Subject: Rubbing the injection site to prevent reaction

Dr. Ruth Commented"
"Just an anecdotal thing here, with no scientific proof to it. I have
noticed that ferrets who have the vaccine injection site massaged gently for
a couple of minutes after the vaccine is given are less likely to react. Any
one else noticed this?"

Any thoughts as to why this might be? It seems to me that this would speed
the absorption of the drug and increase the chance of reaction, but you
can't argue with success!
