Subject: What did my ferret have?

After being exposed to distemper my 8 month old male Ferret showed
symptoms of distemper. Runny nose, thickening pads of feet, crusty
eyes and ears. The vet said if it was distemper he would be dead by
then. He was at the vets for a month getting antibiotic injections
and daily vet care. He got better but temporaly lost function of his
rear legs. About half of his tail also fell off. He's fine now but I
just wonder what happened. Anybody have any clues?
