I am not a vet, just a long time ferret owner. I see you having three
options. 1) Find out whhich vaccine she was given and give the other,
that is is she got Fervac-D, give Galaxy-D next time with pretreatment.
2) Wait until Merial releases their new vaccine and use that. 3) Don't
vaccinate her any more. You can have a titer test run to see if she
really needs the vaccine.
