Subject: [Ferret-Health-list] RE: Merial Ferret Distemper Vaccine

Hi Mary,
You were not the only one having a hard time finding out about
the new vaccine. It took me 3 different phone calls, but I finally
had a phone rep contact the technical services vet to find out
what is going on. The vaccine is USDA approved. They are currently
contacting each state to get each states approval to sell the
They expect the vaccine to be ready to go the week of Sept 10th!
They plan on advertising this new distemper vaccine in several of
the vet
magazines. No letter writing needed, but you might want to contact
them again in Sept about exact release date (and about advertising
in Modern Ferret magazine).
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
