Michelle, if someone responded to this I missed it, but size does not seem
to have any correlation to reactions. I have had some of my big boy
breeders have reactions as well as tiny rescues.

The worst session I ever had was a couple years ago when my friend and I
vaccinated about 20 ferrets and a quarter of them have reactions. One nearly
died. What a nightmare that was! At least we had the epi, dex and benadryl
to inject them with pronto, and everyone did make it.
