The biggest reasons that I can think of to separate the shots is that if your
ferret does have a reaction, its unknown which vaccine, or if it was the
combination of both shots that triggered the reaction. I separate the shots
by a couple months - just because it worked that way for me -- I'm at the vet
so frequently with shelter kids that its nothing to just add my crew to the
load going to the vet.
