I believe that it is exactly the opposite. Many vets and home users
quit using Fervac and went back to the unapproved Galaxy-D because of
the tremendous number of reactions with Fervac (from 1-10% according
to my research). I know of many ferrets that have had adverse
reactions or died from Fervac. Personally have never known of an
adverse reaction to Galaxy although I'm sure they have occured.

I don't know who did this page but the information seems accurate
(except for the error in the banner about "third most popular pet"):

I have used it since at least 1995 (when Cooper went into
anaphylactic shock and almost died from Fervac) and I think since 93.
