Subject: [ferrethealth] Vaccine boosters for adult ferrets : having done today. Should i?

Hi everyone,

I should have posted sooner, but that nagging question wasn't as
strong as it is now.... so hopefully I'm posting in time to get
answers before I leave to take my two youngest ferrets for a 'booster.'

Milo & Maui are about 1.5 to 2yrs of age and was given to me by a
couple who simply didn't want them anymore. They weren't abused, but
they didn't have the greatest life due to the couple really not
knowing anything about ferrets. they were clean, well fed, happy....
but they were never vetted nor given vaccines.

A couple of weeks ago I took them in for their first shots. No
reactions. Today they are supposed to get 'boosters,' just as kits
would get. I've read conflicting information on wether or not a
booster is needed or even recommended for ferrets were are no longer
kits and have never been given a vaccine.

As I mentioned, Milo & Maui have had their first shots two weeks ago,
and I'm to leave in a little over an hour to get their boosters. But
that nagging question remains.... is it a good idea since these guys
are somewhere around age 2?

The first initial vaccines from two weeks ago... are they sufficient
to protect them, or do they really need that booster?
