Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: Terrible Reaction to Distemper Injection

Thankfully delayed reactions are indeed rare. I have only had one ferret with anaphylaxis following a Distemper vaccination and unfortunately, it was a delayed reaction. She had been pre-treated with Benadryl and I remained 30 minutes at the vet's office. The vet checked her before we left and she seemed fine.

6 hours later she collapsed at home and was passing frank blood. I rushed her back and fortunately with veterinary intervention, she survived. My vet said it was the worst vaccine reaction he had seen in his 10 years of practice as an exotics vet. It shook both of us.
