Subject: [ferrethealth] CDV rates

There was a study long ago which was done with ferrets to see how CDV progresses in a colony. When the majority of the ferrets were sufficiently vaccinated, 75 percent vaccinated, very few of the remaining UNvaccinated ferrets got CDV, but if 75 percent were UNvaccinated then the disease went through like wildfire. You can find it in the first edition of the text, Biology and Diseases of the Ferret, and I suspect that it is also mentioned in the second edition but lack time to look in them for you,especially tonight.

So, slow spread is a result of the previous vaccinations.
