Dr. Melissa Nathanson from The

Jones Animal Hospital are added to the
list of clinics to carry the Nobivac DPv vaccine!
Nobivac DPv and Imrab3 are the

get familiar with the latest
vaccine requirements and talk with an experienced ferret vet.

EXTRA! EXTRA! Read all about it!
Long overdue but I have finally put together the Canine
Distemper vaccine information which should help and answer most questions about
both the virus and the vaccine. The new
FERRET CAMP vaccine requirements
includes the AFA recommended vaccination schedule for
healthy ferrets while taking into consideration the recommendations of
experienced ferret vets.
If you have a ferret with special circumstances or you
just want to follow Ferret Camp recommended safety precautions, here
is a modified chart with the
AFA SPECIAL vaccination schedule.
You can also view an official and
current AFA statement regarding their
position on the Nobivac DPv canine distemper vaccine. I encourage you to
print it out and share it with your vet since it refers to actual studies,
journal articles and world renowned veterinarians.
Are you interested in the entire
history? It contains a lot of information that I was supposed to
research and update about 5 years ago. oops....
bought your ferret from Petco, do not assume your ferret received their first CDV
series. In fact, without an available USDA approved CDV vaccine, it is unlikely Petco (or any other pet shop) is vaccinating
ferrets for canine distemper at this time. There is so much confusion and
a lack of information about the vaccine, that you should always ask.
