There are two annual vaccines recommended to those who own a ferret.
This is the same disease as in dogs. In ferrets it causes neurologic disease and it is usually fatal. It is important to use a vaccine specifically designed for ferrets whenever possible due to the higher rate of serious vaccine reactions seen in ferrets getting canine vaccines.
This vaccine protects against this fatal neurologic disease that is prevalent in New England. This disease can also be spread to humans and is fatal for humans. Rabies vaccine is also required by law in Massachusetts and will help with looser quarantine restrictions if your pets bites someone. There are few brands of rabies vaccine approved in ferrets, so it is very important to make sure you get the proper vaccine in order to get a Rabies Certificate.
