Vaccination questions mixed answers

Postby Foxtheauthor » Fri May 26, 2017 5:07 am

I picked up Starlord about three weeks ago now and she's doing excellent. She's super happy and lovable. I've heard mixed reviews on how old they should be when you first vaccinate them. TT said 6 months old and only killed virus vaccines. I know they can get parvo and that's a horrible way to die and you can track it in your home on your shoes from an infected area. I read somewhere on here where someone gave a canine spectra 7 to their fox but they didn't say how old it was. I know rabies is at 6 months for any canine. I just want to be sure she doesn't get distemper or parvo. I know it should be ferret version for distemper but what about parvo? My vet is also doing some research as my fox will be his first Foxy patient. He wanted me to get testimonials on what other fox owners vets used. I think he just wants to ease my mind by having me talk to other owners since she's my first fox :roll: . I have ferrets and I'm familiar with their vaccines. (I have no intentions of letting ferrets and fox ever even see one another) :mrgreen:

I thank you for your help/advice in advance.

We just got our Marble and I have been giving her Duramune 5 for dogs. That is the one the breeder said was safe. The Rabies Vaccine is Imrab 3. Foxes have to get it yearly but dogs only have to get that rabies every 3 years. I need help with Flea and Tick. I want to see if the Seresto Collars are OK for foxes. Haven't found the answer yet.

Yes seresto collars work well and are ok for foxes, the only thing I'd worry about is if your fox eats collars like my cole does
You are forever responsible for what you've tamed, responsible pet ownership starts with you.
