Remember even if vaccinated if a bite or scratch is reported your pet exotic will be taken and tested(killed) for rabies. It's the law. If you tell a DR your pet caused the injury the DR has to report it to the health Dept by law and they will come for your animal. Avoid contact with untrusted people and if you do get injured claims something else caused it, is what most people do.

can't remember the age of the first vaccine. I think a month or two.

as for worming, get them tested first, if there are no worms, don't give the fox something that is not needed.

also, keep in mind, if you keep your fox in an enclosure at adult age, chances are very slim they will get rabies.
the distemper would be good, just in case. animals get rabies when bitten by another rabid animal.

frontline for puppies is OK, but, there is other spot on that will do more. I think it is revolution.

Tiny Tracks recommends giving foxes their vaccines at 3 months. Other vets recommend giving them the vaccines at the same time you would as a puppy.

My vet really felt like I should give the vaccines at puppy intervals. She called around and that was the answer she got from several other sources. Obviously I'm not wanting to discount Dave (Tiny Tracks) because he has worked with foxes for decades.

Speaking to your vet to see which one would be best for you in your area would probably be the best idea.

Are vaccinations for exotics standard across the board?

You're not going to run into something like this...source A said vaccine Z is recommended, while source B said vaccine Y is recommended.

Should the breeder know what vaccines will work for your exotic, or is this all on the animal doctor you choose for your exotic?

I would usually go with the breeder, personally. Many vets do not have experience with exotics, whereas a breeder does and has a vet who is comfortable treating their animals already. So I'd go with what the breeder does in most cases, assuming they're reputable.

That being said, it's not good to dismiss the advice from your vet. Some diseases may be more common in your area, and you may need to vaccinate for additional stuff.

I haven't really seen conflicting info for the actual types of vaccines used. That part seems pretty standard, at least where foxes are concerned.
