Which one is the "go to" brand of distemper only vaccine? Also, anyone know anesthesia protocol for skunk neuters? Thanks!

Sorry, I am not getting notifications again.

Isoflorane gas only for the neuter.

Purevax (Meriel) Ferret Distemper is the recommended vaccine. Some people have given Nobivac Puppy Distemper. I would recommend a dose of Benedryl about 20 minutes before the vaccine and wait for at least 30 to 45 minutes in the vet's office to make sure there is no reaction. I only do 1 shot of the distemper after 20 weeks. You can run titers afterward or give one more at age 3. I have had skunks still protected years after 1 vaccine.
