"We're new to town and read the reviews for Dr Price and decided to Windmill a go. So happy we did! Their whole office from the front desk to the treatment and meeting Dr Price was 5 Star all the way! I know our babies will be well taken care of! I even had a technician help me out to the car which made my day as I had my hands FULL! Would recommend to anyone! "

"This is the best vet in Abilene! I have tried countless other veterinary clinics and Windmill out-does them all. They value my pet and my experience more than my money, and they are always showing care and compassion to both my dog and me. They even call after every appointment, just to check-up and make sure we're doing okay! AMAZING service and incredible people!"

Our records show your ferret is due for its Distemper vaccine. Unvaccinated ferrets are very susceptible to Canine (dog) Distemper. It is often spread by sneezing or exposure to infected dogs, or the owners carrying the virus home from contact with carrier or infected dogs. It has an incubation period of 6-9 days and is almost always fatal in ferrets. The ferrets become depressed, can have dark tarry stools, develop a skin rash, nasal and eye discharges and eventually nerve degeneration. There is no successful treatment.  Early signs can be mistaken for human influenza, to which ferrets are also susceptible.

The good news is that vaccination is very successful at preventing Canine Distemper infection in ferrets. Generally, ferrets receive their first distemper vaccination at 6-8 weeks, a booster vaccination at 10-12 weeks, and again at 14-16 weeks of age. They are then given a yearly distemper booster vaccination.
