"3. Results 3.1. Trial 1: effects of GonaCon administered to ferrets with ACD...
For other clinical signs of ACD there was a wide range of responses; many clinical signs, including swollen vulva in females, and pruritus, muscle atrophy, hind limb weakness, and sexual activity or aggression, did not completely resolve after the GonaCon injection....
GonaCon has been demonstrated to be an effective, well tolerated vaccine for preventing onset of ACD in ferrets. Although partially effective as an ACD treatment for ferrets, GonaCon did not eliminate all signs of ACD."
If it were available and cheap enough, I'd give it along with Suprelorin. Jaffa has shown no sign of hair regrowth after his Des implant. But as an actual ACD preventive? JOY!
It might be worth it to try it out with kits before they hit sexual maturity. The cost will be a big factor since it is yearly. The study also uses a small amount of ferrets.. I'd like to see how it does with a major trial.
