Thimerosal is a mercury-containing preservative used in some canine vaccines - in humans the potential for neurological problems in children, was enough to have this ingredient removed from vaccines, (so I've read on the internet)!

Have there been any studies on the effect of Thimerosal in relation to seizures in dogs? Anyone know of any canine vaccines for distemper or parvo that are free of this preservative?

Thanks, and happy holidays to all!
