Yeah the ear cleaning took about 5 million qtips because i read once you get a little wax on the qtip that you shouldn't put it back in the ferrets ear so thats why i didn't buy those yet. But i probably will try them since you mentioned it.
Oh, i forgot the most important part.. describing my ferrets (well mine and my boyfriends). Their names are Saber and Frenzy, they are both males. Saber is a Black Sable and Frenzy is a Sable Mitt. Which helps out a lot on telling the difference between those little guys. I bought them both from Petco. Frenzy was the first ferret i bought and then i bought saber about a few days later. Frenzy was a little underweight (I figured but the vet confirmed it) but i believe with all the nutrious and plenty supply of food that he is getting fatter. Which is good, i was worried about that little guy.
They are both from Marshall farms. I been reading a little about ADV or ADC? testing. The vet didn't do any bloodwork with the ferrets. She just touched all over him and told me most of the parts were okay (was more specific but i don't remember). Should I get her to do that test?
I tell you what though, i love these guys. They get so hyper and i really think Frenzy is glad i bought Saber because he is having a ball with him. I have a good digital camera but i been so excited about the ferrets and playing with them that i haven't had time to catch any pictures yet but i will!
