    Hi! My name is Christen and I just moved to Alaska and my apartment won't allow me to have a dog or a cat so I'm considering getting a ferret. I don't know what sex to chose for one and for another I'm really concerned about the smell. I will scoop the litter several times a day and change the...

    :gaah: IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD THE VET, DON'T BUY THE PET!!! :gaah: Yes, it's entirely possible that the pet you just bought yesterday might get sick tonight! :censored: The fact that you just spent money to buy it and house it doesn't mean you don't have to provide vet care for it!

    Why would Gunny start biting me all of a sudden. I thought she was protecting me from my mother when she bit her but now she is biting my feet and I dont' know why. When she starts to bite I put her up but that doesn't seem to be working. Should I start squirting her with water or what?
  5. Pet Health Concerns
    I have three ferrets, and i think the beautiful baby has had Giardia since the day she came home.:confused: After several trips to three different vets over the course of a year, we finally proved she has the nasty parasites (Giardia). She was prescribed Metronidazole for 10 days, and for...

    Hi everyone! I am kind of worried about my ferret, Smokey. She's nearly 6 1/2 years old, which I hear is pretty old. She's balding, though. She has fur from her shoulder blades and forward, but the rest of her fur is really thin, and there hasn't been any on her tail for over a year. She's...

    There are two ferrets up for adoption here in town, they are 10 months old, descented and neutered boys. And they are beautiful too!! I've never owned ferrets before but I've played with them and they are so endearing and funny. I know they are prone to health problems like adrenal disease...
  10. Ferret Discussion
    Hi, I'm new here and have joined mainly to ask for other people's input on the pros and cons of having one ferret or more. Up until about 18 months ago we had a darling little male, named Scallywag. He developed Adrenal Disease and then Insolinoma, so eventually when we could no longer keep him...

    Please Please Please don't attack me for any question I may ask!! Just trying to learn everything possible . . . and I cannot find any helpful websites, who better to ask than the wonderful community here at Paw-Talk!! 1.) What do you feed your ferret? Is it correct that they need 35-40%...

    Not that it is important to anyone here... but I got the results back from the vet & the tumor was indeed a chordoma as I thought & thankfully it was benign (non-cancerous). From what the lab stated in their report it also looks as though the vet did indeed get all of the infected tissue out as...

    Since you have more experience with older ferrets I was wondering if you could give me a couple ideas here. I noticed about a week ago Snoopy had lost some hair on the tip of his tail. (nowhere else though.) The thought of adrenal did go through my mind, but because it was the tip & not the...

    well i just found the forum todya and must say what a wonderfull resource. I am currenlty owned by two ferrets. My newest a 4 mth old female badger/blaze named bramble. For a kit she is actually considerably calm and very much a sweetheart. She was a moment of weakness one day in my local...

    What Is It? Adrenal disease is most commonly hyperplasia or a benign tumor. It is not Cushing's Disease; adrenal disease in the ferret affects a different part of the adrenal gland than it affects in dogs (which do get Cushing's Disease). Thus, treatment for Cushing's Disease (that is...

    Hi, I'm pretty new to Paw Talk but it seems like a really great place so far! I just wanted to let you know about an experience that we have had with our ferret and find out if this has happened to anyone else here. Archangel ~she goes by Sister at home! :) ~ is about 8 years old. About...

    I had an adorable ferret named sassy. So playful and loving. Died last week at the vet. Had some kind of cancer and her hair fell out. We still loved her though. I hope she was comfortable in her last moments.

    Hi! I am swinging between a ferret and a flying squirrel. I've never owned a flying squirrel, although I have owned a ferret before, but I was younger and didn't really get the concept of actually taking care of it.. My mom did everything.. Can someone possibly give me some Ups and Downs to...

    First off, thanks for reading this topic...so, here's the scenario: I -really- want a ferret. And, about three months ago, that was fine with my parents. But, they seem to have developed a biased opinion to ferrets. I just need a little help and information. If you could tell me whether my...

    My new ferret Jelly is a bit oily. He's an albino so you can really tell. His coat is kinda a yellow tint and his tail is super super dark. Any way I can get him un-oily?
