Ferrets Care, Facts, Pictures

Ferrets Care :
9 Things Every Ferret Owner Should Know About Ferret Care, So That Your Pet Lives The Longest, Happiest Life With You

1. Because ferrets tend to have an odor when they reach adulthood, de-scenting and neutering them may be a good choice if you’re not breeding them.

2. Before getting a new ferret, it’s important to ask if it’s received any vaccinations and been to the vet. If not, it will be your responsibility to take your new pet to the vet for check-ups.

3. A balanced diet for ferrets has at least 35% protein and 20% fat. In addition to ferret food, they can also eat cat food, and need higher-fat levels than felines.

4. Bottle or bowl? Ferrets drink more from bowls than from bottles. However, if you’re unable to change the water often, a bottle is a good alternative.

5. Your ferret is at a potential risk of danger if it can stick it’s head out of any part of the cage you put it in. You should also be sure that the cage or holding place of your ferret has no areas where it’s feet can get caught.

6. Ferrets sleep 15 to 20 hours a day, and prefer dark, padded areas. For privacy of your pet, consider placing a sheet over part of it’s cage to give it a sense of quiteness when it wants to sleep.

7. If it’s potentially dangerous, keep it out of reach of your ferret. Ferrets love to chew on stuff, so be sure that it’s not placed near any plastics, long electrical cords, or anything else that can harm your new pet.

8. Though you should let your ferret out of it’s cage at least twice a day in a ferret proof room, it should never be left unattended. And since they’re social, you can start introducing your new pet to people when it reaches about 30 days of age.

9. One thing you should do with a new ferret is to cultivate good habits. One of these is litter-training.
