Caring for your ferret means managing its health and watching for early signs of illness. Just like in humans, not all illnesses are 100% preventable. But with awareness and pro-active routine care, you can avoid unnecessary medical expenses while helping improve your pets quality of life.
In the event of a serious emergency, first call your VETERINARIAN! If you do not have one, here are some suggestions.
Being aware of the early symptoms of illness and disease in our precious companions not only improves their quality of life, but can help lower out-of-pocket costs. “If only” is something we hear all too often. Not all disease can be cured. But its effects can sometimes be minimized or better managed through early action and intervention. There is no better observer of your pets behavior, moods, and activity than you.
