Hi my name is Sarah and on behalf of expertvillage.com,
I am here at Petland in Pembroke Pines, Florida to educate you a little bit today about caring
for your ferret. You generally should bathe your ferret about every other week. You do
not want to do it any more frequently than that because bathing your ferret too frequently
will dry out their coat which will make their skin overproduce the oils and then you can
find your ferret has even more of an odor he or she did before you started bathing.
It is also important to protect your ferret against fleas which should be done with a
ferret safe product. You should consult your ferret veterinarian before choosing any products
to treat fleas on your ferret. There are a number of products out there that are safe
for cats and dogs that can cause severe reactions in ferrets and can be very dangerous. Therefore
once again, before treating your ferret for fleas you should contact your ferret veterinarian.
