Hi everyone!

This community has been pretty quiet lately but hopefully there are still some people reading. I realize this is an issue I could probably just Google but I would feel so much better about getting advice and input from you all.

Basically, I'm wondering whether I should be doing anything about my ferrets' teeth. They're getting older and tend to have more plaque build-up than when they were younger. Do you brush your ferrets' teeth? And if so, how do you do it and what do you use? Thanks!

Any owners here in Montana? I have a friend that is new to ferrets that unfortunately has adopted a biter that is more than she can handle. She cannot keep him (at least, not the way he is right now) but doesn't want to take him back to the pet store for obvious reasons.

Or any referrals for a rescue in Montana or anything like that are also welcome.

Thanks in advance!

Hot damn these ferret communities are super dead. It is all about the facebook and twitter now, I guess. Meeper season is getting close. Can't wait this year. We are going to have some crackin litters. I'll do a photo dump here for anyone who might still be active.

Ferret photo dump right here.Collapse )

Ferret Food

current mood: curious

I'm not interested in getting in any arguments about pet food (been there done that over years of being in the veterinary field) but I would like to know owner's opinions on 2-3 of the highest quality ferret foods (kibble only.) Not interested in RAW diet so no need to mention that.

I am thinking Totally Ferret or Ferret EVO as those seem to be the top choices - yet I have seen bad press about them as well.

Reason is I want to switch to a higher quality ferret food in the next few months or so. I have been using the same ferret kibble for 13 years but would like to change. Again I'm not looking to get into a war about pet foods and am a bit hesitatnt to even ask any pet food questions online because it always seems to lead to a pet food war :)

Any info is appreciated thanks!

This week in ferret news.....

current mood: busy

Lots of happenings in the ferret world this month, both good and bad.

Bad being the Triple F farms PETA story.

Good being yesterday was International Ferret Day


Just to remind everyone on this group, filming of the fantastic ferret movie "Jake and Jasper: A Ferret's Tale" is pretty much complete. The director just released the FIRST trailer.

I don't know about you guys, but I already teared up when watching this x_x

Donations can still be given on their website for continuing production costs.

Yesterday I went down the road and took a photo of this awesome street. I'd like to live on this street for obvious reasons :)



And lastly Tenchi and Pachi say hi.

cruelty at ferret mill

I am not a big fan of PeTA, but if the USDA--whose requirements we all know are minimal--is backing up their findings, then I have to believe this.

(((very graphic video at this link)))

investigator's notes (graphic text)

the USDA's findings

I am sitting here in tears. I want to take them all home.

This is enough to make me NEVER buy a ferret again. Only rescues from here on out for me.

I am sadly going to have to rehome my ferrets.
my apartment complex has changed their pet policy, and I cannot keep them
Is there anyone in the Houston area that can take in 3, 2 year old ferrets?
2 males, 1 female.

Safe way to de-flea the playroom?
by ree (emogoldfish)

 My ferret has a playroom, with a few toys that can be easily cleaned. However, he also has a maze made out of Capri Sun boxes. Somehow, fleas got in his playroom (no clue how, none of the other animals are allowed in there & are all treated for fleas). 

Is there a safe way to de-flea the room, most importantly his maze? He does get plain Advantage every month, so I'm so concerned with them biting him as I am with them just being there (& climbing all over me when we're playing)
