Ferrets/Best place to get a ferret


Wheres a good place to get a ferret?

Dear Ryan,

Places like Pet Supermarket and PetsMart usually carry good quality ferrets.  I've purchased several from them; no problems.

Ryan, if this is your first ferret, you're going to need a lot of help.  You need to learn about ferret proofing your home, for safety reasons.  You need to know about feeding, treats, toys, litter training, etc.

If you have any questions, please question me via AllExperts and I will help you as much as I can.

Meanwhile here are 2 important things you need to know.  Ferrets are carnivores.  Do NOT give them fruits & veggies.  Make CERTAIN they get their vitamins; I use ferretVite.  Be careful not to exceed the recommended dosage.

I hope you got the cage I recommended.

Fond Regards,

I've raised ferrets very successfully for approximately twelve years. I usually kept three at a time. I presently have one. I've tried a variety of cages, habitats, toys, treats.
