Hi all - I've got a quick question for everyone - especially the vets.
I FINALLY found a place in the area that boards animals and will board
ferrets as well. Most places around here don't have the facilities to
I spoke with the owner and she seemed very nice. She says that she
regularly watches one ferret - and she just loves her. We would be
required to bring in everything - cage, food, toys, etc. The owner said
that the cage would be put in a small-medium sized room they had
specifically for ferrets - it's ferret-proofed. Just a plain empty room
with cement floors. The ferrets would get at least 2 hours play time
each day. They use the vet right down the street - and she said that he
has experience with ferrets and its also a 24 hour emergency vet
My concern has to do with the green diarrhea. I know the chances are
slim to none that this other ferret has it, but let's say that it does.
Then we bring in our 5 and they live in the same room as the infected
ferret stayed in. I doubt that they scrub the whole room down after
each ferret leaves. I'm probably being an over-protective mother, but
do you feel this situation is safe for our ferrets?
