About The Writers of HealthyFerret.com

A picture of me.

We’re just a bunch of ferret lovers with a plan to build a more complete website of ferrety information. 

We love our little fur kids and are constantly striving to learn more about how best to keep them healthy and happy. We enjoy passing what we learn along to our readers.

Our goal is to focus on health related ferret issues, which you’ll find plenty of in our Health & Safety and Ferret Illnesses and Library sections, but with enough other fun ferret tips, facts, and of course, shopping, thrown in that the website is a fun place to hang out. 🙂

When shopping, we love finding a good deal and love it even more when we can share the news with others. Our latest finds can be found at our Deals page as well as our Ferret Food Cost Comparison Chart. Sign up for our newsletter and you’ll get instant updates from HealthyFerret.com as we post them.

Information found in the pages of HealthyFerret.com is based on a combination of our own experience as ferret owners, help and advice from much more knowledgeable friends with many years of ferret ownership, and hours upon hours of research. 

It’s been a pleasure putting this website together . . . and we’ve learned so much along the way. We hope others will find this information just as beneficial.
