Ferret Health, Nutrition and Safety Information

Welcome to HealthyFerret.com! We hope you’re finding the information you need on our site.

Are you thinking about purchasing a ferret? If so, a good place to start on our site would be Things to Think About Before You Get a Ferret (Or Any Pet), and Why Choose a Rescue Ferret.

After that, if you’re still needing more information about these wonderful little pets, I’d recommend reading the posts below. These will give you a good beginning in understanding the unique nature of the ferret and what is needed to provide for its care.

Of course, you’ll also want to know more about healthcare required for your new playmates. Vaccine Requirement and When to See a Vet will tell you most of what you need to know in that area.

Once you’ve covered the basics of ferret care, Emergency Planning With Ferrets in Mind is a good read for planning for the unexpected.
