Thank you for posting this psot.
I have to admit I was a bit frustrated the other day.
I gave advice to a new ferret owner. Just giving some helpful hints and stuff I learned and I had two people basically shoot me down.
They said ferrets are only meat eater. Which is a lie becasue I did my research and contiune doing my research. I haved talked to a vet who specializes in ferret and people whom have bred them for years.
They said it was ok if they eat raw vegtables and they were the ones who told me some treats they like. Also I have a ferret that won't eat meat. So he is on a special diet. That and he had panceratic cancer. It is sort of like dieabties( 1 in 3 get it) which he had from day one. Well they had there suttle way of saying it was the fruit loops and I was a horrible person. It is a treat people. That and we love are animals to death, we never put them in harms way. Also our vet gave us a complimnet the last time we toke them in. For a ferret he thought would not make another six months due to his minor seizures. He is now 6 years old and was diaignoised when he was one. ANy time he looks sluggish he gets honey water my husband or I hold him and in ten mintues he is back to bouncing around again. He sometimes has a bigger seziure and that is when we stay up with him all night
Also our ferrets are out when we are home my husband plays with them constanlty. They are happy and healthy and play for hours while most peoples sleep all the time. They even sleep on us and follow us around the house. I guess they hate us right.
Either way I just needed a chance to vent. Sorry for the long note.
As I tell ever one I am not a vet. But I do my resaeach and learn every day. If you learn things off the internet use some descretion. But if your animals are healthy and happy you can't be doing to much wrong. That goes for any type of animal..
