Pet ferrets can bring hours of entertainment and fun. But there are a number of things prospective pet owners should know about these pocket-sized pets before they bring one home.
The America Veterinary Medical Association has created some excellent resources for those considering a ferret companion. They have posted a video, “Ferrets 101,” on the AVMA YouTube channel that contains lots of good advice about ferrets and how to take care of them responsibly. If you are considering bringing a ferret into your home, we encourage you to view this video as well as download and read their brochure, "Selecting a Ferret."
