"An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure."
Ferrets require routine health maintenance from you--your ferret's care-giver, as well as routine health checks from a qualified veterinary professional. The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides good advice on how: "Healthy Pets - Healthy People".
The Health Desk is your Resource Center for understanding the routine care your ferret requires to stay healthy. Also, please consult the allFerrets Veterinary Listing for a qualified ferret-specialist near you.
