Despite being domesticated for over 3000 years, many vets still feel unequipped to deal with these playful pets. Over the last ten years there has been a dramatic increase in ferrets being kept purely as pets and now there are more pet ferrets than working ferrets in the U.K. With an undeserved reputation as being aggressive, smelly animals, most ferrets are actually delightful, curious and playful animals. The vast majority of pet owners identify their pet as being a member of their family and as such they expect the same high level of care for their pet ferret as their pet dog or cat. This session is designed to show how ferrets can easily be integrated into your caseload. Husbandry will be briefly covered and introduce common conditions encountered in the ferret. Time will be given for questions and discussion. This session is suitable for: veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses, and clinical stage veterinary students.
