'Tis The Season

The flu seaon that is!

Hello guys! I'm sure you're wondering why I'm talking about flu season on a ferret blog but I promise you I have a point! Just like people can get the flu ferrets are susceptible to influenza too. You can give them the flu and they can give it to you! So if you're feeling like you're getting the flu remember to limit contact with your fuzzy baby, wash your hands often before any necessary contact and be sure to watch for any symptoms showing with your ferret(s).
Symptoms can include runny eyes and nose, sneezing, little appetite, no energy and a fever.
Be sure to separate any sick ferrets from healthy ones. And of course never try and diagnose what your ferret has yourself!! Always take a sick ferret to a ferret knowledgeable vet! No one likes having the flu, humans or ferrets! So stay healthy and if you do get sick take every precaution not to spread it to friends or fuzzy ferrets!
