Overview

Ferrets make wonderful pets. They are very intelligent and quite clever. Today, ferrets are considered to be the third most popular companion pet in the U.S. They are fairly easy to care for and feed. They require frequent cage cleaning and should have annual vet check-ups to maintain their health. They are well worth the effort. Ferrets are quite entertaining with their antics. They love to play and interact with their owners and with other household pets. If you are considering becoming a ferret owner, please read this book. You will gain all the knowledge you need to be a wonderful ferret owner. This is a how-to manual, a hands-on reference book to assist ferret owners in the proper care and maintenance of their pet ferret. This book was written to be used as a guide, enabling you to provide the very best care for your ferret. It is written in everyday language that everyone can understand and includes a list of shelters and rescues nationwide, which are meant to help assist those shelters and rescues with more adoptions and donations. I tried to incorporate one or two shelters/rescues per state. This book offers information about some of the diseases and illnesses known to the ferret world. A second book is currently being written that will provide extensive, up-to-date information regarding ferret health care. Holistic approaches to treatment will be examined as well as surgical procedures, medications, and therapies for sick ferrets.

    Just say no to this book

    This book is very misleading. The info contained contradicts itself in many areas. First it says fruit and veggies are bad for ferrets, then elsewhere it says a little friut and veggies are fine. I give this book a thumbs down.

    Disappointing Book

    I found this book to has no useful information on the care of ferrets and some of the infomation in this book i found could be misleading to a new ferret owner. This book is about general basic ferret talk or a cut back version of other ferret book out on the shelf. I found the book 'Ferrets For Dummies' to be a better book to get the information a new ferret owner would need to care for their pet. I also found the writer of this book not at all helpful in answering any questions i asked conserning the book itself.

    Give this one a skip

    I read the book today and frankly, I'm very disappointed. The book borrows heavily from previous ferret authors and is just the same old information repeated. The book is written in a very jerky, unituitive manner and made getting through the book tedious at best. Save your money is my advice!
