Cold & Flu Season

 
 
Ferrets can't catch the common cold, but can catch the more serious "flu" (influenza), so if you are ill make sure to take precautions and limit your ferrets exposure to germs, and take them to the vet if needed.  
 

HEAT STROKE

 

 
Ferrets do not handle heat well at all and they must be kept cool at any cost during the heat of summer. Temperatures above 28degrees can be fatal.  

 
Some examples of keeping ferrets cool are Techni Ice, frozen bottles of water for the ferret to lie against, draping shelters with wet towels or wet hessian bags and, of course, if at all possible bring them inside.  
 
Keep ferrets in cool shaded areas and never leave your ferret in a closed car or a metal cage on a hot day.  
A ferret suffering from heat stroke will become dehydrated and very lethargic, and will very quickly need the services of a veterinarian if it is to survive. As a ferret does not either sweat or pant it has no way of cooling itself down, therefore it is most important that you provide a cool living area for your pet.
