  • The Clean Label Project Asks: Are We Poisoning Our Pets With Kibble?- Ferret owners who feed their ferrets kibble frequently worry about what makes for the best, from levels of protein and fat to ingredients and their position in an ingredient list. Rarely do we think about our food having, of all things, high levels of arsenic and lead. But when the nonprofit Clean Label Project conducted a double-blind study examining 1,084 popular cat and dog foods in the United States, they discovered shockingly high levels of heavy metals, industrial contaminants, and pesticides. We look into this in depth in Dook Dook Ferret Magazine (including a comparison of the most popular commercial foods we feed our ferrets!)
  • Ferret Adrenal Disease Series: Does Early Spaying or Neutering of Ferrets Cause Adrenal Disease? - When we ask our readers what they want to see in Dook Dook Ferret Magazine, adrenal disease is always requested. It is one of the most common diseases in ferrets and there is a lot of information about it online, making it difficult to sort through what’s true, what’s false, and what’s relevant. In the Ferret Adrenal Disease series, biologist and science writer Dr. Rose-Anne Meissner will explore the disease in three issues of Dook Dook Ferret Magazine:
  1. Part one (this article) will discuss the data that links early spay and neuter practices to the onset of adrenal disease.
  2. Part two will explore the role of light/dark cycles and melatonin in adrenal disease.
  3. Part three will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the common treatment options for the disease. We hope this series sheds light on a topic that too many ferret lovers have to face.
  • After Your Ferret Is Diagnosed With Insulinoma - Dr. Linda Viteznikova explores your options from nutrition to medication on how to manage your ferrets illness, while aiming for a good quality of life for your little buddy.
  • New Ferret Checklist - Looking to get a new ferret? Getting a new ferret is exciting and fun, but there are a lot of things you need to do to be completely ready for your new fuzzy. Whether it’s your first ferret or you’re adding to a growing business, this checklist will keep you on track!
  • Finding A Ferret Vet - No matter where you live, finding a good ferret vet can be a challenge. And unfortunately, if you live in a rural area or a country where ferrets are simply not popular pets, you may find it a challenge to find a vet that even treats ferrets, much less a good one. Not all vets are made equal when it comes to ferrets. In fact, going to the wrong vet with your fuzzbutt could mean life or death! In this article, we give you options and suggestions on how to find the right vet for when your little one needs medical help.
  • Toxic Plants! - This article talks about which popular indoor and outdoor plants could be toxic to your ferrets!

What Members Are Saying:

"I am going to be fostering my very FIRST ferrets ever next month! I have read and researched through so many books and other sources, but the Dook Dook Ferret Magazine is by far at the top with the well known "Ferrets for Dummies". The Dook Dook Ferret Magazine has changed how I will care for my future ferrets by helping to grow my knowledge of ferret care beyond my imagination. The best thing about the magazines is the variety. Every issue is something a little different! I love the magazines because they are informative and full of never-ending fun! I would recommend it to anyone considering becoming a farent and current farents as well because you can always learn more! They also have many great and entertaining stories to read. Because of Dook Dook Ferret Magazine, I will be one of the greatest first-time farents ever and that's makes me so happy inside. Not to mention I work in a pet store, so being able to give reliable information to the community and my fellow employees is so sensational." - Jade Noble

"I love all the artwork, the photo contest, new ferret checklist, how to interview a vet to see if they are suitable, and the clean label project. I haven't even read it all yet, but it's All good stuff. I've been printing each issue out and have in a binder. I've even taken a copy to my vet!" - Susan Jones

"Another superb edition of Dook Dook Ferret Magazine. Just the right balance with the educational side, pictures, readers experiences and a little bit of fun thrown in too. I loved it and have to say I have learned more about little fuzz butts in the last 6 months than I ever thought possible and this from someone who has loved them as pets for well over a decade. Well done Stef and your team!" - Steve Suthurst

"Owning ferrets is a learning experience! You never ever stop learning! I have found that the best new resource is the Dook Dook Ferret Magazine. It is not only entertaining but educational as well. I would highly recommend it for anyone who owns ferrets, and anyone who is considering owning ferrets. I can't wait for each new magazine. It's the best!" - Ferret Shelter Owner Nicole Dolby from Fuzzybutt Ferrets Tasmania.
