Is It ok to buy an 8 week old ferret

by Yasmin

My mom keeps aining that ferret's are wild animals but are they really?

ANSWER:

Hi Yasmin, ferrets are not wild animals. In fact they have been domesticated for over 2,500 years! They are as domestic as your average cat or dog. Check out the ferret history page for more info.

And yes, it is ok to bring home an 8 week old ferret. If it was any younger I would say no, but 8 weeks is a good time to wean a ferret. Some ferret breeders even wait to 10 weeks which is probably even better.

Unfortunately there are a lot of people who sell their ferrets at 6 weeks and younger (which I hate). A ferret needs to be with its mum at this stage so that it can develop properly with its brothers and sisters and learn what being a ferret is all about.

Hope this helps! :)

Thanks
Stef

Ferrets require a lot of consideration and require a ton of your time. I would suggest getting more than one as one can turn out to be desolate. They are extremely animal creatures and like to get their noses stuck into everything. Academic expert writers

buy youtube subscribers Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time. youtube views

Ferret with 8 week old is a safe to buy as pet animal. Proper care has to be taken when dealing with ferret. A ferret bite would cause serious infection. Ferret also need vaccine which is a must for pet ferret.

Of course there is nothing problem in bring an 8-week-old ferret to home. But sell rewards points you must give care double times that you give to an adultferret. Because the baby ferrets, are very less resistive to different diseases.
