Jen's got it! A lot of times, the flu will pass through a ferret without issue, just giving them some unpleasant symptoms for a few days. But definitely keep an eye out. Getting the flu can severely compromise their immune systems as well, so avoid taking them outside and such, if it's something you do regularily.

We hope you all feel right as rain soon!

Our girl loves to climb in and out of my rubber boots. I've found the insoles all over the house.

Greetings from South Lancaster. We just adopted a lovely little girl from the Cornwall SPCA. We named her Freya. She is an absolute sweetheart and loves my rubber boots. She is fitting in very nicely.

We found a vet, after a 24 hour search through the phone book and from references, in Winchester who has given Freya a passing health exam. It is a long way to travel but the vet is friendly, seems knowledgeable, and finds ferrets adorable.

Just keep in mind, although you may not be showing signs or symptoms, you can be a carrier for colds and the flu. Hence, you can pass it along to more vulnerable people, such as children and the elderly, as well as to your ferrets.

Simple rules to remember: keep them well hydrated, i.e. plenty of fresh clean accessible water. If needed, separate the sick from the healthy, especially if you have  older ferrets, they are more prone to being hit harder. And "duck soup" is your friend:) There are lots or variations for the recipe that can include "Ensure" or "Glucerna" and "Pedialyte" to help with extra hydration when needed.

Just remember, when in doubt, take the little ones to a ferret-knowledgeable vet.

Good luck!
Jen L.
