Ferrets For Dummies

Ferrets For Dummies, 9780470139431 (0470139439), For Dummies, 2007
When I graduated from veterinary school and started my career in 1976 I didn’t know anyone who kept a ferret for a pet much less had I ever seen one other than in pictures. My only experience with them was in an undergraduate ethology class where I watched a 30-minute video of the behavior of the European polecat, and I wrote a paper on the subject. I had seen and taken care of just about every other kind of “nontraditional” pet in my life, but a real live ferret was yet to be seen.

I saw my first pet ferret patient in 1978, at the small animal practice where I was employed in the Chicago suburbs. By 1980, I started a strictly exotic animal veterinary practice, and gradually these funny, wiggly little critters called ferrets entered my life in gradually increasing numbers, and the fascination began. There were few veterinarians I knew of at the time whos knew much about ferrets; even my colleagues in the United Kingdom, where ferrets had been used for centuries, knew very little about the diseases I was seeing here in the United States. James Fox’s first edition of his book Biology and Diseases of the Ferret would not be published until 1988, so we had little science-based reference material on which to rely.
