I came across a listing on Amazon for some sort of button mushroom enzyme that you can add to your ferrets water or food- it is supposed to decrease the "Ferret Smell".....The reviews are great- people say that it does work- although the ingredients are minimal, it does have dextrose in it which I thought was a negative....does anyone use this....what are your thoughts? Here is the listing- check it out and tell me your thoughts...
Don't add anything. Diet is the biggest contributor to smell. Ferrets on a raw diet don't have that typical ferret musky stink.
Ferrets: Contessa Kitties: Watson, Oskar DIP Sinnead, Vincent, Boris, Zeus and Athena, Willow, Mr. Frodo, Indie, Lucrezia, Judge, Odin, Miss Emily, Suki, Cody, Aristotle, Butterscotch, Frankenfurter. RIP Herne, Ligeia, and Mr. Stubbs

There's also a review for that product that mentions that "it dries them out too much"--my concern is that it throws the poor fuzzie's system all out of whack. Proper diet and regularly washing bedding (with unscented detergent) will go much farther, and be much more beneficial, than something marketed to us humans.
Simple is the best way to go as your babies are marshal's and fixed there smell will be no where near a whole ferret in breeding season ( yes even the girls smell lol they wear there own perfume on there neck to entice a nice hob lol) diet is also a big contributor to smell kibble ferrets smell a lot worse than raw fed ferrets and the raw fed poop a heck of a lot less lol Bev
Nope! I used it for Sparrow when I first got him years ago, but ultimately I just had to get used to the ferret odor, which only took a few days. Taz will never have that added to his water, because it doesn't really do anything. Its just a money grab.
We'll meet again at the Rainbow Bridge: Sparrow 3/2010- 6/22/2018
