We'v had a lot of discussion around the pro's and cons of distemper shots, heartworm meds, etc. If you have a sensitive and/or older ferret, and/or if you're just plain paranoid (who? Me??? ) about bad luck with medicines and/or outside "cooties", you may want to consider bringing the "great outdoors" inside.
Hey, you can even just be buried under a pile of snow with sub-zero temperatures!!!
Those "el cheapo" plastic child's swimming pools work great for this.... ** try creating a beach in the pool uing sand with a shallow pan of water embedded in the sand....wet down some of the san near the "shoreline". bury some shells, andor toys in the sand and put some in the water as well
** make a woodland setting with soil, banches, dried leaves - maybe even some crickets or a mouse?
** even fall leaves alone make wonderful noisey playground. How about some of that freshly fallen now if it's too cold to stay outside?
Be sure to thoroughly check any iyems you bring inide for NAsty bugs. Choose items that aren't chemicalized, etc. Be creative and have loads of fun Your ferret certainly will!
