Subject: Itchy Ferrets
Lily used to come flying out of a dead sleep to scratch. It
me when she did it. Some ferrets are just itchier than
addition to the suggestions others have made, when washing
I use only detergents with no perfumes or dyes (several
these now), no fabric softener, no dryer sheets. I only use
a touch of bleach if
necessary, usually none at all.
And, don't bathe them very often. Mine are bathed twice a
year, if that.
As long as their bedding is kept clean (I routinely strip
their cages down
and wash everything every other week), they rarely need to
unless they get into something terribly messy.
