Subject: Ferrets and Skunks, etc,...

::raising my hand::
"question.. question..." Some skunk owners told me that they carry some
organism naturally, and that there is not way to vanquish it. That the idea
that you can is a myth. I forget what it is. :( Anyway.. I was wondering if
having Skunks with Ferrets have any health issues to be aware about such as
parasites, etc.. And what about Ferrets and Mink, racoon,,,, etc.
I think that there are no health risks in having dogs with ferrets, and even
cats with ferrets. Well ok outside of distemper...but vaccines do take care
of that with prevention. ok all done asking.
