Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Albino/Itchy Skin

My ferret had the same symptoms. It took about a year for us to
figure out what was wrong. As it turned out, my ferret was allergic
to dust
and ferret shampoo. I had to get the shampoo for ferrets with
delicate skin
- I also have to make sure I keep everything she touches as free of
dust as
possible. My vet told me that the ferret can have the same
allergies as
humans. I am not sure if that is true, but since I have been being
careful with dusting and her shampoo she has been okay. I hope this
