Hi everyone !
I recently rescued a whole male who is approx. 2 yrs old. I
took him to the vet had him ADV tested, vaccinated and
nuetered. My vet wanted to descent him at the same time ? It
is my understanding that descenting an adult ferret is
dangerous and unnecessary. I've heard horror stories about
adult ferrets being descented. My vet said he never heard of
such a thing. In any case the new little fuzzy (Teddy) is
doing well and is not descented. Does anyone have any
information on this subject that I could print out and give to
my vet for future reference ?
