Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Question on new ferret

I use skin-so-soft by Avon for my ferrets flea control. It won't
kill the
fleas, but they don't like the smell and will jump off. This should
things under control until your flea med. arrivies. I use 2 or 3
drops in a
spray bottle and just mist over ferret and then massage in. I do
this once a
week after super cleaning their room. I have never seen a flea on
any of my
14 babies. About her hair it sounds to me that she my be in her
summer coat.
But it's hard to say without seeing her. Any type of triple
antibolic cream
would be o.k. for the scratches. Also after the scratches have
healed, try a
little bitter apple around her neck to discourage further nipping.
