Subject: I need help with parasite I can't identify

I bought a 1 year old ferret in a pet shop, I a few day after I saw
she was full of fleas and something else... The other thing is WAY
bigger that a flea (the flea being a black little grain of sand), I
can see the details of the body. Black-light brown in color, move in
the fur when I tried to look at them. What is that thing, and how can
I get rid of it?

I tought about Advandtage and other flea treatment, but I don't want
to make my ferret sick. Which one is OK and what is the dosage?

Thanks a lot.
