hi Lisa,
Quite a while agio I tried to alert folks to this-oOt being sold at 6 weeks
of age.

In the early 90's pet shop demand grew on the pet industry for ferrets
Marshall's was then pushing the 6 week kit thus the altering is done about
4.5 weeks of age to get them into the petshops-- now the scary thing is we
all have seen the 4.5 kit in the pet shops with milk teeth which means they
were altered about 3.5 weeks of age-- to ship to distributor to ship into
pet shops and the stress involved???? see an interesting picture here?
