Subject: [ferrethealth] aggressive ferret, prozac dosage?

hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has had experience with giving prozac to an
aggressive ferret. Any luck? What is the usual dosage?

We have one problem fur child that we have tried almost everything to
get him to stop biting us, but he continues.

Ahkee, aka vampire fuzzy, is 1.5 years old neutered male. As long as
he isn't biting or clamping down on us he's a good ferret. We have a
total of 6, he is our only biter. He's our alpha.

Sometimes when he bites us I think he's trying to get us to play,
other times for no apparent reason if he see bare skin he goes for it.
He's also the king of the lick lick chomp.

He is in good health, was at the vet recently.

We have used our carrier as a time out for him, have scruffed and said
"no bite" after he bites, have tired holding him while talking to him
to calm him down after biting. No luck.

Any suggestions would be great.

Thank you!
