Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: Ferret licking hot spot


Have you had the ferret checked out by a vet? The photo shows what
appears to be a considerable bald area along the ventral line. A vet
may have one of those cones small enough to prevent the ferret from
reaching that spot.

Other than that you might get creative with a pair of scissors and the
cuff of a sock.
