Subject: [ferrethealth] Ear Biting
One of my boys, Malcolm, has always chewed on the ears of the other ferrets but lately he has been more aggressive about it towards Minion. It became so much more aggressive that he actually drew blood. We had to take Minion to the vet and have him treated. Currently we are segregating Malcolm from the other boys while no one is there to supervise but I'm not sure what started him to start biting Minion's ear so hard. We are trying to work with Malcolm and teach him by scruffing and dragging him. I can tell him no when I see him doing it and he'll usually stop but sometimes he'll just keep right on. Anybody has any suggestions? I hate to keep separating him but I don't want Minion to get hurt either. And does anyone know why he starting doing this? My vet's at a loss too.
