Subject: [ferrethealth] Ferret Marking everthing because of unaltered visitor

Hi, I need input/advise.

Two weeks ago I had a whole male ferret in my house for about an
hour. He was in a carrier and then ran around the house for a
little bit. I kept my six locked in their room. After he left I
let mine out and they all could smell the ferret that had been in their house and in their carrier. No one thought anything of it, But Freddie kind of flipped out over it. He would go into the carrier and just go crazy rubbing and rolling and making little noises. I have never seen him act like this and I never even knew he had a VOICE. I have other very talkative ferrets but he has never made a peep. Anyways we thought it was funny how he would go into the carrier constantly and do this so we left the carrier out for a while. Also when he would come out of the carrier after "flipping out" in there he would walk over everything he would see and mark it like an adrenal ferret would do. He has no signs whatsoever of adrenal disease.(that I can outwardly see). He is at the point now where he is constantly walking around talking and carrying on and just going out of his way to walk over everything really slow marking it, including my feet. Is this normal for him to act thi
s way over an unaltered ferret being in the house (two weeks ago) or is this an early sign of adrenal disease in his future? If I opted to get him a deslorelin implant just to be safe, would it hurt him in any way if he is NOT adrenal???

Thanks for any input or info,

with Freddie,Tango,Cocoa,
Daisy,Slim,& White Guy

my Pepe,Doofy,Sammy,Levi,& Sissy
