Subject: [ferrethealth] Forbes article goes a little into the importance of saving money for inevitable veterinary needs

We personally have found that in the last decade we can pretty well count on any ferret running an average that is over $5,000 during the ferret's lifetime for supplies and veterinary needs, so with about 30 years of ferret experience we believe in
1. Saving for their care
2. Not having more ferrets than we can afford to provide with care and supplies

It's always a good reminder for people who are new to ferrets to learn this beforehand because otherwise they might fall victim to adding too many ferrets due to impulse (sometimes in just one age group which makes it harder yet) and even to actual animal hoarding (having more pets than can be care for).
