The number of ferrets kept as pets is rising each year in Europe and North America. They are ideal companions for those who lead busy lives, since they are friendly, playful and easy to look after. Today, veterinary practices see more ferrets than ever before, for a wide range of diseases as diverse as those seen in the dog and cat, and veterinarians are increasingly called upon to provide advice and treatment for these more unusual pets. This book is intended to be a practical and concise guide to the management of ferret diseases to assist veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses alike. Information on these animals is seldom available in convenient form elsewhere. This book brings together in one volume a wealth of useful information for all those involved in the care and management of ferrets.
