Flea and Tick Medication for Ferrets

Did you know that ferrets can get fleas and ticks just like cats and dogs? Even if your ferret doesn’t go outdoors, he can still be prone to fleas and ticks especially if you have other animals in the home. One way you can help prevent an infestation on your ferret is to ensure that all other animals in your home are on a monthly flea and tick prevention medication. You should also have your ferret on a monthly prevention medication as well. You can schedule an appointment with your vet for the medication, which is available by prescription. Using over the counter prevention medications may not be as effective. Once you have the medication, you should apply it at the same time each month. Watch your ferret to ensure there are no side effects. If your ferret still gets flea and ticks, please notify your veterinary clinic Wichita, KS.
