The five welfare needs for ferrets

There is no one “perfect” way to care for ferrets because every ferret and every situation is different, but certain essential needs must be met. It is up to you how you look after your ferret, but you must take reasonable steps to ensure that he/she:

  • has a suitable place to live
  • has a healthy diet and access to clean fresh water
  • is able to behave normally
  • has appropriate company
  • is protected from pain, suffering, injury and disease
