Review by

Excellent ferret care guide for a first time fuzzy owner. My only gripes with it were that the author seemed to contradict herself a couple of times and her advice on raw feeding was a little iffy in a few areas. Boiling raw bones before feeding them is pointless and feeding cooked chicken and turkey bones is pretty dangerous. Cooked bones are brittle and prone to splintering while raw bones are soft and much safer to feed.
