Ferret losing fur

Recommended Posts

If its just from the tail its called rats tail-

Rat Tail (aka Tail Alopecia) is where the tail begins to look like a rat's tail, with scaly skin, sparse, bristly hair, and blackheads. This is a harmless condition with no known causes. Aloevera gel works works well to wipe off the black heads.

Its quite a handy website for ferret health

Rats Tail most likely, hormone related (not moult related) but unknown why. As long as the tail hair regrows after winter moult and no further hair loss is noted over the body/any other non-normal symptoms, then really nothing to worry about.
