Ferret problem

Recommended Posts

Evening lads, my first post so...

My Jill ferret is in heat at the moment and she is with a vasectomised hob. However he has been quite rough with her and she has a bald, sore patch on her neck. I have given it as clean with some water but not sure what to do next or wether I can use savlon antiseptic stuff on it. This is my 2nd year of keeping ferrets so I'm relatively new and was just wondering wether anyone else has had the same problem or know of any way of stopping it from getting worse       many thanks :) IMG_5412.JPG.73b32ff6b984b9d3587c2bc125015a07.JPG

It’s normal it’s what happens but in the wild she would have moved on now. He has done his job she will come out of season so split them up ......

Agree with the above I’m in Aus my Gills have had kits this past 6months and most have battle scars from mating some males are nastier than others when it comes to doing the deed  but that’s the way it is in the ferret world but the gills recover quick
