Aleutian Disease in Ferrets

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

If your ferret is a carrier of the virus but it seems healthy, you could quarantine your ferret away from other pets. If you own other ferrets, you may want to have your ferrets tested and cull all the animals harboring the parvovirus.

 

Living and Management

 

This disease can take up to two to three years to become active and cause illness. The best way to prevent it is to keep your ferrets away from other ferrets and any mink. Also, you may want to have your ferrets tested (especially if you had a ferret ill with Aleutian disease) and cull the ferrets carrying the parvovirus.

 

Prevention

 

Unfortunately, there is currently no vaccine for this illness.
