Mange in Ferrets

Treatment

 

Ivermectin, an anti-parasitic medication is generally used to treat mange. However, antibiotic creams or oral drugs may also be used to prevent secondary skin infection due to scratching.

 

Living and Management

 

It is important to thoroughly cleanse and disinfect the ferret's living area, as re-infection can occur if it comes in contact with the parasite again. Cleaning the area is also important because this particular parasite can also infect humans.
