Ferret owners....

We have a little female and for the past few months she has been loosing her hair. The vet said nothing was wrong just old age (she is 8 yrs old). Will a ferret wear a sweater if they have never been put in clothes before. I seen ferrets in clothes and such but if they have never worn them will they?

  • I do not have ferret but grew up around them, my brother and sister both had multiple ferrets over the years.

    I think that it is worth a try, i would buy one to begin with, maybe a lighter sweater and let her get used to it.. it might take a while and then gradually build up to a heavier sweater.

    my sister's ferret wore a sweater and a bandanna a lot.

  • Mine uses a harness that resembles a shirt with no issue. I don't see why you couldn't try a sweater. I got him at 3 years old andhe'd never even worn a collar. He's fine with them.

  • Is she just shedding her summer coat, or is she losing hair off of her tail?

  • The vet said she has a skin disorder so she is loosing everything. He said there is nothing we can do about it and that because of her age she might not last through the winter. :[
