All ferret owners should be familiar with clipping their pets’ nails. It’s not always the easiest task to accomplish, but it’s important, for the well-being of both you and your ferret. Clipping nails is a critical part of the grooming process that can’t be skipped.
Your ferrets nails should be clipped at least once a month. The more often you you do it, the more accustomed your ferret will become to the routine.
If you’re new to cutting ferret nails and nervous about getting it right, it might be best to enlist the help of a friend. Your friend can gently scruff your ferret while you get the job done. Be sure to reward with plenty of treats afterward!
