    • Lessen Ferret Odor in 5 Easy Ways There have been stories about ferret odor and smell. How some ferrets stink and how others cannot simply stand it. There are those who have been taken aback with ferrets, all because they feel that they really are stinky pets. But what is the truth behind these stories? Was there ever a likely chance for us owners to lessen their smell? Try the following steps. Be reminded that ferrets are unique and their traits are somewhat indicative of this uniqueness. Their genetic makeup comprises of glands that do secrete oils and sweat, thus causing ferret odor to exist. On the other hand, there are things that can be done to reduce and avoid having stinky pets. 1. Ferrets are born with anal sacs that do aggravate their inherent smell. These musk glands are concentrated on their skin, most specifically in areas such as the body and the entire face. Hormonal activity is also a relative cause of such smell and one of the preventive measures is to have them neutered or spayed. 2. For first time owners, they get so excited that they tend to become so vain with their pets. Regular baths are often given as part of their hygiene regimen, but doing so likewise aggravates ferret odor and smell. The solution is to not bathe your pets on a regular basis. You can still clean them but make sure to not overdo this routine. 3. Never spray your pets with fresheners or perfume. Any scent that is for humans are not really suitable for ferret use. These items are considered harmful as these may cause allergies and infections. Skin problems can also be a probable effect, due to the alcohol content that is present in many of these perfumes. 4. Ear cleaning and tooth brushing are also helpful. Remember to clean your pets’ ears and have their teeth checked as much as possible. Inspecting your ferret’s ears for possible ear mites can also be a likely cause of ferret odor. So, it is better to monitor their total condition. 5. Lessening ferret odor is not only limited to baths, ear cleaning or hygienic procedures. You have to clean their cages too. Any item that needs to be washed must be replaced and regularly monitored. Using a mild detergent and disinfectant is also advisable. Aside from these tips, keeping their litter boxes clean is also applicable. Lining cage floors with washable mats also proved useful. Hammocks and sleep sacks must be washed once they get soiled. Plus, your choice of litters should either be pine pellets or made of aspen wood.
