You Will Need
Get annual exams
Take your ferret to a veterinarian for annual exams and rabies and distemper vaccinations.
Provide a cage
Provide a cage for your ferret. The cage should be large enough for them to play in, and should contain a litter box, food bowl, and water bottle.
Provide free time
Provide at least three to four hours a day for the ferret to move around outside of the cage. Train your ferret to walk on a leash, and take it for walks.
Crate your ferret if you are transporting them in a car. Secure the crate with a seatbelt.
Supervise your ferret at all times, especially around other pets or children.
