C. Cage and Equipment

Terms of birth:

  • Do not have a gap
  • Not from material that is easily decomposed or easily bitten
  • Well ventilated

An elongated body with a flexible joint articulation makes ferrets able to escape through a narrow gap though. Window, the connections, and the bars are easy to open should be frequently controlled. The size of the cage I have found no particular standard, only the more extensive the better cage for ferrets.

Air vents in the enclosure should be smooth. Sun, especially morning liari, balls can go into some areas of the cage. This light is important to warm, dry wet parts of the cage, kill bacteria and germs, as well as a useful source of ultraviolet light to synthesize vitamin D. When the tough get sunlight, the cage can be turned on artificial ultraviolet light for 10-12 hours each day.

Because ferrets like to sleep with a cloth-covered then give a thick towel as a place to smuggle her body. His bed mattresses can be of sawn timber or woolly carpet.

Places to eat and drink are placed in such a way so as not to disrupt the activities of ferrets, not littering the floor, and easily accessible. Such equipment should be easily cleaned and not allergic to ferrets that make glass or ceramic material shaped cup would be more suitable.

Ferret, let alone a young, very happy to infiltrate into the pipe or plastic hose. Therefore, prepare a plastic pipe or hose for such behavior can still be done.

Cat food manufactured well-liked ferrets. Dry food pellet form is better than the wet canned food. Dry foods can train gums, clean teeth, and not much left in the crevices of teeth. Food in the tooth gap is easy to invite flies and quickly decay. While the wet food very easily left in the tooth gap. Even the wet food fat content is too high and often contain additives that cause interference function of the organ.

Although it has benefits, it does not mean there is no dry food shortage. Dry foods contain vitamin B complex and vitamin C that has been damaged, even lost. To overcome this, into the dry food added to food additives. Additional food sources of animal protein in the form of meat, fish, or boiled eggs are given in turn. Meat and fish should be free of bones.

Additional food sources of vitamins and minerals in the form of fruits and vegetables. If fruit and vegetables is given, no longer need to be given extra vitamins and minerals. Additional vitamins and minerals needed only in special circumstances such as ferrets are pregnant, sick, or stressed.
