12 Nov 2014 How to Scruff a Ferret by HART Kahuna | posted in: Pet Training Videos | 30 Wesley models as I demonstrate how to properly scruff a ferret. Scruffing is useful to keep your ferret still while you clip nails, give meds, or even brush … Please follow and like us:
when i scruff my ferret it stays still for like 2sec then she just riggels
about so muych like am hrting her she is only 6 weeks should i not do it
at that age ???? plz help
Sometimes they can be hard to scruff if they are dehydrated or underweight
They best thing to feed them is the raw diet in addition to chicken hearts
and livers. Don’t feed them Marsh food, a good amount of their ingredients
are vegetables.The raw diet gives them the softest coats can double their
life expectancy also cuts down their smell and waste dramatically.
i tried this with my ferret and it feels like he doesn’t have enough skin
near his neck and he keeps squirming. i dont know what else to do to try
and cut his nails because his previous owners never cut them and they are
super long and i tried the ferret tone thing but that doesn’t work either
Do you have any ferret forum recommendations? I’m getting a pair after the
Okay so apparently YouTube did away with private messaging…..but if you
go to the Ferret.com forum and search “Bite Hold” the thread pops up with
pictures and everything. I’d do a video but my camera has been misplaced.
Sorry, I ran out of space. I feed my ferrets Wysong Ferret Epigen 90,
Natures Variety Instinct Duck, and Wellness Core. You want at least 4 meat
ingredients in the first 6. I also recommend buying Ferrets for Dummies and
joining a few ferret forums! I hope this helps 🙂
He’s a little over a year old
i cant get ahold on my ferret i try scruffing her she squirms out of it and
bites me i just got her from a neighbor who was neglecting her. perhaps i
should feed her more to get more of a grab? also i buyt marshals premium
ferret diet but it says to ad water like oatmeal whats a good ferret food
the ppl at petco dont know crap about ferrets nd my understanding is of a
Sometimes younger ferrets are harder to scruff. When Percy was a baby I had
a hard time scruffing him. Sometimes it’s a matter of getting a good grip.
Practice makes perfect LOL
I do that to my ferret but after like 7 seconds he still moves like crazy I
don’t know what I’m doing wrong
What are you using the scruffing for? To keep your ferret still, or to
teach them not to bite? There is another method called the bite hold. It’s
described in Ferrets for Dummies. The Ferret.com forum has a thread on the
bite hold, which is also useful for keeping them still (especially for
bathing!). If you message me, I’ll inbox you the link to the thread.
Aww 🙁 Sorry you can’t have one. Maybe when you move out on your own 🙂
Do you always have to be taking them to the vet? Or is it just like owning
Scruffing may not be the right technique for her. If you just got her,
maybe let her settle in and learn to trust you first. I know some people
have had good luck with the “bite hold”, if you google it, you should find
more info. Ferrets should have food available at all times, so feeding her
more wouldn’t really work LOL. You shouldn’t need to add water if she’s
over 12 weeks old. Check out the MoreDooks food chart- it compares kibbles
based on their ingredients.
I love you ferret! I have one and he is kind of a pain when it comes to
how much does a harness cost for a ferret please reply
thanx for the info & advice. im currently letting the lil ferret run around
the house so far found quit few thing i havto ferret proof
This is squishycraftyhamster.The youtub people changed my name.My ferret
Harrys fur is to tight to where I cant scruff him. If there is anything I
can do to help me scruff him please let me know.
i’m trying to learn to do that but it seems like there’s barely any skin to
grab and i feel like i’m hurting her…
Ferrets (and most other pets) should see the vet at least once a year for
health and wellness checks
My ferret doesn’t seem to have any loose skin? And when i pull it he just
squirms around and bites me more :/
It’s there promise! Sometimes you can only use thumb and forefinger. Wesley
has a nice scruff so I can use my whole hand :p
Some ferrets don’t have a lot of skin so it can take a bit more practice to
scruff them. I promise, as long as your aren’t digging your nails into him,
you aren’t hurting him. Scruffing is how mother ferrets carry and
discipline their young
I think I paid around $8 for a harness at Petco
I’m scruffing for nail trimming and checkups, as well as nip training also
using bitter vinegar spray. i’ll search the bit hold now, thanks!
One of my ferrets has the same color and markings under her eyes. <3
i love ferrets but my mom said i cant have one ):
DAW! CUTE! Your ferret has a lot more loose skin than mine does, she’s
still pretty young so maybe her skin will loosen back up as she gets older.
But, your ferret looks super young too.
I love Wesley’s jiggly belly :3
