Fall brings many things including pet hair. Most pets shed their summer coat in lieu of getting a nice thick winter coat, so it's important to brush them as needed and get rid of the fur blowing around their home and yours. Excess fur can cause problems for all pets if they ingest it, like hairballs and blockages. Get yourself a good pet brush and a supplement such as Lax to help smooth digestion. Fall also means cooler temperatures - most pets appreciate this compared to the hot, humid days of summer, but this season brings other things that we have to be aware of, like dry skin and colds! If you notice your ferret's coat becoming dry, it could mean he is not getting enough fatty acids in his diet. Be sure to feed him a high protein diet such as Marshall Select and have some Furotone on hand just in case.
