- Ferret nail clippers: specially designed scissor style clipper with a notch at the bottom of the blade. Human nail clippers can be used as well if you don't have ferret nail clippers.
- A distraction: we recommend using Furo-Vite or Furo-Lax; both are not only a treat for your ferret but also good supplements as well.
- Something to stop bleeding: ferrets have a vain that grows partially through the nail; this area is called the quick. The quick is the small pink under layer of the nail, if nails are trimmed to short this could be painful and bleed. Keep styptic powder, a bar of soap or flour handy, just in case.
