We are happy to announce that the Ashbridge’s Bay Animal Hospital has adopted two ferrets to come live with us on a permanent basis – come stop by to welcome Princess and Captain Hook to the neighbourhood.  These two sweet and adorable ferrets found themselves homeless when their previous owner had to move out of the country and could not take them with him.  Dr. Cummings fell in love them immediately, and the rest is history.  Captain Hook is a male sable ferret, and Princess is a white female ferret – both are 1.5 years old.

The two ferrets have settled in very nicely.  They are housed in a large multi-level ferret home in reception, where they enjoy lazing about in their hammock or ‘pirate ship’ and greeting all the clients and pets that pass through our doors.  Their relaxed and easy-going temperaments are well-suited to making our animal hospital their home.  They enjoy at least two sessions of play time out of the cage daily, where they are allowed to romp around one of our exam rooms, and play with staff members.  Everyone here loves these little ones to pieces!

Princess and Captain Hook adore attention, and love to be held.  But it’s important to remember that all ferrets can nip – if you would like to visit with them, please ask one of our staff members to assist you.  We respect their right to privacy and rest, and do not wake them if they are happily napping in one of their beds.

Taking on a new pet is a big decision, and it is crucial for you to do your research before making such a big commitment.  For more information on ferrets as pets, please feel free to ask our knowledgeable staff members or visit our website back by the end of the week when we’ll be highlighting fun ferret facts.
