Ferrets are fun, playful intelligent animals. They make fabulous pets. But unfortunately, they also can cause some odors in your home. This is often due to “musk” from their skins glands, which secrete oils. It is especially common for unaltered ferrets to produce these oils during breeding season. However, all ferrets also have other sacs they release when they feel frightened. Not all of these glands and sacs can be safely removed from ferrets, so you run the risk that they will be releasing these natural oils and musks in your home. Other factors, such as diet, can affect the way your ferret smells.
Although many of these factors can’t be changed, one option you can change is how you clean the air in your home. The CritterZone Air Naturalizer is a great option for ferret owners, because it doesn’t spray any chemicals into the air to temporarily mask the odors. Instead, it actually removes them from the air.
