Regular grooming will help keep your Ferret healthy, but it will also allow for a bond to be created between the owner and the pet. Your ferret should be groomed at least once a week with a soft brush or a grooming glove.
Ferrets also need baths because they have an odor caused by their scent glands. It is recommended that you bathe your ferret once a month using a deodorizing shampoo, but keep it away from your Ferrets eyes and genitals.
Cage & Litter box
Your Ferret's cage should be cleaned out at least once a week using a pet safe disinfectant. Ferrets can be trained to use a litter box in a couple of weeks. Ferrets are naturally attracted to smell, so place a few fresh droppings into the ferrets litter box to start off along with some cat litter. When the ferret wakes and after he eats you will need to put him into the litter box.
The litter box should be available at all times for the ferret and in a specific corner, and should be cleaned daily.
