DISCLAIMER: The vets listed have either been recommended, or have advised me personally that they are happy to treat ferrets, or have mentioned that they treat ferrets, exotic pets &/or pocket pets on their website. However I have no firsthand knowledge of how experienced any of the vets are with ferrets.
It is up to you to make sure that you are happy with the treatment your ferret is getting from your vet. If you have any doubts at all, please think about getting a second opinion so that you know that your pet is getting the best possible treatment available.


While I have made every effort to ensure that the information contained on my page is free from error, I don’t warrant the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of this information.

  1. i have a ferret that has a large knob at the end of his tail. Started out BB size and has grown to peanut sz. I would like to have that removed. I live near Syracuse, New York. Thank You

  2. Hi Raymond
    It sounds like your ferret has a chordoma …


    I have gone through one section of my NY Ferret Vets and found that there is a ferret vet in Syracuse …


    I’ve updated that page today so if you can’t find someone in Syracuse, then please check all the other vets which you know are nearby. Apologies but I am in Western Australia so don’t really know the layout of cities in NY State ?
    Hugs to your little boy from their new buddies down under ❤
