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.

  1. I recently called a few vets in my city to find a vet for my ferrets. I was informed by both Country Club Animal Clinic and Crossroads Animal Clinic in El Paso TX that they no longer see ferrets.

    I have, on the other hand, found an amazing ferret vet here in El Paso. They have the clinic on Mesa Street, but also a mobile vet, so don’t be confused by the name. Dr. Silpa specifically was very knowledgeable and excellent with my three.

    Mesa Veterinary Clinic
    5355 N Mesa St, El Paso, TX 79912
    (915) 584-4491

  2. Hi Courtney
    Thanks so very much for letting me know about the vet clinics which no longer see ferrets, and also about Dr Silpa and the Mesa Vet Clinic!
    I’ve made the necessary changes to the page and am most grateful to you for taking the trouble to let me know.?
    It will certainly help other ferret owners in El Paso ❤

  3. Does anyone know if any vets in the Big Bend area (specifically Fort Davis, Alpine, Marfa, etc.) take care of ferrets?

  4. Sherry – is Farmers Branch in the area you mentioned? Why I ask is because Dr Jerry Murray is a very well known ferret vet so I would recommend going to him.

  5. Hi Kami
    I’ve googled the question and I’m afraid I’ve come up blank ?
    Are there any towns that are listed which are close by to the places you named?
    Perhaps someone will be able to help when they see your question! Fingers crossed ?

  6. Kami,
    I know I am a little late at responding and hopefully you found someone by now. At Alpine Veterinary Hospital, there is a vet tech named Kim Matthews and she has a ferret according to her bio. Maybe call them and see if they can point you to a vet who sees ferrets in your area.

  7. Hi! I was browsing around trying to see if Dr. Eddy who used to be in Grand Prairie was listed on this site. She bought her own clinic several years back. She sees ferrets and is in Hickory Creek, TX! Her clinic is called Corinth Vet Clinic.

  8. Hi Rachel
    Many thanks for letting me know about Dr Eddy. I’ve added the Corinth Vet Clinic to the page and I’m sure a lot of ferret owners will be happy to know that there’s a ferret vet in Hickory Creek! ?

  9. I rescued a ferret. I was told he is 3 to 5 years old. His belly seems to be bloated with a hard knot in the lower abdomen. He’s very fatigue. He’ll walk a few steps or more and then lay down on his belly. I have seen we’re vet bills for ferrets can be very costly. I do not qualify for carecredit. I really don’t want to give up on him or have to rehome him. My fiance and I have grown very attached to him. Any advise or comments would be greatly appreciated.

  10. Hi Chelsey
    I’m sorry but it really sounds like you need to take him to a ferret vet as he might have a cancerous growth in his belly and I wouldn’t be able to give you any advice or suggestions if that were the case ?
    You could try him on a daily smoothie to see if you can get his immune system stronger but you would have to make sure you get him the best supplements and not cheap ones from a place like Walmart. This is my recipe for a smoothie with astaxanthin, which I have been giving my guys every day for quite a long time.
    * 150ml (roughly) of NO LACTOSE milk (please don’t buy Whiskas Pet Milk as that has malt in it and can cause insulinoma over time!)
    * 1 egg yolk
    * 1 capsule Hawaiian Astaxanthin (prick the capsule on an upside down tack and squeeze the liquid into the jar)
    Mix with an electric beater and serve at room temperature.
    Oh – and don’t panic if his poop is red the next day as it’s just caused by the astaxanthin in his system, not blood!!! ?
    I get my supplements from the Aussie branch of iHerb.com – they have fair prices and great customer service.
    I hope he’ll enjoy the smoothie and that it will pick him up but I would strongly suggest that you try to save up your dollars to get him to see a vet and find out what his problem is.
    Hugs to your poor little man from his new buddy down under ❤

  11. I just received an email that I can forward if needed. I use Dr. Wendy Dearixon in Dallas and she is retiring effective tomorrow (January 1, 2022). I am actually on here looking for a new ferret vet!

  12. Thanks for telling me about Dr Dearixon, Rachel! I’ve removed her name from the clinic but do you know if they’re going to replace her with a ferret vet or will they stop treating ferrets?

  13. Dr. Kerry Kores has seen my ferrets before and she is pretty good, but I don’t know if she will continue to see them. I will check with the clinic on Monday and find out.

  14. There is two other vets besides Dr. Kores but they are new and I don’t know much about them. I will find out more next week

  15. Terrific! Thanks so much for your help, Rachel! I really appreciate it ?

  16. I called Vickery Place and the receptionist did say they are going to continue to see ferrets. She just didn’t give me names…

  17. Thanks so much for checking that for me, Rachel. I shall just leave the clinic there without a doctor’s name, unless they decided to add it to their website ?
    Take care and stay healthy & happy, same with your ferret/s! ❤
