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 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. Thanks for this page! It made my search so much easier.

    FYI – I’ve called the Cumberland Vet Hospital and the Blair Animal Hospital as we are planning and getting ferrets and both of them informed me that the do not treat ferrets at this time.

  2. Hi Pascale
    Thanks for letting me know about Blair Animal Hospital and the Cumberland Vet Hospital – I have removed them from the site 🙁
    I updated that page in 2015 … I guess it might be an idea to check all the clinics to make sure they all treat ferrets again!
    Hope you found a decent vet 🙂

  3. The girls at Bracebridge Animal Hospital have been GREAT with our 3 boys! Highly recommended!

  4. Thanks so much for telling me about Bracebridge, Kris! I’ve added them to this page and said that they were recommended by a ferret owner! ?

    Great for other ferret owners to know which vets are proven to be good with ferrets! ❤️

  5. Hello,
    Wonderful to find your site! I live in Niagara Falls, Ontario. I wanted to add a ferret vet to your info page about ferrets vets worldwide..This one is an exotic vet and very good with ferrets. My fuzzy has been going to him and he has been great! He also vetted my last fuzzy years ago, even does house calls..and this vet answers his phone even after hours and on holidays, it forwards to him directly. It is called Carlton Animal Hospital, it is located in St. Catharines, Ontario..His son has now joined the team and is becoming an exotic vet as well…his wife runs the clinic..family business.
    Thank you for your great site!!! Wonderful!!

  6. Thank you so much for your very kind words about my site, Jenna! I’m so pleased that you found it helpful ?
    And many thanks for giving me the name of Dr Joseph’s clinic – I’ve added it to my Ontario list!
    Best wishes to you and hugs to your fuzzball/s ❤

  7. Hi Carol
    I put the month and year the page was updated at the bottom of the page. The Ontario vet page was last updated in May 2019.
    Unfortunately it’s almost a full-time job to keep all the vet pages updated and being in my 70s, I just haven’t got the stamina to do that every day ?
