Red light therapy, sometimes referred to as LLLT (or photomodulation), has been researched and studied for years and has become more and more popular for a variety of health and beauty benefits. However, it may come as a surprise to you that red light therapy has also been used for years by veterinarians across the world to treat dogs, horses, and just about any other kind of animal for a broad range of conditions.

Similar to the origins of light therapy for humans, low-level laser treatment (LLLT) was the initial method of treatment on animals. Recently, research has proven that LEDs are just as effective as lasers because of their ability to deliver the same wavelength and intensity of light photons. So, why does this matter? Well, laser equipment is incredibly expensive in comparison to LEDs – which are much more affordable for the average person. And because the efficacy of LEDs has been proven to be equivalent to lasers, red light therapy is now accessible via in-home use to a much broader audience.

How Does Red Light Therapy Work?
So, how does red light actually help animals? Very simply, it delivers an energy boost to the cells, which provides wide-ranging health benefits. Red and infrared light can penetrate your pet’s tissue, muscles, tendons and even bone to increase blood circulation, further promoting and boosting the healing process.

Now, if you’re more interested in learning about the specific health benefits of red light therapy, then go ahead and skip to the next paragraph. But if you’re a bit of a science nerd like me and you don’t mind a few hard-to-pronounce words, then let’s proceed. Just know that you’ve been warned.:-RRB-.

Red light promotes collagen production, which is vital to the healing process, by stimulating adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is often referred to as the molecular unit of currency due to its function in cellular energy transfer. ATP interacts with the mitochondria in cells to stimulate oxidative metabolism, which is essentially the conversion of oxygen and carbohydrates to energy. This entire process is sometimes called mitochondrial photostimulation. (1) This is a just a fancy way of saying that red light gives the body’s cells increased energy. Because of this, cells can perform their normal functions faster. In fact, some studies have demonstrated cellular functionality improving by up to 200%! (2 ).

Pretty cool, right! Well, let’s move and learn how this increased cellular activity can help improve the health of your pet.

What Conditions Does Red Light Therapy Help With?
Because of the way it energizes the cells, red light can help with a number of health conditions in animals, including the following:.

Joint pain.
Osteoarthritis.
Muscle soreness.
Wounds and injuries.
Rashes and infections.
Inflammation.

And there’s clinical data to prove it! In one study, horses that suffered from chronic back pain for years responded so well to red light therapy that in less than 3 months, over 70% were back to training and competing! (3) In addition, studies have also shown that horses treated with red light experience significantly faster tissue healing times.

As you know, arthritis is a common health challenge as animals age. But some breeds, such as hounds and bulldogs, are particularly susceptible to joint problems – even at younger ages. Because of the growing clinical evidence, red light therapy is becoming a more mainstream treatment for these types of issues. (5) One such study was conducted on dogs that had surgery to repair herniated disks. On average, the treated group recovered 4 times faster than the control group! (6 ).

It’s easy to see why red light therapy is quickly becoming a popular treatment because of its utility and safety. Loving pet owners now have an effective alternative to costly (and sometimes harmful) medications and/or painful surgeries. Just like anything, you need to do your research and select a device that is optimized for power output and treatment area. But if you choose wisely, you AND your beloved pet can start enjoying the healing power of red light in the comfort of your own home!

How Long Do Ferrets Live?

 

 

 

Q: What is the average ferret lifespan– how long do they live?

A: A ferrets typical lifespan is actually two-fold:

Together with the very early altering practices of the major breeding farms in this country virtually all ferrets bred here suffer from a number of illnesses (like adrenal illness) that shortens their lifespan …

Cancers are completely normal in ferrets in this country. Ferrets in countries that do not have breeding farms and do no practice early modifying tend to live longer, healthier, lives.

Very rarely do you hear of a ferret in the US living over 10-13 years. A lucky owner can get one, with good care, up to the age of 10 years old. That’s because our pets came originally from fur farms, not from hunting stock.

While ferrets are considered the third hottest pet in America, with the popularity of bad diet and lack of exercise, they are second class citizens next to dogs and cats. And yet, ferrets, when compared to cats, are true carnivores who suffer serious ill effects from inappropriate diet and care.

I have had 12 ferrets to date.  Three are still along for the ride with me. Of the 11  12 that have passed about the youngest was 2 years of age, the oldest has recently been 7-8 years old, and also I’ve lost a few at ages in the middle of that (4-6 years of age).

In the U.S.: about 6 to 8 years, with 7 to 8 years being the norm.
UK, European and also Australian ferrets: normally a 15 year life span, thanks to these ferrets having superior genetics.

Why The Different Lifespans?

How Can My Ferret Live Longer?

The book “ferret for dummies” happens to be a great place to start reading up on ferret ownership and lifespan.

I have had 20 ferrets to date. Please don’t make the mistake of getting ferrets before researching, just because you’ve had other pets it won’t prepare you for ferrets, TRUST me. 15 years of pet keeping certainly didn’t prepare me for my ferrets!

Very rarely do you hear of a ferret in the US living over 10-13 years. Together with the very early altering practices of the major breeding farms in this country virtually all ferrets bred here suffer from a number of illnesses (like adrenal illness) that shortens their lifespan …

I have two that are over nine years old. My first ferret died at age five, but only a result of a serious infection that wasn’t common. I live in the US, and yet only one of my ferrets actually have been Marshall’s.

I find the best way for ferrets to live longer is to feed a premium diet (Innova Evo, By Nature for kittens, and usual silver plus “duck soup” weekly), give them loads of exercise (free roam), and get vet care whenever it’s needed. All of mine are in peak condition and have never ever had problems with insulinoma or even adrenal.

They are typically great pets but take a lot work, much more than a dog or cat. Be certain that you know what you’re getting into. After that factor in the cost of brand new playthings, food, litter, vaccinations, and illness/emergency veterinarian visits for the next 7-9 years.

A lot of people say keeping a ferret alone will shorten it’s lifespan. The book “ferret for dummies” happens to be a great place to start reading up on ferret ownership and lifespan.

What Does the Color of My Ferret’s Poop Mean?

The Tall Corner Litter Pan features a quick release carabiner lock for secure attachment. Simply attach the litter pan to any wire cage and unclip for easy cleaning.

 

Ferret Poop Colors- What Does the Color of My Ferret’s Poop Mean?

Q: My ferret has been eating Fiesta Ferret food, and has some red parts in her poop. Once in a while she has red colored poop, but it’s not bloody and solid. Her poop has gone from dark brown, to a copper color.

Raw foods can also give some very colorful poop– bloodier meats usually produce darker, almost black poop; egg yolk can cause yellowish poop; liver causes black poop; beef can cause dark brown poop, etc. An odd colored poop here and there usually isn’t a major concern.

When To Worry?

You should worry if the stools suddenly turn pitch black (could be a sign of bleeding in the upper digestive tract, a sign of digested blood), or if the poop has actually visible blood in it or if it’s green or slimy (different ferret diseases can cause that).

Diet Changes

Yellow Colored Poop
Yellow, liquidy stool is just another sign that whatever he ate passed through his system quicker than normal. Ferrets can experience gastrointestinal upset just like people do.

Rarely, if it is bleeding from her butt it will be red, she cold have a prolapsed rectum, if she does you will need to soak her food in water before letting her eat it.

Dark Brown Poop
The poop usually comes out about the same color as the kibble when you feed a ferret kibble.

Red Colored Poop
Red and yellow in the poop is most likely food dye. Not to worry, would they put toxins in ferret food? Most likely not.

White Colored Poop
If his poop is white in color, it either means that his liver is not producing enough bile (indicating a liver problem) or that there is an obstruction in his bile ducts.

A sudden switch of your ferret’s diet can also cause discolored stools all the way to upset stomachs even vomiting and refusal to eat. It’s not unusual that he has seedy poo and loose stools if you changed his diet. It can take up to 2-3 weeks for his stomach to settle.

Its normal for the poop to be black after a change in diet. Wait a week for the poop color to return to normal if you just changed her food. As long as it’s not tarry looking and just looks like regular poop, then the color is just from the food you’re feeding.

Black Colored Poop
Black, tarry poop is actually digested blood and there’s some internal bleeding going on (usually a result of stomach ulcers). If you see black, sticky, or tarry poop that smells really bad, then a vet visit is a must.

Nutritional diarrhea will go away after the food that caused it is eliminated from his diet. Dairy products does it. Some ferrets will eat cheese, and green poop happens to them.

I had been feeding mine mainly EVO (a medium brown color) and their poop came out the same color as the EVO; I then switched to Nature’s Variety Instinct Rabbit formula, which is almost black and their poop starting coming out black.

Depending on what is in the actual ingredients in the food and depending on the possible dyes used they can easily change a ferrets poop different colors. If he’s acting normal, I would NOT freak out.

On raw diets, it’s natural for ferrets to have a dark, dark brown stool (these always look closer to ‘older’ poos because there isn’t a waste of nutrients, the ferret’s body absorbs almost everything in the food. Occasionally, smaller bits of bone will be visible in stool.

Green Colored Poop
Green poop in ferrets is most likely ECE, also known as “green slime disease.” Signs of ECE: watery bright green diarrhea (but can be other shades of yellow or green), vomiting, lethargy, and sometimes refusal to drink or eat.

For ECE: stool can be liquidy and yellow, but it is also usually ‘seedy’ or looks like it has birdseed in it. Get your ferret to the vet.

And it is a virus, so you might want to isolate him/her from the rest of your ferrets (if you have more than one), but they could already have it.

Because it is bile that gives poop its normal brownish color, this connection is made. In the absence of bile, poop is white. See a Vet if you see white poop in the litter box.

Green slime can also be nutritional diarrhea, and usually occurs when the ferret has an upset stomach. It just shows that something has irratatied his gut lining.

“Seedy” Poop

Seedy poop in ferrets is a sign of undigested protein. It is also a sign of food passing too quickly through his digestive track (this could be from a temporary gastrointestinal upset, from a chronic condition like IBD, or even ECE).

Generally, seedy or “birdseed” looking poo isn’t a major concern. If it is continual then it can present a problem (because the ferret’s body is unable to absorb nutrients, so it basically starves itself).

“Grainy” poop

The “grains” are usually undigested fat and starch complexes. You might think about stopping the dry food and putting it on a diet which is easily digestible and bland if your ferret has grainy poop.

Liquid Poop

Lots of things can make the poop runny and soft, like a change in diet, excess water drinking, stress, etc

. If a ferret is constantly having soft runny poop it can lead to a prolapsed rectum so if the poop is runny for too long take a look at the ferrets anus just to make sure they are not having any discomfort (the rectum will stick out).

Bulking Up Runny Ferret Stools

You can give 2 doses a day, until he gets better, then give one dose a day for a bit. After that, you can move to a couple times a week. Since I feed them a raw diet, I don’t worry about the fiber, since their diet is devoid of it except for the pumpkin.

My oldest girl is prone to diarrhea and ulcers, and the pumpkin works wonders in stabilizing poo, along with increased bone consumption (it will firm them and also help with constipation [As get out small foreign bodies].

What I’ve found is that 1 TBS of canned PURE pumpkin (either plain or mixed with duck soup) does wonders for ferrets with sensitive stomachs.

What Should I Feed My Ferret for Healthy Poops?

I noticed that since I feed mostly Innova, my ferrets eat less often and smaller amounts AND they poop less. They’re poops are a little softer however, which can make them harder to clean off of carpets if your ferret isn’t completely litter box trained.

My ferrets get three different types of food. soft chewy 8 in 1 (my girl loves the soft stuff) or the crunchy w/ 45% Zupreem and Innova EVO.

When choosing a food look for high protein content and your first four ingredients should contain some sort of meat.

What Does a Healthy Ferret Poop Look Like?

A healthy ferret poop should pretty much resemble a warm tootsie roll. Rolled it back and forth in your hands and made little coils out of it you would have just made your own perfect ferret poop if you took a tootsie roll. A pencil-thin poop could also indicate a blockage.

As long as it’s not tarry looking and just looks like regular poop, then the color is just from the food you’re feeding.

10 Ferret Hacks on Keeping a Ferret

Ferrets are strict carnivores and require meat-based protein. Marshall premium ferret diet and bandit treats combine the freshest meat ingredients with a unique low-temperature process that makes them the best ferret food and treats available.

Here’s are 10 ferret hacks on how to keeping a ferret as a pet. 

What is it like to keep a ferret as a pet? There are several things you should know ferrets before keeping them as pets.

Let’s start with a few facts about ferrets. These are fun and interesting facts about ferrets that you might like to know.

1. Weasel War Dance– When ferrets are excited or feeling full of energy, they’ll perform a wild dance known as the weasel war dance. The ferret does this to expend energy and assert its dominance.

2. High maintenance– Ferrets are more high maintenance than other common household pets such as dogs and cat. Because they’re more prone to medical conditions and they need more supplies and medical care, this is.

3. Legality– Did you know that in some places, ferrets are illegal to own? Check here for a list of states where ferret ownership is not allowed.

4. Rodents– Ferrets often get confused with rodents like hamsters and the guinea pig. In fact, ferrets come from a different species known as Mustelidae.

5. Hoarders– One of the most distinctive qualities of ferrets is that they love to hoard. They might hoard a bunch of stuff in your house if you don’t keep a check on them!

6. Ferocious little animals– Ferrets are some of the most ferocious pets you can keep. Don’t worry, they’re not dangerous, but they will try to assert their dominance and even try to bite if they’re upset.

7. Handymen– Because of their agility and their shape/size, ferrets have been used to run the wire through small holes in spaces that can’t normally be reached. This made them very useful for engineering and mechanical work.

8. Objects of artistic beauty– During Medieval Europe, ferrets were a common subject of artistic paintings. Many popular painters, including Leonardo Da Vinci, drew portraits of ferrets.l

9. Domestication– Ferrets have a history of being domesticated and being used for hunting wild animals. Because of how easily they could crawl down rabbit holes, they were particularly used for hunting rabbits.

10. Lifespan– Ferrets usually have a lifespan of between 7 and 10 years. This is somewhat high for a small animal, which is why many people like ferrets as pets: because they tend to stick around for a while.

They tend to wreck things around the house when ferrets become angry or agitated. They might wildly dance, bite, or break things. That’s why it’s important to keep them satisfied and cater to their needs.

Owning a ferret, like with most other animals, can lead to an increase in your medical bills. A ferret, especially, needs a good amount of medical care. A ferret may feel the need to go to the vet, and it’s a good idea to take it there.

Do ferrets make good pets?
The bottom line is– yes, ferrets make great pets! All these qualities make them a delight for people to be around. Plus, a group of ferrets is called a business, that’s pretty awesome.

There are several things you should know ferrets before keeping them as pets. Ferocious little animals– Ferrets are some of the most ferocious pets you can keep. Maybe other first-time ferret owners have a different experience though– I’ve heard many people tell me about how hectic and strange it can be to take care of a ferret for the first time. The bottom line is– yes, ferrets make great pets! A ferret owner might find themselves at times exhausted with a ferret.

A ferret owner might find themselves at times exhausted with a ferret. For many people, this is what makes having a ferret so much fun. Whenever I wanna take some time off, one thing I love to do is take my ferret to the beach and relax!

Owning a ferret

What is owning a ferret-like?
It was an Angora ferret kit, and it was the most interesting animal I had ever seen. Maybe other first-time ferret owners have a different experience though– I’ve heard many people tell me about how hectic and strange it can be to take care of a ferret for the first time. I don’t know what it is about the cage but ferrets are confused about what to do with it.

Ferrets make good pets for anyone looking for a fun-loving and unique animal who doesn’t mind being a little high maintenance.

Ferrets are also pretty high maintenance, as mentioned before. As pets, you should expect to take them to the vet every now and then. Household ferrets are neutered so you shouldn’t expect to get too strong a smell from them.

The Argument About Ferret Health

Marshall Pet Products has been focusing on the health and wellness of dogs and small animals for years. Providing quality, highly nutritious pet treats and small animal foods, Don’t give your pet anything less. Use Marshall.

The Argument About Ferret Health

Ferrets are peculiar in regards to eating. When you check at the ferret, you can observe how they’re closely related to these creatures rather than the rodents they are frequently compared to. Actually, gastrointestinal blockages are among the key reasons for premature ferret death.

There are almost no details on what you need to know about ferret’s health complications, what you need to know about, and especially what things to do in a crisis! In the very long run, it’s m to provide your ferret with different yet healthy forms of food. If you like to go the simple route it is possible to discover certain pet superstores with real ferret food.”

Ferret Health

Understanding Ferret Health

A Ferret Health Insurance can be convenient in managing such unforeseen casualties. Sadly, there are much too many individuals who don’t take this into consideration and ferret abandonment has eventually become a legitimate concern. It then goes without saying that herbal cures for ferrets could be required based on the diet.

Ferrets could be entertaining too, and an excellent pet. Ideally ferrets should be provided a bath once per month. Finally, ferret weight loss can happen once your pets aren’t treated or fed properly. Again, ferrets aren’t human. Unfortunately, ferrets really have strong scent glands and at times the odor might be unpleasant. Water is likewise an essential element in a ferrets nutrition.

Treating Adrenal Disease in Ferrets

There are many alternatives for treating adrenal disease in ferrets. Most will agree that operation is the greatest choice; yet, operation isn’t possible in all instances. The ferret could possibly be a high surgical or anesthetic risk, or the owner just might not possess the funds. Luckily, there are many non-surgical alternatives and this post will discuss one of these choices – the usage of melatonin for both the treatment of adrenal disorder as well as the likelihood of utilizing it as a preventative measure.

Lupron Depot is another choice, and while it works fantastically (in this writer’s experience) it might be cost prohibitive in case your veterinarian will not use Lupron often and can distribute the cost over many customers. Using Lupron Depot is discussed in detail in a number of areas on this particular web site. Conversely, light inhibits the release of melatonin. Based on Dr. Jerry Murray, “Melatonin directly and indirectly activates the mating season (spring/summer) during the ‘long day’ intervals, and it terminates the mating season (autumn/winter) during the ‘short day’ intervals. In the autumn/winter there’s released in the spring/summer, and more melatonin discharged during the dark time. Along with the mating season, the increased melatonin causes the winter pelt to enter as well as the winter weight gain. Similarly the low amounts cause the summer pelt to enter as well as the summer weight loss.” It is not unlikely that the unusual lighting to could be at least partly accountable for the high prevalence of adrenal disorder.

Their in-house surroundings is light during daytime hours and we add many hours of artificial light in addition to that during the evening hours. Just how can melatonin fight the effects of adrenal disorder? Vulva swelling in females, hair loss, prostate swelling in men and aggressive or sexual behavior; more or any one of these symptoms might show up. The consequences can oftentimes be spectacular if this continuous stimulus may be discontinued. Hair grows, prostate swelling resolution or the vulva, and except in some instances of carcinoma, the adrenal glands may get bigger and in a few cases may reduce in size.

TREATMENT PROTOCOL A recommended dosage is 1 milligram of melatonin given around 7-9 hours after dawn. In instances where there isn’t any result to this degree of melatonin, up to 3 milligrams could be given. The single side effects have been sleepiness for the first 3-5 days when starting this treatment and weight gain.
