Observations from Angela Lennox, DVM:

Want to share in some Ferret Fun next weekend?

 Come join us at the Annual Ferret 500 Saturday May 5th from 9:30 to 5:30 at the Marion County Fairgrounds!
 
Here is what the organizers say about the event:  “A ferret show is a lot of fun for participants and observers alike.  You can learn about interesting ferret coat colors, watch the ferret costume contest, find out the difference between jills and hobs, talk with ferret  enthusiasts  from around the United States, shop for fabulous ferret items and other supplies from the vendors.”
 
Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic’s own Dr. Taylor Lewis will present up to date information on ferret health issues and how to keep your ferret healthy and happy for as long as possible.  Come with your questions for the veterinarian.
 
And…if you want to try your hand at actually showing your ferret (including the ferret costume contest), go here.
Be aware all ferrets must have a health check and be up to date on vaccines, and a negative test for ADV. 
 
Admission/Donation is $5.00 for adults $2.00 for children 7 to 15 yrs. Under 7 free with paid adult.
 
Proceeds from the raffles help support the Five Points Ferret Refuge
