TY - JOUR. T1 - Marburg and Ravn Viruses Fail to Cause Disease in the Domestic Ferret (Mustela putorius furo). AU - Cross, Robert. AU - Mire, Chad. AU - Agans, Krystle N.. AU - Borisevich, Viktoriya. AU - Fenton, Karla A.. AU - Geisbert, Thomas. PY - 2018/11/22. Y1 - 2018/11/22. N2 - The domestic ferret was recently described as a uniformly lethal model for 3 species of Ebolavirus. More importantly, this new model utilizes nonadapted wild-type Ebolaviruses. Here, in a proof-of-concept study, we infected ferrets with different variants of the closely related Marburg and Ravn viruses using different doses and routes of exposure. Although ferrets produced a neutralizing humoral response to challenge, we did not observe disease or viremia in any animal. The lack of disease in ferrets underscores the notion that differential mechanisms to immunity among filoviruses exist and may provide a model to better understand how differences contribute to disease..

This photo was taken at Black-Footed Ferret Recovery Program in Colorado. The black-footed ferret is considered to be the rarest mammal in North America. In 1988, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service developed the "Black-footed Ferret Recovery Plan" which emphasized species preservation through natural breeding, development of assisted reproductive technology, and establishment of multiple reintroduction sites. The objective of the captive breeding program was to maintain 240 ferrets (90 males, 150 females) of prime breeding age (1-3 years old) in captivity, and subdivide the captive populaton into different locations in order to avoid catastrophic loss at a single facility. A high priority is placed on protecting genetic diversity so the "Black-footed Ferret Genome Resource Bank" was established. This is a frozen repository of sperm from the most genetically valuable males. Ferrets were released back into the wild in Wyoming in 1991, in South Dakota and Montana in 1994, and in Arizona in 1998. The ...

Ferrets are susceptible to many viruses that can cause infections in the respiratory system. The human influenza virus is the most common virus involved in ferret respiratory infections.. Ferrets are quite susceptible to most human influenza viruses, including the seasonal type A, the new 2009 H1N1 flu (swine) and the avian flu. Because ferrets can get the human flu and their lungs are similar to humans, ferrets are frequently used in human flu research. Ferrets can get the flu from people who have the flu or from other ferrets that have the flu. In a very recent case, a pet ferret in the Portland, Oregon, area got the swine flu from its owner. Thus, it is very important to avoid playing with or handling your ferret if you have the flu.. Most seasonal type A flu cases are mild in adult ferrets, but type A flu may cause more serious illness in young or old ferrets. H1N1 (swine) flu and avian flu can cause mild to fatal disease in ferrets regardless of age.. Ferrets with the flu usually have a ...

Why not Carrots For ferrets?. For one, they are very little nutritional value to ferrets, and two ferrets can not digest them properly, because there lack the organs to do so. Peas, carrots - any vegetable or fruit for that matter - has ZERO nutritional value for ferrets.. Even just as treats, do not feed them to your ferret, because they can not digest it. So no, dont feed your ferret lettuce, vegetables or carrots, they probably wont eat it, even if you tried to feed it to them. Both can be toxic to ferrets, like dogs and cats.. Too be on the safe dont give your ferret anything if it is not specified for ferrets. Currently, I feed my ferret mix Totally Ferret Baby, Totally Ferret Turkey, Lamb, and Vension. What should Ferrets Eat?. In nature, ferrets eat insects, worms, and probably whatever has been left behind by other omnivores.. Yes, ferrets on a natural diet usually eat mice and chicken. If you cook chicken, bones can be brought to the ferrets to eat. Some people feed a whole chicken ...
SELIGMAN, Ariz. - The Arizona Game and Fish Department is seeking volunteers to assist with spot-lighting efforts to help document the population of endangered black-footed ferrets in Aubrey Valley and on the Double O Ranch near Seligman. As part of the recovery effort, the department has scheduled two spring spotlighting projects - March 9-12 and April 6-9. The spotlighting method involves using high-powered lights to locate and identify black-footed ferrets. Volunteers must have the ability to stay attentive from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. while spotlighting for black-footed ferrets and use, or learn how to use, a Global Positioning System (GPS). Volunteers can sign up by e-mailing [email protected] - with "spring spotlighting" in the subject line, by March 3 for next months project and by March 30 for the later opportunity. Volunteers are reminded to include their full name, a contact phone number, month(s) and night(s) available to spotlight and full names of others who also will be attending. ...
The ferret personality Ferrets are very social animals and need several hours of human interaction per day. They also benefit when part of a multiple ferret household and have other ferrets to mingle with. Ferrets can get along with other pets, such as cats or dogs, when raised alongside them; however, their patience with other pets is usually very short, so a bothersome pet may irritate a ferret. When not given enough attention, a pet ferret can get depressed, so be sure that you have enough time to dedicate to a ferret before purchasing one. Aside from enjoying attention, ferrets can be very sneaky and devious. They love to slide along walls and creep around, getting into things or sneaking under furniture. Often, pet owners lose ferrets when they scurry out front doors that were mistakenly left open, or ferrets get out of their enclosures in similar ways. Be sure to never stand with a door open while a ferret is loose in your house. How is a ferret groomed? Bathing a ferret is similar to ...
Ferrets are very dependent upon their human companions for survival. Because ferrets require continuous care and supervision, potential owners should evaluate their ability to commit. The commitment is long term since the lifespan of ferrets is six to 10 years.. Ferrets may not be the best pet for families with small children. Although ferrets are very social animals, they may bite or nip if mishandled. Never leave a ferret and a small child alone together. Ferrets generally get along with dogs and cats if they are introduced carefully, but they should not interact with birds, rodents, or small reptiles.. When selecting a ferret from a shelter, a pet store or a breeder, choose one that is bright-eyed and alert. The presence of crusty eyes or nasal discharge that is full of mucus indicate illness. If you handle a sick ferret, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly so as not to infect yourself or the next batch of animals.. Whether you select a male ferret, known as a hob, or a female, known as a ...
Ferret safe vegetables include mushrooms, potatoes, beans, squash, cauliflower, peppers (seeds removed), carrots, tomato salsa, and broccoli.. NOTE: Use ferret pellets, which can be purchased in pet shops to ensure you meet your ferrets nutritional needs. However, from time to time to give your ferret assorted bird seed, rolled oats, sunflower seeds (some ferrets love them …) and ready-to-eat corn and peas from the freezer, as a treat.. High Vitamin C Food for ferrets. Ferrets can not make their own vitamin C. If your ferret belonged to a previous owner, it probably lacks vitamin C, because it probably has not received vegetables, or received pellets ferrets that do not have extra vitamin c. Give the ferrets 1/8 green pepper every day, along with other vegetables to make sure it gets enough vitamin C. This prevents scurvy in ferrets.. How often can Ferrets eat vegetables?. Ferrets can eat cooked carrots and other soft vegetables, but only a little. My ferret eats a carrot, but not all the ...
The Natural Areas Department hopes to reintroduce the black-footed ferret in September or October to Soapstone Prairie, which spans 22,000 acres 20 miles north of Fort Collins and has been managed by the city since 2005. Soapstone Prairie and Meadow Springs Ranch, which is 26,000 acres, together support 3,600 acres of black-tailed prairie dogs. Black-footed ferrets are native to the shortgrass prairie but became endangered through habitat conversion, poisoning and the sylvatic plague, which affects both the ferret and prairie dogs, Figgs said.. The Natural Areas Department manages the prairie dog populations on both sites, controlling sylvatic plaque that, on rare occasions, can be transmitted to humans through fleas, Figgs said. "The plague is present at times, then its not," he said. "Large die-off events will occur from time to time and reduce the number of prairie dog colonies.". One incident in 2007 to 2008 reduced the colonies from 4,000 acres to 200 to 500 acres, Figgs said. ...
Contact: WildEarth Guardians DENVER - Based on a decision made public late last week, Colorados endangered black-footed ferrets will be protected from oil and gas drilling - for now. The Bureau of Land Managements (BLM) own internal review board, the Interior Board of Land Appeals (IBLA), overturned the BLMs May 2006 sale of oil and gas drilling leases in an area where endangered black-footed ferrets have been reintroduced in Colorado.. Despite the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) urging that ferret habitat be excluded from the lease sale, the BLM went ahead and sold drilling leases to the highest bidder. The ferrets, considered North Americas most endangered species, were reintroduced to Colorado in 2001 and an active program to recover populations to self-sustaining levels is underway.. The IBLA found that the BLM broke the law by selling the leases "without any record evidence that it ever responded to or even considered FWSs views." The board found the action illegal because "an ...
Ferrets are great fun and hugely rewarding, but owning one can also be costly and time-consuming. Are you ready to take on the responsibility? Check out this list of things you need to know before getting a ferret.. 1. A ferret is for life. Owning a ferret is a lifetime commitment. Ferret develop deep bonds with you and your family. Any change in ownership can be extremely traumatic, so you should be prepared for the responsibility involved in ferret ownership. Ferret owners need to be able to provide shelter, food, water, medical care, and love and attention.. 2. Owning a ferret can be expensive. Before owning a ferret you need to considerable financial commitment. Whether you get one or two ferrets, you will need a cage, bedding, bowls, and toys. The average care for one ferret, which includes supplies, food, and basic vet care it cost you around $700 - $1000 per year.. 3. Buy your ferret accessories in advance. Before you take your new ferret home, make sure you have all the basic supplies. ...
The black-footed ferret is solitary, except when breeding or raising litters.[8][9] It is nocturnal[8][19] and primarily hunts for sleeping prairie dogs in their burrows.[20] It is most active above ground from dusk to midnight and 4 am to mid-morning.[11] Aboveground activity is greatest during late summer and early autumn when juveniles become independent.[11] Climate generally does not limit black-footed ferret activity,[9][11] but it may remain inactive inside burrows for up to 6 days at a time during winter.[21]. Female black-footed ferrets have smaller home ranges than males. Home ranges of males may sometimes include the home ranges of several females.[9] Adult females usually occupy the same territory every year. A female that was tracked from December to March occupied 39.5 acres (16 ha). Her territory was overlapped by a resident male that occupied 337.5 acres (137 ha) during the same period. The average density of black-footed ferrets near Meeteetse, Wyoming, is estimated at one ...

In common with most domestic animals, the original reason for ferrets being domesticated by human beings is uncertain, but it may have involved hunting. According to phylogenetic studies, the ferret was domesticated from the European polecat (Mustela putorius), and likely descends from a North African lineage of the species.[25] Analysis of mitochondrial DNA suggests that ferrets were domesticated around 2,500 years ago. It has been claimed that the ancient Egyptians were the first to domesticate ferrets, but as no mummified remains of a ferret have yet been found, nor any hieroglyph of a ferret, and no polecat now occurs wild in the area, that idea seems unlikely.[26]. Ferrets were probably used by the Romans for hunting.[27][28]. Colonies of feral ferrets have established themselves in areas where there is no competition from similarly sized predators, such as in the Shetland Islands and in remote regions in New Zealand. Where ferrets coexist with polecats, hybridization is common. It has been ...

CNF: The essay is about the black-footed ferret, an endangered species. What got you interested in the black-footed ferret, particularly? Did you know early in your work that you were going to write about them, or did the desire to write about them develop the longer you worked with them?. Lenhart: In 2011, I moved to Tucson to study writing. At the time, I was working towards a novel and had little interest in creative nonfiction or black-footed ferrets. My partner at the time, though, had three domestic ferrets of the charismatic pet-store variety. For a few months, it seemed that I couldnt write a sentence without being distracted by ferret thoughts. After one of our ferrets died of pancreatic failure, my partner moved to Nevada for an internship in biological conservation. I was left to care for the ferrets. Feed them. Shampoo them. Block them from crawling up the fireplace. Mist their faces when the swamp cooler didnt cool. Make sure the appropriate holiday-themed hammock was clipped to ...
The common name "ferret" includes any of a group of animals in the Weasel family, including the Black Footed Ferret of North America, and the European Polecat. (Domestic ferrets are thought to be descendants of the Polecat.). Ferrets are carnivorous, and ferocious hunters. As such, they definitely speak to the Warrior within us - and they have lessons to offer both for when our Warrior energy needs some encouragement, and for times when it might be coming on a bit too strong.. In English, to "ferret something out" means to track down something hidden and bring it to light. A ferrets long, low body allows it to go down into the burrows of its prey (such as rabbits or prairie dogs), where it often takes its sleeping prey by surprise. Ferret can help you uncover hidden blocks and energies in your own psyche - sometimes ones that have been buried for a long time. It takes courage to work with Ferret energy, though, because it will ask you to hold yourself to your own truth.. Ferrets and weasels ...

With female ferrets subjected to different degrees of intensity of light irradiation as measured by placing them at different distances from a 1000 W. lamp, the acceleration of the oestrous cycle, generally speaking, was correlated with the degree of intensity. There were, however, individual exceptions. The distances between the ferrets and the lamp varied from 1 to 22 ft.. Female ferrets subjected to ultra-violet irradiation usually remained on heat until much later in the year than those submitted to light irradiation. With male ferrets ultra-violet irradiation caused descent of the testes in December and the testes remained descended until the autumn.. Irradiated female ferrets (both with light and ultra-violet rays) went off heat shortly after being put with males and probably as a result of copulation (which, however, was not always observed), but pregnancy did not supervene. This may have been due to the animals not being in a state for ovulation.. Feeding vitamin D to anoestrous ferrets ...
Author: Benischek Rita L, Year: 2009, Abstract: Three illnesses appear commonly in pet ferrets: cardiomyopathies, insulinoma, and adrenal associated endocrinopathy. Treatment for dilated cardiomyopathy include ACE inhibitors, and furosemide is recommended for the treatment for long-term diuresis treatment of congestive heart failure. Insulinoma, cancer of the pancreas, is the most common neoplasm of the American ferret, oftentimes treated by surgically excising the cancerous lobes, optionally can be treated with steroids that suppress insulin

Aplastic anemia is a condition in which the bone marrow is completely suppressed, resulting in a shutdown in production of new red blood cells. Bone marrow suppression will also result in a shutdown in production of white blood cells and platelets. The condition occurs in female ferrets that are not spayed and not bred when they are "in heat". Sexually mature female ferrets that are not bred will stay in heat indefinitely. While in heat, the ferrets estrogen levels remain high. High doses of estrogen suppress bone marrow function. This condition is rarely seen now, due to early (pre-purchase) spaying of female ferrets.. Signs of aplastic anemia include lethargy and pale mucous membranes, most readily observed by looking at the gums. When the intact female ferret is examined, her vulva will usually be found to be swollen and enlarged, indicating persistent estrus or heat.. Initial treatment to stabilize the ferret includes hormonal therapy to bring the ferret out of heat, antibiotics, iron, and ...
As we continued to release the ferrets, the sun set and we were in complete darkness. Most ferret releases go quickly - but this one took time. One tricky ferret had zoomed out of his crate and would not stay in his chosen hole. He popped in and out, again and again. Then he decided to wander. Very soon the prairie would be roaming ground for coyotes, badgers and other predators of black-footed ferrets. We all cheered the ferret on so that he would stay in his hole.. I helped release the final ferret with John. She went right into her new hole and was a nice cap to our night. I was grateful for the opportunity and will remember it forever.. Favorite moments from the release? Both John and Guy treasured seeing our host family release their first ferrets and watching them make the connection as to why this event was so important. These connections are paramount for conservation to succeed.. By the end of the night, 13 of us released 16 ferrets onto the Cathcart Ranch. This was the first time ...

Ferret Care Guide General information :. The average lifetime of a ferret is form 6 to 8 years. The grown-up female weighs about 800 grams and male is about 1.2 kg. The ferrets come in various colours, but most of them are brown, gray and black. And the color is darker on the paws and tail. Maintenance at home :. Ferrets have a strong and playful character. They are very sociable and like to be in the centre of attraction. Ferrets like twilight and are the most active after sunset and before sunrise.They sleep from eighteen to twenty hours of the day and wake up twice a day to eat, relieve themselves and play.. Ferret Care Maintenance of the ferret is possible in the flat in different ways : free maintenance, semi-free maintenance and in a cage. In any case, youll need the cage, even if you want your pet rans freely everywhere in the home.

Ferrets ancestors were den animals, so the home you create should be like a den, too. Use a wire cage thats at least 18 inches long, 18 inches deep, and 30 inches wide. Many ferrets prefer bi-level cages that feature stairs or ramps that ferrets can climb, and shelves or hammocks where ferrets can perch. Avoid aquariums, which provide poor ventilation. Because ferrets are accomplished escape artists, the cage should feature a secure latch and openings no larger than one inch by two inches. Since wire flooring is uncomfortable to a ferrets feet, place linoleum tiles on the floor or line the cage bottom with soft material such as washable carpet. Not all materials will work, however: wood flooring is difficult to disinfect, newspaper will blacken a ferrets feet, and cedar chips hold in bad odors and may even cause respiratory problems. Place the cage away from direct sunlight, in a cool, shaded area where temperatures range between 55 and 70 degrees. Clean bedding with a mild detergent and hot ...
The Canterbury Vet Clinic, one of Melbournes leading ferret vets, says there has been a steady increase in the number of ferrets being presented for treatment. And the Ferret Society has had a surge of interest from people keen to adopt.. Like many ferret owners, Ms Smith had previously kept more traditional pets (she had a dog when she lived in Queensland) before falling for the charms of ferrets. Now she has three ferrets: Angel, aged four, and Jasper and Sonny, who are nearly one.. Despite their small size, ferrets are high maintenance and require devoted owners who are prepared to cope with the havoc the excitable creatures can wreak. ...

The black-footed ferret is the rarest mammal on the continent, but conservation efforts are making strides in preventing it from disappearing altogether. Thats what people thought had happened 35... Science News Summaries. | Newser
The City of Fort Collins Natural Areas and Utilities reintroduced endangered black-footed ferrets to Soapstone Prairie Natural Area, and Meadow Springs Ranch, their native home in September, 2014.
Get in tune with nature, and read a bit about an endangered species of animal, the Black-footed Ferret. Your child can color an illustration as he reads.
Ferrets are lively and amusing pets, but like most animals, they can carry diseases and pose hazards to people who handle them. Ferrets can carry bacteria and parasites such as Campylobacter, Salmonella, Giardia and Cryptosporidia in their intestinal tract and spread them to people cleaning their cages and litter boxes. Ferrets can also be carriers of ringworm fungus, fleas and scabies mites that can infect their handlers. Because of their inquisitive nature, ferrets can occasionally bite people, especially children who make sudden moves. Ferrets can be vaccinated against rabies, and rabies vaccinations are required for ferrets in King County beginning at four months of age. Rabies immunization must then be maintained with booster shots for the life of the animal.. ...
Signs of bad reactions are diarrhoea, vomiting and at worst, seizures. If your ferret has even had a bad reaction to a vaccine before that you know of, be sure to let the veterinarian know about it before there next vaccine treatment, an antihistamine can be given to reduce the risk of it happening again.. Your ferret must be vaccinated for canine distemper; this can be a fatal disease for a ferret. A kit should get their first injection for canine distemper at around 6 weeks old, then again every 3 or 4 weeks until they reach 14 weeks old, then they will only need a booster injection once a year.. Rabies is another vaccination that is recommended, even if your ferret will not go outside. If your ferret was to ever bite someone, you will want to prove that they have had a rabies injection; otherwise the person who was bitten may be more likely to report the biting.

Ferret Card would like to thank Wa Zen Izakaya Restaurant for their continued support. Wa Zen joined Ferret Card in December 2014 with an initial order of 5,000 iCode coupons. 3 months later , in March 2015, Wa Zen re-ordered another 10,000 iCode coupons..

We are very happy with the results. We have just re-ordered another 10,000 ...
