Full Answer

When purchasing a pet online, it is important to purchase from a trustworthy source; animals accompanied by a USDA Veterinarian Health Certificate have received necessary vaccinations and can be assumed to be in good health. Most reputable breeders also provide buyers with veterinarian contacts and information on ferret ownership. Buyers need to understand the regulations for exotic pets in their own states as they are prohibited in California, New York City and other areas.
