Ferrets are easily bred and are produced in great numbers at commercial ferretries for the pet and laboratory animal trade. In the USA, most ferrets arrive in pet stores already demusked and neutered. Many practitioners will never see intact breeding ferrets. Elsewhere in the world ferrets are bred for hunting use, as well as for laboratory animals or pets. Table 6.1 gives an overview of reproductive data for ferrets.
