I will not use this product or use anything like it. I bought this product in preparation before bringing my little ferret home and after having time to do more research, I found that using any cleansing shampoos (including this one) will strip the oils from the fur. While it will clean just fine, the ferret's body will react to the loss of oils and quickly make more and eventually overproduce. This leaves their fur with more odor and oils than before. Regular water works just fine for cleaning ferrets without stripping necessary oils and the smell can diminish more effectively by having a healthier and regular diet for them. I have had experience with prior ferrets while using this shampoo, there is no denying the difference between the experiences.
Neither of my ferrets are wild about getting a bath. However, two to three times per year, they need a fragrance reset. This shampoo works wonders for resetting their scent without drying out their skin too much. I can tell because they scratch as much before the bath as after, something ferrets do a great deal anyway. I am careful to rinse them two or three times after shampooing just to be sure to get all suds and trace of the shampoo out, which helps with the post-bath itching. The smell of the shampoo is light and does not appear to bother the ferrets (no additional sneezing or other signs of displeasure). I recommend this product for ferrets. I have used it for years and will only use this product with my ferrets.
This is very large bottle at an extremely reasonable price. I couldn't believe how soft, fluffy and moisturized my ferret's fur was after bathing them both in it. They're both on the lighter side, they almost looked white! Absolutely beautiful, and no more scratching! It's tear free, so there was no problem washing their faces and they didn't seem to mind playing in the bubbles it created one bit. It's going to last quite a while, but I absolutely love and recommend this brand and product!
While the product smells nice and I'm knowledgeable enough to know to only use it once a year or during accidental circumstances, this product isn't actually safe to use for more regular use. While aloe vera is great for people, it can actually be toxic for ferrets. While the product works for rare usage, please do your research before buying.
This smelled great and cleaned my ferret very well. He did not have the musky odor some people talk about after a bath which happens when a ferrets natural oils are stripped. I am assuming since he did not have the extra musky reaction , this shampoo did not strip him of his natural oils which makes it amazing. You are not supposed to bath ferrets often so I don't bathe mine but maybe once a year unless he gets into something. It is nice to have this on hand for those occasions and also for the yearly bath.
This works fine for our ferrets. Nothing super unique about it, but it doesn't seem to cause any skin irritation for our ferrets, and it certainly does make them smell better (though we don't bathe our ferrets too often since we've heard that can just make them smell worse).
This stuff is great. Baby ferret is happy! Huge bottle of soap if you have one ferret and only wash it twice a year. Also Amazon sent me a bottle that leaked everywhere on all my other stuff in order. I would order this product solo and ship solo cos that was a pain in the ass.
Originally, I got this shampoo for my ferrets, but I tried it on my black and white spaniel dog and I was impressed. Not only does the shampoo smell great while you’re using it, it also leaves a fresh scent. The fur was even whiter than before and so soft. It stayed soft, white and fresh smelling for many days after application. This is a great shampoo not just for ferrets!
