NOTE: Any advice given for medical needs should never replace a qualified veterinarian. You are more than welcome to ask questions and to get ideas. When in doubt always vet! We can only give you an opinion based on what we have gone through. Please vet if you are told too.

 

• This group promotes a raw species appropriate diet. That includes pictures of raw feeding and videos. We promote Frankenprey, whole prey, and live feeding. There will be no warnings about these pictures or videos.

**Since this is an open group to ferret owners all over the world, live feeding may not be legal for everyone but that does not mean you should shame/judge someone who does live feeding legally in their own country/state which allows it. It is your responsibility to also check your local laws before attempting live prey.**

• While this is a more natural approach group, we do allow kibble discussions. We know that not everyone can feed their ferret a raw diet and are here to educate all owners willing to listen.

♤ While we know that people get into situations and that is fine. If you have a GoFundMe or other fund raising post, please pm an admin to be approved, otherwise the posts will not be approved to our group.♤ If you have your own store and are selling ferret things

Refuting Removal/Ban: If you can prove that you will not go against our rules and will not be a nuisance to the group, then you have the option of refuting the removal or banning. In order for an admin to come to the decision of allowing you re-entry to our group, you will need to prove to us why you should be allowed back in. If an admin makes the decision of allowing the re-entry, you will be on a trial period of 28 days. Within those 28 days, we will monitor your participation within our group. If you do not participate now and then, or proceed to cause issues, we will remove and potentially re-ban you. If you are banned a second time, there is never a third option for re-entry to our group.
