Injection site reactions

Ferrets may need to be given injections for a variety of reason and in different areas of the body. Whilst injection site reactions are not overly common, they can occur, and are more common with some medications and injection sites than others. Most are not serious and will resolve without any medical treatment, but you should still speak to your vet if you notice any problems after your ferret has had an injection.
