Customer Question

My ferret looks as if he as hemroids. His butt does not look normal it is protruding and is now bright pink. What is wrong? Can we fix it? Do we need to take it to a vet?

Hi Shady,

This site goes over treatment and when a vet visit is necessary. I hope this information is helpful to you.
