    I'm considering owning ferrets in a year or so, do these guys get sick often or would they be 'robust' health wise? Can they get respiratory infections like rats? Are there any particular health problems they are prone to, that I'd need to watch out for?

    Yes they can get sick but it's usually due to incorrect care when it occurs. Overall they're very hardy animals and the illness they're prone to, are usually preventable
