    Hello!
    I am a new ferret owner with a very young ferret.
    (Her names sygge btw)
    I was curious as to if this is all normal, but she tends to make this weird coughing/sneezing or wheezing noise whenever we’re playing.
    I’ve heard ferrets tend to hiss and such but the sneeze sound is something else.
    I’ve purchased some basic medication for her (ferretone, stuff for colds, ferret lax just in case) and was wondering if I should either take her to see a vet, get a specific medication or if that’s just normal behavior?
    Any advice would help!
    Thanks from me and syggs

    Does it sound like your ferret is giggling?

    Not sure what ferret giggling sounds like, it just sounds more like raspy airy noises and then maybe a sniffle.

    Does it sound like this? If so it just means shes excited.
