    well, if your ferret has had its shots, you shouldn't worry too much. Use some peroxide or something, clean it really well. It should be fine :)

    alright, she is up to date on her shots, but I think she needs some more. I know she didn't mean to bite me, just a reaction, when I pushed her paw back into her cage, it was stuck. so that was my reaction, and hers was biting. thanks you two! :)

    I forget what shots mine got but I know they got a rabies shot, I want to say distemper but I don't remember. I would just clean it and watch for any signs of infection. I know my female, as a baby, climbed up me and bit and latched onto my ear (I guess she thought she was an earring) and the tip of my ear still has a lump on it from where she had bit. The lump just never went away.
