Trim ferret's teeth?

Species: Other
Breed: ferret
Age: 2-5 years
can you trim your ferrets teeth so that when they bite it wont hurt as much and if not how can i pervent them from bitting




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

I don't treat ferrets, but I am quite certain that you can't trim their teeth like you can with rabbits or rodents.

Ferrets' teeth have nerve supply just like ours. If they are trimmed it will cause chronic dental pain for them.
