My vet charges about £40 - its a "flat fee" for all small animals and they include ferrets in this. I would have thought around £50-60 would be the maximum for something the size of a ferret, but it varies by area and vet.

Just give them a ring and they will happily let you know.

the cost varies,you'll have to just ring up a few vets and see who isthe cheapest.But you dotn want to ahve a super cheap super shabby job done, remeber your doing it to prevent fights damage to your hobs, not to risk them. We havent neutered our hob and hes still musky as ever. :lol:

Hey Rach
Nice to talk ferret with you the other day lol If you are getting a male to keep with your female you would be best getting him vasectomised rather than neutered so that they will still mate, still dunno bout cost of this though lol Try ringing round a few vets.
Will also post pics of mine soon!!

:D

Between £40 and £60. Might be a more different depending on the aftercare if you need to leave it over night.
You should be aware ferrets can sometimes be a bit iffy with anesthetics. Some die whilst under them.

Rach I have kept males together with no probs, as long as you introduce them gradually. I had 3 males and 2 females together with no squabbles.
Just hope my guys turn up soon :cry:
