Fester the Skunk

Posted: 20th July 2017

FESTER HYDE, the 3 year old Skunk came in today at Manor Exotics, Edgbaston, West Midlands for his castration.

The operation took around 20 minutes and Fester recovered very well from his anaesthetic, receiving some TLC from our nurse Lucy.

Fester was able to go home with his owner Laura, shortly after.

Pet Skunks

Pet skunks are best neutered, neutering your skunk especially if it’s male will help lessen aggressive behaviour. Some male skunks particularly can become aggressive and leave urine trails everywhere once they reach puberty.

Female skunks can also show large behavioural changes once in season. especially the females because if they are not mated or neutered they can become ill.

The best time to neuter your skunk is between 4 - 6 months of age.

Neutering makes for a much better house pet.
