If Cisco's skin doesn't go back at all when you pinch it up, I would
recommend a quick visit to your vet to ensure that he is not
dehydrated. Once you know what's "normal" for him, you'll be able to
better judge whether or not he's dehydrated.

concerned is the skin on his back does not go back when I pinch it.
His stool is firm with no signs of diarrhea. I've been giving him one
drop of Ferret-Vitasol in his water.
