Subject: Query for vets

I would be most grateful to have an opinion about
green pee. I have a 10-year old boy who has, what my
(ferret knowledgeable) vet describes as "Senile
Hormonal Imbalance", in that he's lost hair on his
tail and his fur is getting pretty thin.

My boy has had an on-going problem with Upper
Respiratory Infections - I have been told it is
because of a virus which was handed down from his
mother. Some ferrets get it, others aren't troubled
by the problem.

Anyway, I've been keeping an eye on him and over the
past few days have noticed he doesn't seem to be
piddling or pooping as much as he used to. He appears
to be eating okay, and is drinking water regularly.

Then yesterday I saw that when he piddled, it was
greenish in colour.

I am taking him to the vet this evening but was
wondering if this could be a sign of kidney problems?
Why I ask is because I had a 4-year old DEW who got
pneumonia 2 Christmases ago and was in hospital for 5
days. We thought he was on the road to recovery but
on the Thursday when I visited him, the vet nurse had
mentioned that he'd had green pee, then early on
Friday morning the vet called to say he'd died during
the night.

Any advice/thoughts would be much appreciated.
