Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Medical Question/Ferret


Thank u for responding. I took the kit to the vet this morning. She tested
positive for coccidia. She had to get antibiotics and Sub-q. Before going
into work at 4. I have to take her back for another Sub-Q. I wish it was a
prolapse rectum. I had that with my first baby.

I would like any information that you have on this. I looked it up in my
Ferrets for Dummies Book. I will be looking for more than what the book

The vet mentioned to give her more calories. My gave her a mixture of
babyfood, ferrentive, and nutrokitten. She ate it like a charm. She's
sleeping comfortably now. I wish she would drink more water. But, with the
addition Sub-Q she should be okay.

Thank you again,
Booker and the Gang
