our 6.25 year old female ferret stopped eating several days ago, her
feces is tar like and under examination contains blood, she has lost
25% of her body weight. she can hardly walk.
she has zero appetite, weare force feeding her a solution of nutrical
disolved in water. she is being given .25 ml of antibiotics, and
today we put her on prednizone.
what are we to do. i have two ferrets now, and we had another that
past away at age 6.5 yrs. has anyone seen a ferret that has lived
past 7 yrs????
exploratory surgery??? i have yet to meet a vet that has any clue at
all, (there was a guy in waere, nh that was pritty good) but thats a
long trip from new york.
IMMEDIATE RESPONSE FROM THOSE THAT CAN HELP IS APPRECIATED!
