Subject: CPR for Ferrets?

Hello everyone!

I have a question for vets and anyone else who can help. A concerned
ferret mom wrote me a letter asking if there are "CPR procedures for
Ferrets." She lost a little one recently whom she feels she might
have been able to save if she knew the correct method. She knows CPR
for humans already and has reviewed the methods for dogs and cats. I
can't remember seeing any literature out there about Ferret CPR and I
think it's a very valid question.

Can someone here provide me with a site link to read about ferret CPR
or can one of the many talented vets or owners on here run through
the correct procedure? I think it would be beneficial to ALL of us,
even if just a review for some... And of course, I will pass the
information on to her with credit given to each of you who
respond. :)

Thank you very much!
