Subject: Snappy

To anyone that can help-

My 2 year old descented/spayed female ferret Snappy has been
having mucous stools. They are ocurring daily and do not
smell like the usual ferret poop, they smell much worse.
This has been going on for about one month now. She is
eating, drinking, sleeping and playing normally. Her hair
and skin are healthy appearing. She does not seem to have a
tummy ache and she does not strain in the litter box. She
has lost a little weight but does that every Spring
normally. She eats only Purina Kitten Chow and the
occasional ferret treat from the pet store. She does not
stay in a cage and just lives where she wants in our
apartment, which is completely ferret-proofed. We have
three other ferrets-a one year old male, and two other two
year old females, all fixed, descented and healthy (no
mucous for them). The vets around where I live do not work
regularly with ferrets and I am starting to get worried
about her.

Thanks for any help...
