Subject: Gastric long does it take to see relief?

I have been treating my ferret for gastric ulcers with Clavamox and
Carafate for 10 days. She is way better than the "crash" she had,
(no food, no poops, hind leg weakness, dehydration, a month ago).
The question is...she is still grinding her teeth. Will not eat
ANYTHING besides Friskies cat food. I've tried A/D, Gerbers chicken,
and the ferret food she used to eat. Won't touch any of it. Dr.
Williams suggested a bland diet but she just won't eat it! She
grinds and rubs her mouth after eating...It's killing me to see her
in pain. What do I do now?
