Subject: vomiting ferret

My Plunkett, he is a 14 week old Marshall Farm baby. He makes
the cutest hissing noises when he plays, but sometimes when he
gets over excited, he makes little gagging sounds. Ysterday,
while we were playing, he threw up. Not very much, and when I
looked through the cage and all the areas the ferrets play in,
there wasn't vomit anywhere else. He hasn't been sick again
since, but I am going to run him by my vet anyway. I was just
wondering if they are like us in the regards that sometimes we
just need to vomit to get something out of our system, or if
there is something I should worry about. Any advice would be
very welcome.
