Please don't load your ferret down with all these odds and ends. You need
to get a good clinical diagnosis. See your vet ASAP. Sounds like some form
of gastroenteritis to me and there are various kinds, each of which is
treated with a different group of drugs. Also, dehydration is a dangerous
side effect of diarrhea. While you are waiting for a diagnosis, you need to
tend to these life-saving supportive measures, so that your ferret survives
until the diagnosis is obtained.
