There is actually a lot on this sort of topic in the archives,
though, as Pam has pointed out, searching on ECE is pretty well
impossible so you'd be better off searching on related words. My bet
is that putting "diarrhea" (but without the quotes) into the search
box will give you a wealth of information. "Corona" may also be
Helicobacter is a bacterium genus. ECE is a corona virus. There are
a range of different treatments for different GI tract disorders but
it can be hard to figure out what is going on sometimes. Biopsies
can tell sometimes, as can trial and error at times.
If you want to really learn about ECE go to:
http://www.afip.org/ferrets/index.html . You'll also find some
useful Helicobacter info in the section on ulcers.
Runs can also at times be caused by non-GI things; one example is
that we've seen "butterscotch pudding stools" with insulinoma
sometimes, and they clear up when that is corrected.
