Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Emma + Levamisole

Hi Katherine,
The vulva should go down within a few days and be
back to normal size after about a week.
Levamisole is used mostly as a dewormer for sheep,
pigs, and cattle. Some use it as an "immune system stimulator" in
cats, but
I do not know if it comes in a small size or not. You may want
to ask the large animal vets in your area if they will sell you a
amount to deworm the opossums with.

PS-Have you tried Stongid or ivomec to deworm the opossums?
