There was an article in Modern Ferret about a ferret that got sick from
drinking aquarium water. They got it cured up and blocked her access to
the top of the fish tank, but she relapsed. They were pretty confused by
that until they moved the fish tank and found a tiny leak that she was
lappingt up. What she was catching was one of the microscopic parasites.
