This doesn't sound like any ECE that I've experienced. They will sometimes
improve in a couple weeks, only to backslide. But, it's usually a pretty
continuous bout rather than three strange poops and then all is fine, then
repeating again in two weeks. I don't recall anyone saying their ECE ferret
has pooped mostly blood.

I suppose it could be ECE, but it would be an usual case.

For the ferrets,
