And when he learned that he was incorrect he posted a correction, but
I know that sometimes we all have to skim. I have missed things, too.

We have found that often the treatment depends on the ferret and the
infection. Right now we have one who has an antibiotic resistant
one, and the protocol that works best in his case is the oldest one,
so are doing that for a long time for him. He actually LOVES flagyl
with a thick cherry syrup in it, so only the Pepto and Amoxi are
hard, and he forgives those if there's a treat afterward.
