I am a little worried about it. My other guys have been around

scoop them out right after her (when she is out). How contagious
this? Does anyone know anything about this? Should I have my vet
any other tests? I understand that with coccidea it may not
have the eggs in the poop? Do I need to treat all of my ferrets?

You need to take your ferret to your vet and have her examined,
vaccinated if it's the right time in her schedule and have her stool

examined, as there are lots of different possibilities for what's
going on
here. Depending on this, your other ferrets may or may not need to
