Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Poop chart

Bloody poop - If you see frank blood in the poop - it is usually
either from the large bowel or rectum ( if seen in small amounts) -
of if there is a lot of blood, it could come from the entire length
of the GI tract. Massive hemorrhage is seen either from severe
gastric bleeds or shock in ferrets, and as one might imagine, is a
really bad sign."

Thanks Mike, I was just thinking since the first sign in her ferret was
the mucous then mucous with blood, could the blood be from the rectum? I
mean a prolapsed rectum due to another cause, and just not real prolapsed
yet-so it isn't seem without careful exam?? If that makes sense.
