Subject: Gripe water? Bruce W

Would you reccommend gripe water(used for enfants when suffering from
upset stomach from teething) my ferret Skittles I believe is
suffering from ECE (checking with Vet in 2 days) and has had diarria
for two weeks straight I think there was maybe 2 good days. My vet
reccommended pepto bismal (1/4 crushed tablet), although I think it
is not helping anymore. He throws up, not as bad now as in the
beginning. He's drinking lots of dehydration is not
occuring but his stool is just jetting out his tooshy. I have been
doing the chicken soup and now chicken soup with mushed Totally
ferret for variety. Although the loose stool has me stumped I want to
make it have a lil firmness and was suggested gripe water although a
friend says wait and find out if there are concerns so here I am
waiting for your reccommended advice...Thank you for your time.

Awaiting your response....VEX
