Subject: ECE

I have a ferret with ECE. He has been sick for a month and is now
eating a little bit on his own. He gets soup about five times per
day and he seems to be doing OK. The vet has him on pred. to help
with the inflammation of his intestines but his poops are still loose
sometimes and seedy. He doesn't seem to be losing weight but he
hasn't gained any back either. I don't know what to do. He grinds
his teeth when he eats and digs at the floor afterwards. He has
already been through a 14 day Biaxin regiment, and he seems better
than before. But he is still not back to normal.

I appreciate any advice.

PS Dr. Williams, I sent the samples to Dr. Kiupel and he confirmed
the presence of the coronavirus. Now I need to try to collect serum
samples to send him. Thank you.
