Thanks for the reply.
Charlie doesn't seem to be anemic, and the vet didn't pick it up in
the blood test he had on Tuesday. He has good and bad days, but I
guess that's to be expected. He seems to have lost quite alot of
muscle mass, so he's a bit wobbly.
Can you, or anyone else tell me if there is any pain for a ferret
with kindey failure ? Or is it a quality of life issue ? I ask
because I want to get an idea of what to look for as the problem
