Subject: Re: Ferret With High Fever

One of our guys had a 108 degree temp once. Our vet said he had
never seen such a high temp in a ferret and had that ferret pull
through. However, our Buttons was tough, and he recovered. (We have
since lost him ~ rest in pleace, Butts.) I don't remember the
antibiotic he was on, but I know it was stronger than amoxi. Ask
your vet for something more potent! Good luck!

ferret to the vet and they started him on a antibiotic
called "Amoxicillan" which did nothing to reduce the fever. My ferret
is running a fever that is staying in a range of 105 degrees, has
also run a sonagram and shows no blockages, no liver problem and only
visible signs other than green mucus diarrea. Also has checked for
the ECE, flu and corona virus and blood work shows no white blood
cell elevation and all other seems to be normal. I am very confused
and concerned about the health of my ferret. Anyone has any
information on ECE testing, something were not picking as cannot find
any information at all and everything seems to lead to this or common
flu? Please help as this ferret has been running a fever for about 4
days and I had hopes that the vet could of reduced the fever , thanks
and also I do have another 5 ferrets but no other ferret show any
symptoms, say a prayer for my little one.
