If you notice that one of your ferrets is not acting "normal" that's usually
a good indication that it's time for a visit to the vet. Owner's are in a
position to see subtle
changes that indicate a disease in its early stages. What you are seeing
could be due to many things from fatigue during shedding, to a hairball, to
the flu, to insulinoma. Let the vet do a thorough check. You'll feel much
better if the vet tells you that nothing serious is wrong.
