I don't have any experience with ferrets and biaxin, but I know that
I took it once and it wrecked my stomach with pain and vomiting,and I
also had a (human) friend who stayed on it longer and became
seriously ill and took two months to recover. Isn't there anything
else besides this nasty drug that they could use? I don't blame the
poor guy for not wanting it.
