Subject: INTESTINAL FLU - Need help now, please

My ferret has been having nasty smelling green-slimy stools. My book
says it can be intestinal flu. He has been in the hospital since
yesterday and the vet really doesn't know how to diagnose or treat it.
How? Blood test? The stool tests for parasites have been negative I
think 2 or 3 have been done so far. What can help the poor creature?
He has lost about 14 ounces in the last 3 or 4 weeks. Any suggestions
for us? Thanks, dooks to all. ferretier (aka Carol), Shy-Girl, Tr,
