Our Tibbie has coughing fits occasionally and rattely breathing. He seems to cough when there are a lot of fans on in the house. He does get really hot though when it's humid. So we leave the fans on and I put a thin cotton blanket over him so he can still get the air just not directly on his face. When he coughs I get him up and have him walk around that seems to clear it out of his throat then put the blanket over him.
The only thing that has changed in our household is that in June, we installed a window air conditioner in the livingroom window (where all of the ferret's cages are). Could this be part of the coughing problem?
