I'm not a vet. Get him to a vet as soon as possible, no later than
tomorrow morning. He sounds like he could have a blockage. Get him a
barium x-ray, a regular x-ray usually wont show a blockage. One thing
you can do for now is mix a half teaspoon of Vaseline with a quarter
teaspoon of Ferretone and give that to him. Most ferrets will lap that
up and it will often bust a blockage loose. wrote:
