Yikes! I don't know what the correct amount is, but this would be a
huge amount. If the body is 60% water (factoid complements of my
physiology professor), 90cc would be about 15% of the water in a kg.
The plasma in the body is about 20% of body weight (similar factoid
citation), so that would be like adding 3/4 of the plasma volume.

Anyway, when I was working in a (very ferret-full) clinic, we would
usually give 10 to 30 cc at a time, or about a tenth of the amount
listed in the previous post.

Sorry about the "fun with math", but it's finals and I'm a little loopy.

Not a vet, but I will be in 2009!
