As others have mentioned, this ferret needs veterinary care yesterday.
Please get him to a vet ASAP.

What I wanted to comment on was the raisins. Raisins should never be
fed to a ferret. Raisins are known to cause kidney failure in cats and
dogs, and there are also cases reported of it happening in ferrets.
Based on weight, as few as 7 raisins can cause serious and even fatal
problems in ferrets. There was an article in one of the Ferrets
Magazines issues this past your on this topic.

Ferrets are carnivores. Their GI tract can not process fruits and
vegetables, and so fruits and vegetables should not be fed to ferrets.

Healthy treats for ferrets can include meat baby food, cooked meat, and
things like Chew Weasels and Foamy Fries (made by HyperFur - Find things that are meat protein based to
use as treats.
