Subject: [ferrethealth] Vulva infection, vinegar water
To: <>

More important question is why the infection?
If a spayed female, the underlying cause may be
adrenal gland disease.
In an unspayed female, perhaps from heat cycle?

I would want a vet to do an exam and confirm infection,
and then look for underlying reasons. IN 15 years of owning
ferrets ( all spayed) I have only had one with seeming vaginal infection- which the vet at the time treated with antibiotics, but never recognized it was adrenal gland disease which then went untreated. It was my first ferret and I have learned a lot since then, so just wanted to share that experience and give some things to think about. depending on your ferrets age and circumstances would highly recommend a vet visit to a vet that sees ferrets fairly regularly.

Subject: [ferrethealth] Vulva infection, vinegar water

I have a ferret with a mildly infected vulva. At another website I
read that an owner with 23 years of experience found cleaning it with
vinegar water much more effective than administering antibiotics
orally being that the infection is local and not systemic. Has any one
else successfully used vinegar water? If it's done 2 times a day about
how long might it take to resolve?

Thanks a lot
