Subject: [ferrethealth] Longterm birdseed poop

Hello FHL,

Please send advice.

Rico looks and acts fine. But has had birdseed poop for abt 10 days w
no improvement. He is eating constantly. He is 4.

HE spent the better part of abt 5 weeks on sulfa Rx for Coccidia, and
now, after that, has spent about a week on Amoxy (see earlier posts
for specifics on this, if you like)

What do you think is the problem? What do you suggest for him?

[Moderator's Note:

Please, see past posts on this situation because it is not a normal one.

These ferrets are the first in Addis, Ethiopia. No tests have been done
and the indivudual treating them is unable to even do the basics, not having
even a microscope. The university vet program is being considered as
as source of further care. Multiple ferrets have died. Food is homemade,
and for a while the ferrets had access to an outside yard.

To see past post go to
and in the from box put


and then click the search button.

Help with African infections of members of Carnivora that have GI symptoms
would be very helpful.]
