Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: New Member - Question

He is going to the vet for a check up next week so we will have his heart checked for cardiomyopathy. He's not getting too much laxatone. No runny or loose stools, no diarrhea. Just enough to help whatever it may be upsetting him pass through his digestive tract. We may need to go buy a water dish that we can secure in the cage - because the bowls look like a fun thing to knock over to them. They'd rather knock it over and re-arrange the cage with it than actually drink the water out of it. But we do let them run around the bathroom sometimes and keep a water bowl in there. And when they don't think of it as a fun swimming pool - they do actually drink out of it! Thanks, Jules

[Ferrets can get pneumonia very easily,
including as a secondary infection to
influenza. A prompt appointment with
chest x-ray could really make sense.
Sometimes pneumonia can not even be
heard on listening.

Influenza is a common problem with
ferrets. They can get avian flu, H1N1,
and can get much milder infections
with another influenza category.

Kits are usually more often cloth
eaters than adults but any adult who
eats, snacks, or grooms in bedding with
many loose fibers such as fake sheep
fleece has can wind up with a "fur"ball.
