Subject: Re: [ferrethealth] Grinding Teeth and Vet

Our vet [Name removed per FHL rules*] =C2=A0is pretty good, been on animal =
planet a few times, specializes in exotic animal namely ferret. However, he=
's in ohio. Though A lof of vets I spoke to in regard to my late ferret who=
was poor, knew of him. He may be able to guide you to a good vet rear you.
Griding teeth, was one of our ferrets symptoms, and he ended up having anem=
ia. Which can somewhat be treated, though only to prolong him life for a li=
ttle longer.
You need to get some blood work done, and post the result here, you many ge=
t a little closer to finding out whats wrong with him.
Having said that, you seemed to have tried pepto for 1 month and he was goo=
d, I would recommend you put him back on it. I don't think there's any harm=
in=C2=A0a daily dosage, though again talk to your vet about that.
Glad to here you rescued him from a bad owner, that's what we did with 2 of=
our other ferrets. one passed away a year later, though it was good to kno=
w that the remainder of his life was fully of joy.
good luck. regards.

[* Per vet requests we do NOT allow a vet to be named in
a post that also discusses a case that vet has worked on.
The exceptions are published papers or their abstracts
or paper press releases, and a vet talking about her or
his own cases.=20

The FHL Rules can be found in the Files section of the FHL:

and from there a person can also link to the FHL members'
recommended ferret vets list:

either to see which vets are in an area (also useful when
traveling), or to request that a vet be added to the list.
