[Always check with the treating vet before
trying any medical approach, whether classic,
or OTC (over the counter, partly because some
of those and some variants of others will poison
ferrets, for example ones with ibuprofen,
acetaminophen, pseudoepinephren, or some
other things can NOT be given safely to ferrets ),
or herbal (again also to avoid accidental
poisoning). Remember, too, that OTC meds can
keep the same names with ingredient changes
so what is safe one year may not be safe the
next year.
