A/D produces very little stool - most of the nutritious ingredients are absorbed efficiently. It is one of the reasons it is used post-surgically for carnivores.

My experience with stools following surgery is that they tend to be softer than norm, scattered and incredibly stinky for a few days, then gradually normalize.


[Also, any surgery which can irritate the intestine
can result in intermittent and thin stools in any
mammal, but do stay regularly in touch with your
vet because you are right there, original poster,
and if you have worries ask the pro who knows
your animal, your animal's surgical experience
(or at least has access to the files), and the options
for your animal. Veterinary emergency numbers
exist for excellent reasons. You will be able to see
things we are not seeing and answer pertinent
questions from your vet immediately.

Remember the usual rules: keep the ferret very
well hydrated, keep the ferret well enough fed
gently with finger feeding, keep the ferret quiet,
do not have any climbing (no ramps and use paper
rather than a litter pot), do not over-heat or over-
cool the ferret, etc. There are many post-surgical
tips in the easily used archives:
