Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: My ferrets lack of energy

I was just wondering does the ferret have 24 hour access to any food,you
state you feed him Marshall's mixed with baby food and pediasure,but how
many times a day is he eating this ,since it should not be left out for long
at room temp?
Also, I had a ferret who died from juvenile lymphoma,first sign was not
wanting to play or do anything, just eat, potty,back to sleep,then weight
loss, and went downhill in less than a month,
Also, is the breathing normal,try counting the rate for a minute while he
is sleeping ,should be about 33-36 breaths per minute,

[This gets back to the importance of a vet exam and
hopefully that has been done and an update will be

To check for JL a chest x-ray can be very useful since
the thymus tends to be very enlarged with that.
