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

I don't leave the baby food and pedia sure out for long. Just once every other day. He has access for fresh food and water all day everyday. He has no changes in eating or drinking. He has been checked for has been negative. I will check heart rate but he is in perfect health. He has no adrenal either. No signs that I have seen. I had two other ferrets a few years ago that both had adrenal and he has shown no signs at all. Thank you.

[What tests specifically have been done? Blood work?
Which blood tests? X-rays? (The chest, which can hold
multiple possible causes of lethargy, could be looked
at at the same time as places like the GI tract to seek
possible bubbles from blockage.) Ultrasound? Which
cavity if ultrasound or was a double cavity search done?
When were the tests done? What were the actual results? Also,
is this ferret obese? Lethargy is common in obese pets and
becomes the same degree of spiraling problem as it too often does
in humans.
