If your ferrets is over 2 years old I would rule out FIP. Fip uasually hits ferrets under 18 months of age. One of our breeder ferrets, six mothhs old caught FIP about a week after a ferret get together. She lived 2 more years before she passed away. We spent a considerable amout of careand time keeping her going. Most ferrets die shortly after the first symptoms occur. Necropsy and tissue samples were sent to University of Georgia showed FIP. We have been working with Dr Kiupel MSU concerning FIP. Because of FIP being brought into our ferretry we have closed our breeding programs.

write "FIP" this disease is not true FIP which
is a different coronavirus, but is a mutation
of ECE which behaves like FIP, so is
Usually is not always, though it does affect rates.
DIM is also usually seen in kits, but again not always.
