Subject: Re: [ferrethealth] Re: HELP! Furosemide for early cardiomyopthy? Aspiration w/ freeze-dried food?

Have an ultrasound of the heart done if cardiomyopathy is suspected. That is incredibly useful for accuracy. If A/V Node Block is possible then have an EKG/ECG done.

Certainly, ferrets can aspirate food and too many get pneumonia as a result. Usually, a problem like megaesophagus, or an approach like rushed forced feeding/ syringe feeding is involved, but that is not to say that it might not happen otherwise.

In your shoes we'd have more testing done.
