Not only is this an urgent matter because of the fact that the infection can spread rapidly and become a major problem quickly, but when a ferret has any kind of problem with their mouth or throat they will also usually not eat or drink. Ferrets need to eat often and can become dehydrated quickly, so any time there is something that will cause them to not eat or drink, it must be addressed immediately. Try the Ferret Health List Vet Locator to see if there may be a ferret vet in your area that you are not aware of. If not, then this is still a serious issue that needs to be seen by a vet right away, if for nothing else than to get her on some antibiotics and at least evaluate what the problem might be.

I really can't stress enough how important it is to NOT let a problem in the mouth get out of control, and this can happen quickly with ferrets.
