Recognizing diseases in ferrets

Here will be addressed only clinical signs of major diseases, not pathophysiology and / or treatment.

When you're almost ready to take your buddy to the vet, remember that it will need as much information as possible about changing the habitual behavior, and clinical signs shown by your buddy.

I quote below some of the questions most often performed by a veterinarian:

  1. Where VOCO adiquiriu it? Pet shop, laboratory, neighbor?
  2. How long is the owner?
  3. Do you have other pets at home? What are they? Share the same environment?
  4. Which provided feeding? How many times a day? Where and bought?
  5. You changed the feeding? This buying elsewhere?
  6. In that site and stored food?
  7. Who is responsible for food and hygiene?
  8. It was stated at the vet? It is vaccinated (always take the vaccination certificate), vermifugado? Had some other problem prior to this? You brought the old recipes?
  9. How long have you noticed a change in behavior?
  10. You doctored it? (Please be sencero!)

All this questions are fundamental to the veterinarian. NEVER LIE, do not be afraid, HE IS YOUR BEST FRIEND, and really want to solve the problem of your little friend!
