I have a ferret who is lethargic, and has been throwing up

Customer Question

I have a ferret who is lethargic, and has been throwing up and there are no exotic veterinarians available in my area this evening. I understand that it is likely that he got a hold of something and there is a blockage most likely requiring surgery. What kind of emergency am I facing and how can I care for him until he is able to see a competent vet?
