When a Ferret starts acting this way something is seriously wrong. If you can get her to an ER Vet that would be the best situation. The ferrets hide illness and when this happens they need to be treated. The Ferret will need Sucutaneous fluids and time is very important. If you have some Pedialyte try offering that via eye dropper. You need to also get some nutrution into the ferret use Gerber chicken baby food. You can try and save your baby, but you needd to see a Vet ASAP. I can help you locate a Vet if needed with a Zip code. joan
Here is an ER clinic in your area:
You can try a drop of pancke syrup on her tongue to help balance her glucose, try to get some of the baby food into her (chicken baby food will offer some nutrition), and the Pedialyte will give some electolytes. The best solution will be to get her on an IV at the Vets office. Joan
What you are seeing is a sick animal wanting to be left alone. This is instinct and will happen when they do not feel well. It is just like a child that is scared when ill. Were you able to reach the clinic to take her in? Joan
