Your ferret will need to see a vet. He has two symptoms of insulinoma, a form of pancreatic cancer that ferrets are prone to. Both the lack of energy and the drooling are common signs of this illness. This form of cancer in ferrets is treatable, and with treatment, affected ferrets often live for several more years.
