How to treat a ferret that is having a hard time breathing

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with interest in small animals and exotics.

Can you tell me is the ferret breathing through his mouth with open mouth breathing?

What type of diet is he on?

Type of bedding used?

Is there nasal discharge?

Any cough or wheezing?

Is the ferret still eating and drinking?
