Poison Ingenstion

Customer Question

My ferret ate or chewed on a mr. clean magic eraser. I phoned the poison control hotline and they said that it may make the lining of the stomache irritable and the ferret may foam at the mouth. They said ferret should show symptoms in about an hour. It has been 2 hours and her nose is cold and wet rather than warm and dry. They said that typically dogs, may foam at the mouth and puke it up. It doesn't kill them. But ferrets don't puke. I gave my ferret extra "petromalt tonight to hopefully send it through. They said it shouldn't be life threatening but I am concerned. Any suggestions?
