Ferret with runny nose - Friday, December 19, 2008 10:36 AM
I dont know if it might be b/c she just woke up but Precious has some snot (clear) coming out of her nose.  Her eyes were not as open as they usually are but I am going to keep an eye on her and see if she gets better.  Any ideas as to what could be wrong with her or have y'all ever had this happen to one of your ferrets?

How about the flu?  Is any one sick in your home or just getting over the flu?

 Ferrets may get influenza, but not colds. Flu or mild upper respiratory infections are not life-threatening in  ferrets.

As long as your ferret continues to eat and drink sufficiently, no
medication is generally the best approach, and if the signs appear
significant, then a vet visit is generally in order

Liberty gets "colds" about every 3-4 weeks in the winter. She's my old girl so I guess she is just more prone... I know to pay attetnion to the others, the boyfriend, and my own helath once she gets sick :) Chances are, we get it too!

My name is Lesley and I am a ferret-aholic. I have been addicted to fuzzies since January 28, 0
