a cold?

my boyfriend and me and our two ferrets went to his moms house for 5 days. I took the ferrets outside for about 2 minutes so they could play in the fresh snow, it was about 40 out. We got home this afternoon and Snuggles has been sneezing. Could it be because I took her outside or maybe just cuz of a change in surroundings? Usually we have an air filter on but we turned it on cuz we were gone and just turned it back on. maybe she's having allergy sneezes????

sounds like a cold to me. Then again you're right could be allergies to the different surroundings. There is some stuff you can buy at most major pet stores called ferret rx made by Marshall (http://www.ferretstore.com/fs-127.html) I have found that works really good if it is a cold though. I have also heard that you can give a ferret a very small does of Benedryl for allergies. (not sure of the dosage though)

Honestly I would try the ferret rx first.
Are all her habits normal (ie: playing, eating, drinking, eliminating etc.) How is your other ferret acting?

Keep us updated & good luck!

I gave her some ferretvite and she seems ok today. I think it was probably just cuz the air filter had been off. Georgie was fine so it probably isn't a cold.
