A couple of months ago, my dear Cubby (a ferret of course) got ill. I found black stool, not even slightly solid, all over her and her sister's cage and then I saw her come stumbling out having lost so much weight over what could have barely been two days (my mother had not even seen her losing it though we see them each day. She was still trying to be herself but could hardly stand and after trying to rehydrate her for an hour I had a friend drive me to the vet. Everything was basically wrong with her, her weight and hydration, her blood cell counts, it seems something maybe with her liver too? A lot of this is actually a blur because I was so panicked and the price was just rising every second (it was the middle of the night so we were at an emergency clinic) It turns out she had a bacterial infection, corona virus. She by some miracle has fully recovered and is plump and happy again.
Has anyone else experienced this though?
