ECE: Epizootic Catarrhal Eneritis is a highly contagious, ferret specific, viral disease. This disease is an infection of the intestine, causing production of excess mucous, which causes diarrhea and damages the intestinal lining responsible for absorbing nutrients and water. Your veterinarian may prescribe antibiotics such as Amoxicilian and/or Flagyl to help prevent secondary infections. Kaopectate or Pepto Bismol are sometimes also prescribed to help protect the intestinal tract and may make the ferret more comfortable. Pepcid AC may be prescribed to help prevent ulcers caused from stomach acid attacking the digestive tract. Prednisone, a steroid, may also be prescribed to increase appetite as well as reduce inflammation and stabilize blood sugar levels.

ADV:Aleutian Disease: Disease caused by Aleutian disease virus (ADV) Ferrets may contract the disease (Aleutian Disease) and never develop signs or symptoms but act as a carrier. Symptoms are widely variable and may include weight loss, hind quarter weakness, lethargy, blood in the stool, twitching or seizures, anemia, and enlargement of the liver or spleen. Please note that all of these symptoms can be associated with more common diseases. No cure or treatment is available for Aleutian disease at this time.
