Hello, this is Christine. I really have a major problem. I live in the Philippines and ferrets are not usually the kind of pet we got around here. I tried looking for a veterinarian, but they too have not heard of one. My mom, who lives in Japan, gave it to me and she has been sending me ferret foods and vitamins. My ferret is already 5 years of age. For the first five years, I have not encountered any problems with her. But now, I can hear her coughing for almost 3 days now. Since I don't know what medication to give her, I just give her ferret food, water and vitamins everyday. Can I asked you what other medications I can give her? can I also ask if there are other alternatives if I can't find a veterinarian. It seems that vets in the Philippines only know how to treat dogs and cats... Can you help me? I love my ferret so much and I don't want her to be suffering from any sickness. Please email me soon.
Sorry, but my practice is limited to dogs and cats. vetcare
