  • I am sorry. Yes it does sound as though he is going to pass away. Keep water near him and keep him out of drafts. If he likes being petted do some gentle petting. Talk to him.

  • i had a ferret..he died and had the same symptoms. He was sick with a cold or the flu or soemthing like that and I was little so I didnt know how to nurse him back to health. Id make sure you keep him warm..keep water by him. And spend as much time wiht him as possible just in case! Or think about taking him to another vet

  • Please do your ferret a favor a take him to a vet:

    I drive about an hour away to go to a good ferret vet. Do NOT take him to a vet who does not treat ferrets. Many ferrets have died this way because of the incompetence of vets.
