So my ferret is 4 yrs old, usually very active and playful. When I open his cage to feed him, he will crawl up my arm and lay across my shoulders.
This morning I went to feed him, I opened his cage and he was just laying there. I picked him up and he kind of flopped over, like a rag doll.
He is breathing normally, but is very lethargic. I'm not sure if he is sick or dying. He doesn't appear to be in pain or in distress !
I did a little online research and saw that this might be symptoms of Insulinitis or something like that .. basically low blood sugar. Gave him some karo syrup as suggested, but so far nothing ... so I'm not sure what to do.
Any suggestions ?
