You are here:

Ferrets/my ferret may have drowned.


My ferret seems unconcious but still breathing with a really slow heart beat. I dont have any money for a vet. Her mouth is a bit red and pink and her nose is still pink. Is she in a coma? I can't tell if she is dead or not. This is sad please help. I tried giving her a bath and she just stopped moving all of a sudden. Her pads of her paws are still pink too. Her mouth is also wet. Idk what to do please help:'(.

Dear Zack,

I have no idea as to what has happened to your little fuzzie.  You said you think she may have drowned.  From what you've said it does sound that way.  Since I am not a vet, I am at a loss as to what to advise.  I can only say that if she is still breathing please go ahead and take her to a vet immediately.  I sincerely hope everything turns out okay.

I've raised ferrets very successfully for approximately twelve years. I usually kept three at a time. I presently have one. I've tried a variety of cages, habitats, toys, treats.
