Unhappy looking for support

Hi All My alpha male has been with my Vet now for 2 days his symptons are high steady fever no eating no fluids clenched jaw and for the most part virtually comatose.She did bloodwork all came back good {waiting for white cell count } X rays show nothing wrong there seems to be no pain or guarding .She is treating as if he has encehalitis antibiotics steroids fluids and he has a feeding tube.This came on within 30 hours running like a 2 year old snorting coke to what U described above .Anyone else had any experience like this ? He is 3:frown2 year old nuetered

Poor boy I dont know anything about ferrets unfortunately. I just wanted to say we have all our fingers and paws crossed here that your ferret makes a speedy recovery.

Re: looking for support
