Bacterial Diseases in Ferrets

Treatment

 

After diagnosing the type of bacterial infection, the veterinarian will prescribe antiobitics for your ferret. Helicobactei mustelae infections will require antibiotics for at least three weeks, while Lawsonia intracellularis infections only require about two to three weeks.
