Foreign Objects In Stomach in Ferrets

Treatment

 

Soft foreign objects in the stomach, and foreign objects that are not blocking the intestine, can be passed through the ferret's stool using laxatives. Surgery may be required if the digestive tract is blocked. However, ferrets usually recover well from this type of surgery.
