Excessive Production of Saliva in Ferrets




Treating the underlying cause of the ptyalism, once it has been effectively diagnosed, will be the first concern. Although it is generally not necessary, your doctor may also treat the outward symptoms to reduce the flow of saliva. Nutritional supplements and fluid therapy may be recommended if your ferret has been suffering from ptyalism for any length of time and has not been able to eat or drink properly.
