Kidney Disease in Ferrets



Depending on the underlying reason for the renal disease, the veterinarian may prescribe antibiotics, or treat for toxins and autoimmune disease. If the ferret has stones, it may need surgery or laser surgery to remove them. It is also important that the ferret be given plenty of fluids, a well-balanced diet, and heat therapy during this time.
