Fluid Buildup in the Kidney Due to Kidney or Ureter Obstruction in Ferret

Treatment

 

The treatment plan will depend on the underlying cause of the disease and whether or not there is kidney failure. If the obstruction is causing serious damage, for example, it may require surgery. Fluid therapy is typically needed to restore electrolyte deficits.

 

Living and Management

 

Depending on the diagnosis and the treatment plan, your veterinarian may want you to bring your ferret in for blood tests from time to time to monitor its progress. Its prognosis will depend on the underlying cause and whether or not the animal is suffering from an infection.
