Increased Thirst and Urination in Ferrets

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

It is important that you do not refuse your ferret water, even it is urinating more than usual. The underlying cause may be of serious medical consequence. If your ferret is vomiting, she will need to be hospitalized, where replacement fluids may be administered via tube. This is also the best recourse if she is dehydrated. Medication, meanwhile, will be prescribed according to the underlying cause.
