Urinary Tract 'Stones' in Ferrets

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Once the type of urolith is diagnosed and located, your veterinarian will devise a treatment plan. If the uroliths can not be dissolved with antibiotics, surgery is required to remove the “stones.” Fluid therapy is also necessary to maintain the ferret well hydrated.

 

Living and Management

 

Once the stones are removed, your veterinarian will devise a dietary and living plan for your ferret.

 

Prevention

 

Providing a well-balanced, healthy diet for your ferret may help prevent uroliths from forming in your ferret. But because there are various causes for the condition, there is no surefire way to prevent it.
