Poor little fellow - sounds like you are right and he does have some tooth problems.

Are the vets you saw familiar with ferrets?

If he is having trouble chewing you may want to try some duck soup so he doesn't lose too much weight.

Have anyone had a ferret who had menopose problem and vet gave them hormone treatment?  If so what was their symptoms?

Also has anyone given tylenol or advil to their ferrets and if so how much?

My ferret is 6 years old.  She is sleeping alot (more than usual) seems to show hip problems.

DO NOT GIVE TYLENOLE OR ADVIL TO YOUR FERRETS, if you think your ferrets are sick please take them to your vet.  Trying to self  medicate for unknown illness could lead to a slow or swift, painful death.   

If your ferret is sleepy it could be insulinomic (diabetic), hips problems could be due poor nutrition.  It could also be old age, your vet would know.


If you are unable to afford vet fees please consider surrendering them.

Most ferrets in North America do not experience Menopause because they've been spayed.  If you're seeing hormone related issues with a ferret that's been fixed, then there is a good possibility this ferret is suffering from Adrenal Gland problems and needs to see a vet for diagnosis and treatment.

Perhaps the some duck soup for a few days to support him until he is stronger, the recipe is on our forum.  Did the vet say what the problems was??
