Because of their small size and unique diseases, critically ill ferrets can be a diagnostic and treatment challenge for clinicians. Ferrets are often in advanced stages of a disease process at the time of presentation, necessitating aggressive supportive care. History and clinical signs can be vague; thus the differential diagnosis list may include many disorders, such as metabolic disease, toxicity, cardiac disease, neurologic disease, and neoplasia.
