Abstract / Description of output

A 1.5-year-old 1.22-kg (2.68-lb) neutered male ferret that had a 6-week history of diarrhea and intermittent melena, bruxism of increasing frequency and severity, increasing lethargy, and 2 recent episodes of vomiting was evaluated. Prior treatment with antimicrobials, sucralfate, buprenorphine, and prednisolone was ineffective; therefore, referral for further diagnostic investigation was pursued. In the ferret's household, there was 1 other ferret and a cat; the ill ferret had close contact with the other ferret and no contact with the cat.
