Dead ferret

Recommended Posts

Just gone in to feed them and my spayed Jill was dead only just though still warm absolutely fine yesterday jumping about no marks or owt from her as she usually lives with a hob she could of been old as someone gave me her and didn’t know how old she was but usually if it’s old age it doesn’t just come at once

This will Sound strange but Are you sure she is dead ... some ferrets go into a coma like sleep and you literally have to shake them out of it .....

Sorry to hear that. Understand why you ask. Certainly my experience that old ferrets never die without some indication their time is coming. Also seeing other comments, old ferrets have sometimes not appeared at feeding, I've opened a nest box and thought they were dead only to have them wake up in my hand

The only natural quick death of a Jill we've had was likely a diabetic type response to an early stage cancer. Suddenly she was struggling to move, Regrettably we weren't sure what it was and within an hour she fitted and died. In future I would use a syringe to get some sugary fluid in their mouth
