My little weasel is sick! She's about 6 1/2 years old, and spayed...no contact with other ferrets, only my two cats. She doesn't get out of the cage recently except about once a week, but tonight when I took her out, she looked like she had a fat belly. I touched her stomach and it's real hard, but it doesn't seem to cause her any pain. It's almost like she's distended. I know she's not impacted, because I saw her use the box right before she got out. She's also weak...she has never been able to stand being held, yet she just about fell asleep in my arms. When she walks, she has a noticable waddle. What could it be!? I have a feeling it's a tumor, but I want to hear from a vet. I'm gonna try to take her in the morning to be examined, but I'd like to know in advance what to possibly expect.
Please help me! [>(]
