This is Kim Hillingas boy RC shortly before he passed. Nothing she did was working to bring him out, and vet was too far. Kim was able to get through her own heartbreak and videotape this for us to use as an instructional tool. Everyone who has a ferret NEEDS to watch this.
This video IS heartbreaking to watch. But this is what is referred to as a screaming seizure, which many of you have heard of. This is sometimes the end result of insulinoma, but not always. However, if this DOES happen, using a qtip apply karo syrup or a strong solution of sugar water if you don't have karo to the gums and/or anus. This will often bring them out of the seizure, and then within about 20 minutes syringe a high protein meal of meat only baby food if they can't eat a soup on their own. The high protein meal is an absolute MUST, or the seizures will happen again. Once that is done- get to the vet asap.
