I have 2 ferrets and i noticed yesterday that there was some poop that was softer than normal, but didnt look too concerning in the littler box. I seperated them and gave them both a little pumpkin before bed just so i could monitor their poop situations and make sure everything was normal. I ended up sleeping in late and when I got up i seen that Frankie, my 9 month old boy had watery poop in his part of the cage. I thought this was strange but didnt want to freak out and tried to give him some pumpkin. He wouldnt eat it like he normally would and would only eat it if i put it on my finger and up to his nose. He looked at his kibble a couple times but didnt eat and moved on to do something else. He doesnt seem lethargic but he has smelly water poop. My vet is currently closed and i dont know of an emergency one in my area. I am planning on calling the vet first thing in the morning and getting him in, but i was wondering if there is anything else i should do in the meantime, or if i need to get him to an emergency vet asap. I keep trying to get him to eat pumpkin and chicken baby food at the moment, hoping his poop would firm up or he would poop something out. Im really scared and freaking out right now. 2 nights before i let them play in my bathroom but i cleaned it out 3 times with vinager water first. The day after we visited my mom and i let him wander around her house on a leash/harness he did end up getting lose and crawling up into her couch but i got him out very quickly by sqeaking a sqeaky toy rapidly. Im scared idk if there was something in the bathroom i missed, he got something at my mom's house, or if he somehow has gotten sick but his poop is very liquidy and smelly. it's not green or bloody but he has never had poop like this before and he normally eats a ton. My other boy is eating normally and has normal poop he also played in the bathroom and visited my moms on leash and harness.
