??? MY feret has been acting strange lately and shaking. a couple of days ago i felt she wasn't herself as when i looked in her cage she seemed really relaxed and still, as she would usually come straight to the the cage door to greet me in a way. I would hold her and i can feel her whole body shaking, but when my boyfriend was holding her after i raised the point of this, he said that she stopped shaking. Now every time i i go to see her, she still shaking over the past couple of days and some times very distant. But once she's out of her cage and had a quick walk round the house she's back to her normal self. I don't whether there's something wrong with her or not. My boyfriend thinks it just a routine change as for the last 2 weeks my work pattern has changed. This is our normal routine: mornings she gets a run round of the house from around 8 till 10.30ish then out again at about 4ish till 11ish. Then I had to run a chinese resturant for 2 weeks and having long hours and my boyfriends not being at home that much during those 2 weeks my ferrets only had about an hour or 2 during the evening when i get home. last night she also got quite hyper when she was out all day . is this normal??? i'm a bit worried but my boyfriend thinks there's nothing wrong with her. Any suggestions would be most grateful. Many thanks to anyone who tries to help.

Your ferret's blood sugar might be too low. Give her some ferretone and get her in to see the vet asap.

Does your ferret shake --all-- the time or mostly when he/she wakes up? It is common for ferrets to shake, in order to raise their body temperature. I am sure you have nothing to worry about, i have been working and owned by ferrets for many years now :)
