Abstract:  Congestive heart failure, the most common form of heart disease in aged ferrets, is only one of the diseases to which ferrets are susceptible. Congestive heart failure is an insidious, progressive disease for which there is no cure. Once the diagnosis is made and the proper medication is determined, the ferret must remain on the medication. The case report included with this article, which was submitted by a pet owner, and the accompanying formula is an example of how a compounding pharmacist can work with the veterinarian to aid in the treatment of a small veterinary patient by preparing specific medications.
