Her belly is distended with fluid, and she is lethargic and

I'm sorry to hear about your sweet littleone. I'm sure they must
do the same things to ferret too. I know that you have to be really
careful with fluid thearpy with heart problems.
How much does she weigh? And how much fluids are you giving her?
What does she eat, wet or dry?
You may want to ask your vet about giving a diuretic. I know that
smaller doses of fluids and more often are suggested with kitty's
with renal failure.
Can you forward a copy of her blood values? This will help us better
in helping you.
Keep us posted,
Cynthia, Taffy, Samuel
