My ferret feels and isnt moving around as much, could he have a fever, and if so, how can I treat him?

If your ferret has a fever, he will show a lack of energy, refuse food, be depressed,  not drinking or drinking excessively, any or all of the above. Since he is lethargic, take him to the vet immediately to determine the cause. Running a fever is a signal that the body is fighting an illness.
