MY 6 MONTH OLD FERRET ( SCOOP )  IS PASSING POOP WITH THE APPERANCE OF BIRDSEED TEXTURE .  I READ THAT IT IS A SIGN OF DIGESTIVE PROBLEM  , DIGEST FATS ETC.   I TOOK HIM TO THE VET THAT IS ABOUT 40 MINUTES FROM ME  ,FIGURING HE WOULD UNDERSTAN HOPEFULLY THIS MINOR PROBLEM .  I DO HAVE A FERRET SPEACIALIST ( 2 HOUR DRIVE FROM HOME )   I TOOK MY LAST FERRET THAT PASSED FROM THAT NASTY  ( DIM )  

  BUT I BELIEVE MY DOGS VET IS NOT TO FAMILAR WITH FERRETS , HE THINKS THE FERRET IS EATING SOMTHING HE SHOULDNT , I TOLD HIM NO HES NOT . MY FERRET IS NOT A CHEWER AND I SEARCHED THE HOUSE UP AND DOWN TWICE FOR HARMFULL THINGS HE COULD GET INTO .  

THE VET PUT HIM ON A TYPE OF ANTI INFLAMATORY AND ANTI BIOTICS , I DONT SEE ANY MOORE MUCUS IN HIS POOP , BUT IT STILL HAS BIRD SEED APPERANCE ,   IF IT DOESNT CLEAR UP I WILL TAKE HIM TO THE SPEACIALIST

 PLEASE REPLY WITH ANY INFORMATION OR EXPERIENCE ON THIS POOP ISSUE     THANK YOU

This article by Dr. Bruce Williams says birdseed-like poop is nonspecific, but could indicate ECE. It has photos, so you can really compare.

And here's more about ferret poop, also by Dr. Williams

Good luck to you and your ferret!
