I have doubts about the behavior of Ferret, my female pet mixed

Hello doctor, my ferret does not want to eat, does not evacuate this devil just drink a little water. It does no play anymore. Please help me.

In this hot weather, ferrets tend to lose more hair and therefore ingest it and form hairballs that often leads to constipation and loss of appetite. Give her 1 cm (0,4 inches) of malt daily and try with soft massages of her abdomen in a clockwise direction. If she doesn't defecate in 24-48 hours, take her to the vet.

All the best.
