It sounds like it could be insulinoma. That means your ferret needs vet
care. Do a search on insulinoma and you will find many resources that
you can use to help your ferret immediately. Please do this as soon as
possible because every episode of low blood sugar does some kind of
damage, including neuro/brain damage.
