Abstract

Coccidioidomycosis (Coccidioides immitis) is reported in three European ferrets (Mustela putoris furo) that were presented with weight loss, lethargy, anorexia, cough, and lameness; one also had draining tracts of the tarsal bones and right carpus. Radiographs showed increased densities in the thoracic cavity. Clinical signs failed to improve with antibiotic treatment. All animals were euthanized or died during treatment.
