Can animals get STDs-one of my family members has herpes and she left her tampon in the trash where my ferret accidentally ate it eeww. Now he has an infection on his ear-could he have herpes?

The chances that a human virus, such as the herpes virus, mutates and gets tansferred to an animal is very rare. In this case, i would say the chances your ferret contracted herpes from eating a tampon that had been used by a herpes positive woman is ridiculously low. If you are concerned about the infection on your ferrets ear, I would take him to the vet. The cause of the infection is most likely a ferret viral infection, bacteria, mites, a rash etc...
