Babies had their vet appointment this morning with their new vet; they were much nicer, cheaper and closer (paid about the same, but that was including a swab test of their ears, medication and a courtesy pedicure —the vaccinations themselves were super cheap compared to the last place we went) :) Both of them have ear mites though so my next challenge is getting them to let me clean and medicate their ears x_x easier said than done!
Also, apparently Mr. Picky-I-won’t-try-anything likes dog biscuits. Koda hunny, what is wrong with you? xD
So the whole swollen neck thing was just a false alarm. Koda has gained a whole pound since the summer and weighed in at 2.2 lbs. Willow was 2 lbs. All is right with the world. :)
I really hope Koda is just suddenly super fluffy and fat, and not showing early signs of juvenile ferret lymphosarcoma. :( I just came home from a week of state active duty and it looks like his neck is swollen… getting an appointment ASAP. They’re both due for their distemper shots anyway—though honestly it’s not like there are many options if he does have it….
I’m pretty sure Koda is coughing on purpose just to see if I’ll lift the sheet over their cage to check on them. Cuz he stops the moment I look in. Cheeky little bugger xD Didn’t take him long to pick up the ‘let’s pretend to poop so I can go play’ routine, I wouldn’t put it past him…
I'm the proud person of two wonderful fuzzbutts, and this blog is dedicated to them. :)
Koda is my eldest. He's a chocolate sable and was born May 20th, 2010. He's very sweet and mellow, and loves to explore new places indoors. Not too thrilled about outside though!
Willow is the bratty little sister. She is a black sable and was born October 31st, 2010. She's rambunctious and crazy and 100% ferret. She also has a sweet side and gives lots of kisses, especially when first let out of the cage.
