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. :)
The GCFA received an emergency call last night asking for help. The caller’s son’s ferret was lifeless and they didn’t know what to do. Feeding it some whip cream (on hand) to try and perk him up wasn’t helping. A steady diet of dog food didn’t seem to suffice and provide enough sustenance as a…
It’s so heartbreaking to hear about something like this, because it literally would have taken two minutes to go on Google and search about what to feed ferrets to save this little kit’s life. Two minutes. Not a single result I get says ANYTHING about dog food being an option, and I know of at least two sources off hand that specifically warn against it because it lacks what ferrets NEED to survive. How someone could be so thoughtless to bring an animal home without bothering to do a minute’s worth of research…it’s tragic.
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.
