Subject: [Ferret-Health-list] Hello-new person (and ferret
Hi Mir and welcome to the list. I am confident you will
receive much more "expert" advice than I have to offer but I
must say.... I find it odd your vet is opposed to medication
treatment? One of the very times the medication is indicated
is precisely in cases where the ferret is deemed unsuitable
(age illness etc) for surgery.
Again welcome and much luck to you.
PS.. Love your fuzzies name. Very cute!

Hello to all. My name is Mir and my ferret's name is C.
Emily Play. (We just call her Emily for short) Emily was
diagnosed yesterday with adrenal tumors and because of her
advanced age, our vet doesn't want to use any medications or
even attempt surgery. (Emily is almost eight years old) I
want to make my little girl's final months with us as
comfortable as possible and would welcome any suggestions
anyone might have. Emily is most likely the last ferret I
will ever share my life with,sadly. At one point my home
was brimming with "weezuls", as my son calls them, but one
by one the little ones passed away and now we only have
Emily. I do miss the pitter patter and chuffling. I thank
you all in advance for any advice you might be able to give
and I look forward to being part of this group. Sincerely,
