Subject: Bruiser/Dr Williams HELP!!!!!
Last night,Bruiser started dry heaving.This lasted about 1/2 hour tho
not steady.It was 2 am so I called the animal ER...(he was also not
enjoying his Gerbers that day,fighting me) They knew nothing of ferrets
but would see him.So, with ferret books in hand,I was getting dressed
when he started acting very normal...I waited,watched,he ate...so I
stayed home,one eye on him all night.This morning he ate 1/3 jar with
vigor.Just now,3:30 pm he pooped.It had the "consistency" of Gerbers but
was brick in color.Not bloody looking at all,just brickish.Not
seedy,very soft and goopy.
He has been a bit lethargic since his face tumor biopsy,sleeping alot
(he is 4 or 5) The tumor biopsy was two weeks ago so I AM taking him in
tomorrow anyway as his stitches are to be removed.Except for the funny
poop,he is acting like himself.....Should I take him to an ER today? As
they do not treat ferrets (last one told me he had bacteria in is
poop,remember??) I am leary.Any ideas?
I just don't like the color......
BTW....Dr XXX has the other part of that biopsied facial tumor.Do you
Maybe IT has live cells??
