Subject: Re: Low blood sugar but no physical signs

Thanks Dr. Murray for your input. Both times they took Bandit into
the other room, and came back about 10 minutes later with a reading.
The second time he showed me the handheld machine (looked like one of
those palm type computers) that said "Lo" which he said it would
register if it was too low to read. Think maybe the machine isn't
set up for a ferret? Needs calibration? I don't want to put him
through unnecessary blood taking just to find out how low it really
