Subject: Re: Arthur is gone


Please let me know what your vet's report finds out. I have recently
lost a lovely little ferret named Duchess in a similar situation. The
Vets at Purdue Univ. did the necropsy and we do not have full results
in yet. Duchess became very ill and lost a lot of red blood cells
too. She made it throught the night after a transfusion but died the
next afternoon. The little dear was only a year old. So far the vet
can say that she is pretty sure that it is not contagious.
