Subject: RE: [Ferret-Health-list] Urgent Breeding Question

Thanks ...I obviously didn't make it clear enough in my post
that she did see her vet last night and had an ultrasound. As
I updated Dr Purcell she is passing the (unfortunately dead)
kits after passing the first one on her own , and 2 more after
oxytocin. I have spoken to her vet twice tonight, and she is
available if I need her. Thank you for your prompt reply.

Tansy... Even giving the room for a couple extra days with
the hob... she is past due AND with the appearance of blood
spotting... I would recommend against administering Oxytocin
at all and have seen by a vet ASAP.
There could be a kit breech or stuck in the birth canal
causing the spotting and giving Oxytocin would only result
in a disaster.
She needs to be examined by a vet immediately.
