Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Is there a vet near Okeechobee, fl

Necropsy must be done very soon after death if you want to locate
the reason / cause to a definitive degree -- the tissues break down
rapidly as does the blood etc..refrigeration obscures the necropsy
other than identifying a tumor etc.... .

I need to find a vet within a 2 hour radius of Okeechobee,
Florida. I need to have a necropsy done, my vet won't do it
tomorrow and that is the only time I can get anywhere, unless I go
tonight. He says tomorrow will be no good, Is this true? This was
my personal ferret, I had her 7 years, I want to know what exactly
was going on with her when she died. I don't want to bury or
cremate her without knowing. Is anyone near me? Ft. Pierce,
Stewart, Pt. St. Lucie, West Palm, Sebring, Kissimmee, pompano?
anywhere around here? Please email me as quickly as possible. She
died at 11:45 pm last night.
