Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Teddy Bear/Bladder Infection

Dr. Murray,

This is what did in my little guy. We went through
every drug you can find and nothing worked. He was
agressive toward my little female but not the males.

I wonder why my vet did not catch this, operate and
save his life. Instead we went through every series
of drugs the vet could find, nothing worked. My guy
lost the use of his back legs one Friday and by Monday
his system shut down and I had to put him to sleep.

I really wish I had know this and could have possibly
saved the little fellow. He was my only kisser.
