Subject: RE: [Ferret-Health-list] ADV in San Antonio

Dr. Williams,

I have to put my 2 cents in here as well. I am fairly new to the ferret
community and I live here in San Antonio. I have gotten to know Candi &
Rick as they have been a GOD send as you put it, in information and
resources. I am so lucky to have them here. You also mentioned Dr. Gates,
he and his wife are OUTSTANDING in the ferret community. I have that adrenal
girl I wrote about a few weeks ago where I mentioned the cost and got jumped
on instead of assistance in managing her symptoms who is recovering in his
clinic RIGHT now. She is not eating or drinking on her own yet and is being
tube fed. She had a major tumor on the left and even larger one on the
right and into the pancreas and liver. She also had to have her vena cava
ligated. It is touch and go right now. But if it weren't for Dr. T & L
Gates, she wouldn't have lived at all. As far as the ADV, it was
mentioned, explained and tought to me from day one, as I have adopted from
Candi and there isn't even a HINT of it being hidden, they are very
knowledgable and forthright with the information. I have been to their
shelter and they are supurb people.
