No, and that is what concerns me. she will not take any vitiman paste
licks today. I was going to the store for ensure but I am trying to
get a validation that is ok. What do I do? My vet isn't open until
Monday. The emergency vet really doesn't handle ferrets. I don't want
to loose her. She is so sick. She can only handle a liquid
consistensy. Kristine
