Thankyou for your reply. I have been using Timmy's Tonic
also. My vet just put Mikey on antibiotics, as his tonsils
are swollen also.
Thank you again.

hi all :)

my vet, who is ferret knowlegeble, was confused by Bianca's
swollen fat pads.
i called them mumps. he said wait and see. He was not sure
if it was an
allergy or an infection. I treated her with benadryl for a
while, but
nothing changed.

I too had lost a ferret and was horrified to see the
swellings in a new

I had some of Timmy's Tonic (1 dropper full once or twice a
day) and some
colodial silver (a dropper or less). these two have kept
the swellings down.

now she is down to almost nothing, just when i notice the
swelling increasing.

just some passing thoughts.
