Subject: Re: Update on Tr. (Message #7375)

One thing about ferrets is that sometimes when you help them
over a hump they go on to have years left. I know the feeling you
are having but if your vet still thinks that it is worth sticking in
there, please, try since it could work. We've had them give us
happy surprises more than a few times.
