Subject: [ferrethealth] RE: ADV - sneezing - best tests?

The only reason I'm not going by the archives is because I have heard that they no longer do ferret blood tests at United. So, is the saliva test by Avecon the best one to use? I have people telling me all different things.

However, the owner said he left for the weekend and when he got back on Sunday she had passed away. He didn't know her age. He said she was acting perfectly normal and not sick so he was very, very surprised that she passed and had no clue it was going to happen.
