Subject: Re: [ferrethealth] Boris - lethargic and dribbling

I would have him checked and treated ASAP for a STD sexually transmitted

It is a good policy NOT to lend hobs out unless the female ferret has been
vet checked to rule out carrying any STD's.

The longer you wait to have this checked out the greater the chance that
you will not have a breed able hob!
