Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: Help with IBD

I just wanted to thank everyone who gave me suggestions for Willy's IBD. I had to put him to sleep today.
I took him to the vet on Wednesday for a checkup and to talk to the vet about the great ideas you all gave me. When she checked his heartbeat, she was hearing it on the wrong side. She was also concerned that he might have fluid in his abdomen so she took an xray.
Unfortunately it seems that the cancer from his adrenal disease came back and went to his heart. His heart was enlarged and round and caused one of his lungs to collapse. Also, his chest cavity had fluid so he was having trouble breathing. She said I should bring him in within the next week but after that it was going to start getting painful and he would suffer. So she gave me medication to give him to get rid of the fluid and keep him comfortable until I brought him in.
The vet was able to get a vein and he went peacefully. I knew it was time because on the way to the vet's he started having some congested breathing. So it was time.
But thank you everyone for trying to help and your ideas were great. I always thought the IBD would kill him and we were so concerned about that we didn't even realize the cancer had come back in full force.
Rest in peace my little Willy bear.
