Subject: [ferrethealth] Terrible Reaction to Distemper Injection
I just got back in from the vets. I took 3 of our ferrets in for check ups and distemper injections.
Mollie, who is 5 years old had a horrible reaction. She began vomiting and went limp. Her blood pressure dropped to 93 degrees.
They immediately gave her oxygen and placed her on a warming platform. They were unable to locate a vein to give her fluids. They had given her epinephrine, decadron and benadryl and were finally able to locate a vein for fluids.
When I went back to see her - her mouth, gums, head and down to her shoulder blades, everything is red. The redness stops right below her shoulder blades and her skin is the normal color from there on back.
I have never seen this before and would like to know if any one else has and if so what is it? (yes my stupidity is showing)
Of course my only choice was to leave her there but I can not help but wonder if she will survive the night.
If anyone is able to answer my question about the redness - I am assuming that is where the allergic reaction happened.
Sukie, thanks for allowing me to post this. Cindy Scheidt
We left her there as we knew that she was so much better off in their care and yet I can not help but think there is no one there at night although our vet assured us that he would be going back to check on her.
I am terrified the phone will ring and he will be calling to say she did not make it.
Whom ever can light candles, pray and do reiki please help our Mollie out.
