My Vet tells me that if you suspect your ferret has experienced a low BG episode (weakness, seizure, etc) and you give them something such as honey or karo and they perk up, that's a definite diagnosis. Since you did this with L.Guy, I wouldn't doubt it, but cancer/tumors is just one of those things in ferrets, very common and almost can be inevitable with almost life long kibble fed, marshall farms babies. My hope is that L.Guy lives the rest of his life as happy as he could possibly be, because in the end that's all we can do it's all that our little woosels seem to want or need in this world.
I wish I had babies to put on raw... LOL. My youngest adopted was 1yrs, but she did take much more easily to it, still will take a few months but my oldest I'm looking at another 2-3 months easily and he's already been on it for 3 mo, my youngest just started 1 mo ago and if we didn't have certain delays in life I believe she would be on large chunks. Isn't it great having little ones that take more easily? I find it extremely rewarding and awesome to hear the chewing of meat or crunching of bone, hehe.
I am sure heather has lots and lots of stories to tell lol ( cant own poleys and not have stories lol) I smile every time I see Tico because his nose tells me a woman gave him what for he may look butch but he oh so aint lol give them all a kiss from me take care bye for now Bev
A pic of the babies dad, Tico. If you look at his poor nose you will see a piece of it missing that Bev is referring to. His best friend, Lady Morgain decided he was too pushy and she doesn't really like him as a mate (she loves him as a friend and yes poleys can and do choose who they think is a good mate). She bit his poor nose. He will be forever scarred poor lad :face: Don't feel too sorry for the sorry sod. He doesn't really live a rough life at all ciao
LoL you have to admit Heather its a beautiful love bite ! its as if she is saying hey bud I love you just letting the local ladies know your mine but I aint going to give you what you want this is simply a platonic relationship so dont get pushy again or it may not be your nose that gets a love bite next time ! lol you have to love her especially when you think of the size difference lol and hey there is no way you can ever mix him up with anyone his nose is his identity tag lol and he can always wear it with pride knowing he took on the whirlwind and survived and boy is she one whirlwind lol give them all a kiss from me take care bye for now Bev
He does wear his war wounds well lol. She is a wild child that wee Lady Mo. She's wearing just a bit more weight (winter) which makes her look gorgeous. She was on a spin yesterday when she first got upstairs. She was everywhere at once. Poor Tico finally laid down in the middle of the hallway and let her use him as a floor mat. She was charging up and down the hallway, the tube, in and out of the office, but so fast she was just a streak. He tried twice to keep up with her and finally gave up in frustration. If he's ever going to catch her it's going to have to be when she's dead asleep. ciao
