I'm so sorry... Did you get to find out what it was? Either way, I wish you luck in recovering, losing a pet is hard.. I was really hoping he'd make it, he really didn't deserve to go. I hope you're doing alright, just remember that it'll be okay.
The vet said his lymph nodes felt enlarged and could be the cause before we went ahead with x-rays. She then told me the other possibilities, slip disk, tumor... And said she thinks he's older than 5 which I don't doubt. The previous owners weren't very good with dengar and rex. They didn't even know that they're deaf. Because of his age, if it is something that is fixable it will be a long recovery and it may or not fix him. On top of that, I would have to cage him and keep him seperate from the room so he can't injure himself again if it was slipped disk. Because of covid I couldn't be there with him in his final moments. The vet said that they have a nice blanket for him and it will be peaceful and painless. They let me spend time with him in a room before they took him. They were very amazing and I'm happy to have found her. If I can't see my vet then she would be my next choice. They were very compassionate.
I miss him so much. I can't stop crying. I would always help him eat so they other ferrets didn't eat his soup. He got to play outside of the room when I made his food. He only learned how to go downstairs a month ago and he was so happy to find the dirty clothes in the laundry room. He loved going into my large plants and throwing dirt everywhere. He always had an innocent clueless look on his face. I'm going to miss him looking at me and then jumping at my legs. I'm going to miss making him Denny's breakfast. I'm going to miss him falling asleep in my arms. I feel like a piece of me is gone. I'm having a really hard time. I didn't expect him to leave so quickly.
::huggs:: I know how it hurts. I wish there was something we could to to make it stop. I miss Scamp so bad sometimes I still lose it when I see a pic and it's been a year. he never made it to 3 but he was something special. Just hand on to the happy times.
Oh Auura, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I'm sorry I wasn't on here sooner. You did everything you could. You gave Dengar a life that showed him love, even if it was only a short time. You made his last year for him better then what he had with his pervious owner. Yes, they do take a piece of us with them when they go. He will be waiting for you at Rainbow Bridge with all the other precious pets that have moved on. Hold tight of those memories you have of him and the love that touched your heart. I feel no matter how much we have done for them, they have done so much more for us. Hugs to you and your wee fuzzies. DIP Dengar.
