Today I lost one of my ferrets Sable. She was almost 6 years old. I took her in for what I thought was IBS symptoms.
They did an xray, and found that she had fluid accumulation in her abdomen, and a very large mass on her heart.
The vet said that it was malignant, as they found some other strange things on her liver and kidneys.
The vet said that she could be put on prednisone to help her feel better and give her more time but I decided not to.
I decided to euthanize her, as she couldn't even drink water and I thought it was cruel to keep her alive for my sake knowing what was going on.
I hope I made the right choice. I still have one ferret left, I hope he will be alright without her. I miss her a lot. I was there when she got euthanized, I saw her take her last hard breaths. My heart is broken.
DIP Sable, you always knew how to make me laugh and smile when I was feeling down. You were quite the little rascal, but I love you a lot. I hope you understand.
