Cliff & I took our two ferrets to the vet today. Conrad was due for his regular checkup and shots. Popcorn - well, we both felt that he was hurting and trying to tell us he was ready to go over the rainbow bridge - so we decided to bring him to the vet also for her opinion.
The doctor agreed with us regarding Popcorn, so we made the really difficult decision that had to be made for him. We loved him so much and didn't want him to be in pain anymore.
Then, Conrad had an awful reaction to his shots - we nearly lost him as well. It was the most awful experience we've ever been through with our kids. They gave him Benedryl and other medicines to try to help him, then they put him in an incubator to keep him warm. We had to leave him at the doctor's office - it was so hard for us to leave. Thankfully, Conrad wasn't ready to leave us yet. He is back home with us and sleeping in his big comfy cage.
What a difficult day we had today.
