Need many. many vibes for Shoops

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
We noticed Saturday that Shoops (our Male ferret who is about 10 years old) was straining to go potty but couldn't. This continued to get worse all night as he would move from spot to spot and try again. Over Sunday and yesterday he wouldn't eat but did drink some water. He just looked so sick I honestly didn't think he'd make it to today.

Our regular vet doesn't have Sunday hours so my sister tried desperately to find a vet who would see him and she would up calling 12 different vets but they either weren't in or didn't work with ferrets.

Then Monday at the vet clinic we use, the ferret doc wasn't in so he had an emergecy appt this morning. His adrenal(s) are very enlarged and it is affecting his prostate. He isn't in good enough health right now for surgery.

They are keeping him and giving him fluids and will try to get his strength up enough so he can withstand the surgery.

Vibes would be very appreciated.

Thanks for reading.

Here's his pic

Thanks everyone. He may be at the vet for a week so it will be a long ordeal for him. I'll keep you updated as I find things out.

Thanks so much for the good vibes everyone!!

Shoops had his surgery today and it went well. The vet was very pleased with how well he did! He is being kept over night to be given pain meds and antibiotics. He may be coming home tomorrow.

My sister and I went to see him this evening and he was still out of it from the pain meds and anesthesia but he looked good and his incision looked good.

Only yucky thing was the vet had to show us Shoop's tumor, it was about the size of a small grape!

Thanks again everyone!
