Good Bye Clover.

Today we had to put our ferret Clover to sleep. She had been sick for a while and on medicine but over the weekend she went downhill. We took her to the emergency vet and they were able to stabilize her and give her something for her pain. They let us know that she wasn't doing well and that we would have to get her into the vet as soon as possible on Monday.

I took her in today right after they opened our vet clinic was amazing and worked us in. The vet was amazed how much worse she was doing in the week since she had last seen her. They were going to run some tests and see what was wrong and what our options were. I left her there in the best hands I could. They called me a few hours later to let me  know what they had found. The vet said she was going down hill and that they had discovered that it appeared that she had cancer causing all her problems. Unfortunately she was so sick the she wouldn't be able to survive surgery and even if she did the cancer had already spread and there was a good chance that removing it would damage the surrounding area and would make her worse.

We had run out of options for treatment and we were left with a very sick little ferret in a lot of pain who was just wasting away. As much as we hated it we only had one option left to take care of her as best as we could. So today we had to say good bye to our small little wonderful friend. 


  1. So sorry to hear this. You are an excellent ferret owner and took care of her to the end!
