I am sad to announce that both Dakota & Spaz , the Ft Dix Duo, have gone on to the Bridge.
Dakota after having had adrenal surgery, had been being treated for an irritable bowel issue; he'd been improving, until one evening when he began vomiting,. His abdomen became distended- he couldn't pass food from his stomach thru his duodenum. He was begun on syringe liquids and Dr was alerted that we'd be in first thing.
I got him to the vet within hours, but he seized gently and left in my arms before Dr could see him.

Spaz of the surly manner, had been irritable lately, I had been so focused on Dakota that I missed that he wasn't eating properly, and passing dark stools. He was begun on soft foods, and liquids immediately. He got round the clock feedings for 24 hours, until he began passing.frank blood in his stool. In the wee hours I rushed him towards home (we'd been away) frantically calling emergency Vets along the way- none would tackle a ferret problem, but I at least got one of my old Vets to sell me some sub-Q fluids.
We got home that Sunday morning with none to assist us, Spaz quietly left in my arms, a scant 2 days after his life-long friend Dakota.
