ferret with heart condition

Post  vykky on Fri Aug 06, 2010 3:19 am

my ferret elvis has been recently been diagnosed with a heart murmmer and he needs an ecg exam to look at his heart closer the problem is they dont know what an healthy ferret heart looks like or how big one should be or how thick the walls are ect which means its trial and error with his medication which could be leathal if not correct the only solution my vet could give me was to borrow some one elses ferret so they could compare hearts i dont know anyother ferret owners its also a big ask. ive looked all over the internet for information on ferrets hearts and found very little the vet herself cant find any information herself ive also phoned all local vets and they know nothing vets. im at my wits end and dont know where to turn so i was wondering if any one out there knew anything or had any suggestions. Anything, i would be incredibley greatfull
