Doesn't have to be anything fancy. I could also add something to the ovarian cysts and Snowflake's spay page after I have more details.
Edit - doing a search on ferrets and chemical spays, I ran across mention of an implant that lasts at full effect about a year. So it may be something like a slow release drug that is not permanent.
Unfortunately I only saw a nurse yesterday rather than the vet who carried out the treatment, so I'm going to ask if they can send me some information in order to write up a full report on the procedure.
Squee is now back home and eating normally - she seems completely nonplussed, which is pretty much her standard attitude to life it seems. Fingers crossed everything will go to plan over the next few weeks!
Squee was separated from the others for a week to let her recover from the procedure and let her incision heal up.
This morning I put her back in with the others after a cage clean and all hell broke loose.
Nibbler really went for Squee which in turn riled up Chubbles.. long story shor poor Squee has a puncture wound on the right side of her mouth and was bleeding profusely (her poor wee mouth was filling up with blood :( ). I've cleaned/compressed it with saline solution which I'll repeat after work. I have baytril & metacam in case it gets infected or forms an abscess elsewhere (which is what happened last time she got bitten).
Even after separating Squee back out Chubbles was still irate and kept attacking Nibbler, so now Chubbles is separate too!
So my little family is torn apart atm. I hope a buddy bath & floor time later today will settle things.
Any other suggestions? I mean, Squee must smell different now because of her massive hormone change, but she was only separated by grids in the cage, so they knew she was there?? Strange wee critters.
Squee seems ok and her bite has healed up well, no swelling or hotness. Fingers crossed!
