    Anyone have ferrets? I need help!

    Not sure who read my post where one of my ferrets got killed, but I had 2 and they were cagemates. One got killed and left the other alone (Jasper). I got 2 more so he wouldnt be alone. He HATES them. He was eating ok, but now he isnt eating. He is depressed, I guess. He has an adrenal tumor and I think the stress of all this has exacerbated his adrenal condition. Anyone have any advice? Im afraid he is going to die at this rate. All he does is sleep. He wont play anymore at all and he used to be so active. I need to take him to the vet, but I cant get off work to take him (closest capable vet is 1 1/2 hours away). Im going to try to take him sometime this week but not sure what to do in the meantime. I dont think I can handle losing another one, they are my babies. Anyone ever gone thru this? If so, what did you do?

    medical shows today...relatable or rediculous?

    I hadnt watched Hawthorne, but after reading this thread I have sat up all night watching the first 5 episodes. And let me tell ya, it is the worst show Ive seen....SO UNREALISTIC. I do like nurse jackie, its just plain funny, but again....not realistic. Now I guess I better try to get some sleep. Thanks alot guys for starting this thread, lol. :) just kidding. Its now 4:15 am and I wasted my time watching that show. good night

    I did CPR on my ferret

    I live in Kentucky and I agree that this place is full of bad vibes. My husband's friend just got killed, then his family got killed on their way home from his funeral. BAD BAD past 2 weeks. My ferrets are still fighting like crazy, but Im being patient with them. I put their cages up next to each other so they can interract without fighting. Someone is going to give me another ferret (Id have a house full of them if I could, lol). They are the most amazing pets and so loving and sweet. They play like kittens but romp like puppies, then fall asleep in my lap. I love them so much. I still miss my jasmine. I have dreams about her. My pomeranian dog plays with them too, but she is very careful with them. Its like she knows not to hurt them. My outside dogs who killed her, I just cant stomach to be around them anymore. So they are feeling left out and hurt. I know they didnt know what they were doing, but still.

    I did CPR on my ferret

    Thank you everyone for your kind words. Im having such a hard time with this. Its now 3 am and I cant sleep. I had another crying fit earlier, I still cant get the sound her her screaming out of my head and it breaks my heart. Everytime my boy ferret attacks one of the new ferrets, they scream and it brings it all back again. This is so hard. And to top it off, yesterday I came upon a wreck as I was on my way into the office and had to assist. An elderly couple was hit by a drunk driver. The drunk driver walked away from the accident, while the elderly man died. His wife may not make it. This has been such a bad week for me. Im so lucky to have this place to come to. There are such wonderful people on here. I thank you so much. It makes it easier to come here and read and interract. Thank you.

    I had no idea there was a pets section on allnurses. This place is perfect! :) Thank you ALL for your responses. I so much appreciate having all of you here for support. It means so much. Im still trying to get through it. It was such a tragic event and I cant get it out of my mind. :( Oh, Im getting ANOTHER ferret on friday! So she will make 4 ferrets! Im in ferret heaven. Just if I had my Jasmine here with me too.

    I know people look at things differently. So Im just going to try to understand that you are unable to love a pet as deeply as some do, which makes you unable to understand my actions to save my furbaby, which is why you found it "weird". I just hope that if you have any pets, you can find it within your heart to do whats needed if/when one of them becomes sick. Again, thanks to everyone who posted support. Im still very sad and still have moments wondering how Im going to get through this. My pets are family and I can still hear her screaming for help when it happened. I am going to get another ferret on friday in hopes that my jasper (the one left behind) will like her. Ive read that alot of ferrets will grieve themself to death after the death of their cage-mate. Im soooo worried about him. Thanks again to my allnurse friends, I love you all. :redbeathe

    I did CPR on my ferret

    Thank you everyone for your comments and support. I really appreciate it. My pets are my family and anyone who has a pet needs to take care of them as so. Im still very traumatied and sad. My ferret who is left behind isnt eating well and wont play, so Im worried about him. Pets are just like people, only smaller....the medicines are the same as humans, their anatomy is very close to ours, they have lungs and a heart, so CPR is basically like on a human....you just have to be careful and be easier with them. I once saved a kitten by doing CPR. Im still very sad. Ive cried for days. I got 2 more ferrets for my little boy ferret, trying to ease his pain, but he hates the 2 new furbabies. Thanks to you all who understand. I feel like Im all alone in this because my husband just doesnt understand. My animals are my family and I just dont know how Im going to get over this.

    I did CPR on my ferret

    Yes, you read that right. My dog attacked my ferret (I accidently left my door open and she got outside). I brought her in and loved on her,I thought she was ok, but then she stopped moving. She was barely breathing so I started CPR. She died after 15 minutes. I once saved a kitten by doing CPR so I was sooooo hoping I could save my little Jasmine. She died. Ive cried all weekend. :crying2::redbeathe. Im so sad.

    Nurses dating Doctors

    And yet ANOTHER post from this poster about nurses/doctors relationships. She really is obsessed with this. :yawn: Find something constructive to focus on.

    No more "Nurse Jackie"?

    I finally broke down and purchased Showtime so I could watch this and now it isnt on anymore? I have been watching it online, but I got a virus on my computer from doing that. Does anyone know if there will be anymore episodes of Nurse Jackie? I LOVE that show!
