Trip to the Vets

Logan's first trip to the vets for his distemper and rabbies shot's ended almost in a disaster. He left the house in his carry case, already he was digging at the cage door, he did not like trapped inside, he is a very free spirited ferret.

When he arrived at the vets he went right in the room, he had a short wait, Logan was very upset at being in the cage. The vet came in and checked him over and gave him his distemper shot, they waited a few minutes to make sure he was alright. Sarah took him out to the car, put the cage on the back seat and went back in to pay the vet.

The vet wanted to take a picture of Logan, they always do this so when you pay your bill a picture will be at the top every time. So Sarah went to the car to get Logan, when she opened the cage Logan was lying lifeless on his back, he was rushed back into the office and immediately the vet gave him a shot to help bring him around, when he started to move a little he was given oxygen until he could breath on his own. Logan had to wait a few minutes to make sure he was okay. Sarah was so afraid she was going to have a repeat of Storm.

We had a mess to clean up when they got home, the reaction from the shot made Logan poop all over Sarah and the inside of the cage, not to mention himself, poor baby. We cleaned everything up and hugged Logan and carried him around telling him everything was going to be all right, he was still spitting up. We put him in his hammock in the cage, he slept the rest of the day and night.

I am happy to say this morning he was awake and ready to get out for his fun play, he was so full of it, ran all over and jumped on our leg's. We were happy to see him acting as himself. Dusty woke up to run and play with him. Wedid not let him run more than an hour and he was glad to be put back, he climbed in his hammock and went right to sleep. He is our Christmas miracle, it only took one day for Logan to recover.

I am so glad that Logan is okay. If I were you I won't give him any more of those shots. I've read articles that say rabies shot are good for YEARS and that we are giving our pet WAY too many shots. If Logan stays inside, he doesn't have to worry about getting rabies....I could go on as I agrue with my Vet all the time about shots...
Merry Christmas.

Gosh Logan is a little miracle indeed. What an ordeal for the poor little fella. I am so glad that he's recovered well. Vaccines can be such a shock to little systems.

We'd like to wish you a Very Happy Christmas and a peaceful and safe New Year!

Good will to all living things!

Oh no, Margaret and Charles, what a terrible ordeal for Logan to go through! My sissy Sabrina had a bad reaction to a multiple shot once and had to go back to the vet to get another shot to counteract it, and then she was fine. I am glad Logan is fine too, that is so scary! Me, Sabrina, Sam, Momma and Daddy want to wish you a very Merry Christmas!
Hugs, purrs and headbutts,
