luvlymilk asked: “Hi! I just read that your ferret Jack has an enlarged heart. How is he? Is it hard to take care of? My ferret was diagnosed with the same on new years eve, he is 11 months old and has a very severe case. Tomorrow he is having his follow up appointment that im not very confident about (its either an ekg or soon "last meal" According to my vet) , so i'd like to know your opinion.”
Hello! I am so sorry to hear about your ferret. =(
Jack was basically left in the back of a pet store hopped up on meds and left to die. 2 years later, he is off his meds and running around like all of the other crazy ferrets. Sometimes he needs to stop and rest when his breathing gets too heavy, but that is less and less often. However, I think he might be a special case. From what I was told, enlarged hearts cannot be healed but helped with medication so I would ask about your options for medication so you can make your ferret comfortable and live out the rest of his days in a happy home. Good luck, I hope everything works out!
