My poor little Fred is not feeling well 😭😭😭
I went to the vet with him today as I suspected a (huge) infection in his eye, but the vet thinks it might be inside his jaw, causing his little face to swell up like this.
As ferrets aren't the friendliest of species when it comes to getting examined by the vet (who can blame them huh?) and Fred already pooped, peed and vomited all over me AND the vet, we decided it's best if we give him some anaesthetics before continuing the treatment.
For now, I'm sent home with antibiotics and I will continue giving him painkillers. Poor sweetie is all stressed out!
Being healthy is important, but so is being happy and enjoying yourself! You wanna go run a marathon? Do it! You wanna eat that donut? Do it! You wanna take a painting class? Do it! The important thing is to love yourself and keep balance in your life. You probably shouldn't eat just chocolate bars, but working yourself into an "I need to be 100% healthy ALL the time" mentality isn't good either. Strive for healthiness, but dont deny yourself the things you want either! Be yourself, and dont worry if you're not ____ enough. The people who matter will love you no matter what :) Just look at me! I'm a little pudgy, I smell sometimes, I probably eat too many egg yolks, but my friends and family love me all the same! Just be you :) -Fergus
