Enough time has passed that I can now share with you that Scrappy took a turn for the worse and crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Scrappy had dislocated her shoulder when her front paw was caught in the shelf of her Ferret Nation cage.
She did so well at first. She received four laser treatments and they really helped. I don’t know what happened. She turned her nose up at her duck soup one night. She had a bit of blood in her urine, so I made an appointment to see the vet thinking she had a bladder infection. I started her on amoxi for the weekend till the Monday appointment.
On the Saturday, while doing water therapy she had an episode of trouble breathing but recovered. Later on I did her massage therapy and again she had an episode of struggling to breath and before I could do anything, she stopped breathing. I could not bring her back. She died in my arms.
I blamed myself. I thought my massage therapy must of pinched a nerve and stopped her breathing. My vet has spoken with me and feels that she had a sudden brain bleed. I have to trust he is right because the alternative that I did this is more than I can bear.
She is whole again, chasing her stuffies with her friends at the Rainbow Bridge. Bee, another very precious old gal passed only a few days before Scrappy, so I know they are together.
All the cages now have the updated SAFE shelving. No other furry will get hurt. That is her legacy.
