Ryan came in with Rachel. They were surrendered to a vet’s office. The owners could not afford treatment for them so decided to put them down instead. The vet convinced the owners to surrender the ferrets to the vet and then called our shelter instead, and we are so happy they did because we couldn’t imagine anything bad happening to our sweet little boy. Ryan was diagnosed with insulinoma and adrenal disease by the vet who saw them before and is now on medicine to help slow down his condition. When he first came in Ryan was a real fire cracker but sadly he moves slower and slower these days. He was placed in a group with four other old babies that move at the same pace and seems to be enjoying his retirement.
Ryan is your typical old man. He likes naps in cubes and beds and loves to snuggle down inside thick fuzzy blankets. Also, like any other ferret he loves treats, but especially peanut butter bandits. He just can’t get enough. Like some of his other cage mates and shelter friends he is awaiting his deslorelin implant. Any donation to the shelter or our vet account would really help him and his buddies.
