Tyler
 
Tyler Originally named Alfredo, was an Animal Control release from an owner surrender in September í13. He came in with a buddy named Alfonzo. Both were about 2 1/2 years old. They were renamed Tyler & Jagger after finding out they did not like their prior names. Unfortunately during their intake exam, Jagger was found to be riddled with tumors, in sever pain, and was passing blood. He was given mercy as I held him telling him about the Rainbow Bridge.

Tyler was very stoic and was found to have low BG & an intestinal infection. He was treated with two antibiotics & scheduled back for a recheck after 2 weeks. His recheck was great, his BG tested in the normal range and he was back to normal ferret behavior. Iím sure he misses his original buddy but has made many new friends here.

Tyler is a big Vivify fan. He also would love his own bag of N-bones that he won't have to share with any of his new buddies. He eats a modest amount of kibble but does enjoy the mixture of TF Turkey/Venison & Natural Gold Ferret Food. As a treat Tyler enjoys 8in1 Soft/moist Ultimate Ferret food. A gift of any of those or a gift certificate to any of the following online stores would be greatly appreciated: Dr.s Foster & Smith, the Ferret Depot, or Ferret dot com.

The BLFSH has been serving the SW & portions of Central VA since 2005. We network with other shelters that may be geographically closer to the ferret in need than us. The same holds true for adoption requests
We're see a large number of Insulinomic ferrets coming into the shelter. Our Veterinarian, Dr. Mark Finkler is very active in looking for proactive treatment for ferrets and we are hoping to see some new advances in Insulinoma treatment as what has been found in Adrenal treatments.
Vet Bills Can Be Paid At:
Dr. Bridget Hickman & Dr. Mark Finkler

Tyler has a Santa.
