My beautiful ferret Sadie, which I have blogged about in the past, has Insulinoma. I'm having a hard time coping with this. The rest of this post may bore you to death, so feel free to stop reading, although at the end of this post you will see how this all connects to low-carb.
Nothing is surer to cause terror in the heart of a ferret owner than the diagnosis: Insulinoma.
So if I'm understanding this correctly, it will be best to put Sadie on a low-carb diet. That shouldn't surprise me in the least. She is a carnivore by nature. She got her first does of prednisolone yesterday. We'll continue to give her these doses once a day until she dies. I'm honestly praying for a miracle as far as the tumor is concerned. The surgery is pricey and not at all in our budget. I don't know what to do about it. God will have to give me direction.
Please pray for my girl Sadie, and for our family. My children have been crying, worried they were going to lose their beloved pet. I've been crying as well. I'm crying as I type this. She's been such a wonderful part of our lives for the last 4 years. We've had her since she was a baby. We'd all be lost without her.
