    Sorry to hear about Star. I don’t think the barium meal was the cause of her vomiting, it’s likely whatever’s underlying this caused her to vomit up the barium. All the best, I hope Star is comfortable otherwise.

    If she is dehydrated why don’t they give her IV fluids? I don’t understand why they want to keep forcing her to drink if she’s not holding it down.

    Last time my cat got super sick and dehydrated he stayed overnight at the vet and they gave him the IV fluids, worked wonders. Maybe ferrets are too small for that?

    I’m so sorry! I really hope she’ll pull through. I thought for sure she might have been constipated because bunnies get like that too. If bunnies don’t eat, drink or poop, it’s probably because they have ingested fur and it’s blocking their intestines. It’s usually easy to fix by giving them fresh pineapple juice or bromelain which contain enzymes to break up the fur. I wonder if the antibiotics that the vet gave has steroids in it. Usually that will help, too. I’m praying for a good outcome!

      Yeah i was so convinced she had some sorta blockage, but xrays say no and she really has all the symptoms of gastritis. If i’d known on sat i could’ve treated it straightaway! 🙁

    oh dear… i hope a miracle will happen real soon. i can totally understand how you feel, the last time my dog gave my rabbit a shock and my rabbit suddenly screamed and collapsed, i rushed her to the vet and it was a “heart attack” and she was paralysed.. i had to put her to sleep. ;(

    i hope she has improved by now! 😉 hugs

    Hugs. I hope she feels better soon. I agree with the suggestion to put her on IV if she’s throwing up so much.

    Try to get some extra nutrition in yourself too, since you’re up most of the night worrying and force-feeding her.

    Take care.

    Both of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
