Well we KNEW this already.... But DNA comfirmed Mink is a girl of course.
All viral tests came back negative (which I was confident considering where I got her) but still a relief to formally hear it.
On a separate note for my boy Twigs - he had a Culture & Sensitivity, and a fecal, for symptoms such as slightly softer than normal poop (on occasion), and his crop seems to bulge (sometimes, not always) with slow digesting food.
His results showed NO abnormal types of bacteria either from the crop or fecal. I was surprised that he is now 38 grams (and he is not a large framed pet type). I need to keep him away from my parrots' food bowls where he gorges himself on their Harrison's pellets nightly (he has his own too).
At this point, my vet thinks his problem is from overeating. I HOPE that is all. I'm paranoid because his friend died from overeating due to what they thought was thyroid problems (bad genetics), where his hunger mechanism wouldn't turn off, which in turn cause a plethora of other problems. This doesn't seem like the same thing going on, but still can't help but be a little worried.
He's on organic unfiltered ACV in the water, so hopefully that helps with his crop. He also has probiotics (made by Harrison's) but it doesn't stick to his food too well.
