Tigger Tigger has been with us since he was a baby. He came in from a local pet store when he presented with extreme weight loss and dehydration, he was also chewing and eating fabric but he would not eat his food! We took him to the vet and we discovered he had problems opening and closing his jaw properly, it seemed to be injured in some way. This jaw issue was keeping him from being able to chew hard food and he was slowly starving to death,

After several weeks of soup and his being mothered by an older ferret, Jazzy, he started doing much better. Although his jaw still seems to trouble him still, it gets almost stuck sometimes, and he has trouble getting it to close properly or comfortably but he is eating and doing well. He eats mostly soup but does eat some hard food too. He lost his adoptive ferret mom Jazzy earlier this year though and he has been a little depressed and not nearly as playful plus he also seems to need bottle feeding more often as he loves the one on one attention and cuddles. He also is now in the free roam ferret room with several female ferrets who he is now buddies with. He is starting to play a bit more and hopefully will be ok

He does have bare, almost fur-less feet which we are currently looking into, believing it may be a sign of adrenal or lymphoma of the skin. Tigger will grab and eat N-bones, and he uses tubes, tunnels and sleep sacks. He is not caged, mostly free roam in the ferret room, so he does not use hammocks as much.
