Brett, the Pet of the Day
Name: Brett
Age: Eight and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: Escanaba, Michigan, USA
   Brett "I'm Beautiful" Chinchilla Brett is our little buddy of eight and a half years. (He will be nine this coming March.) We almost lost him this year. He had stopped eating. After a thorough exam and x-rays of his entire body, blood tests, etc., that showed nothing wrong, our vet suggested we try just one more thing - give him a tiny bit of antacid. Within an hour, he started eating! Diagnosis: ulcer. With the addition of Pepcid twice a day and nutrients to help him regain his health, he is now back to his normal, (a little bit arrogant) lovable self. He loves to sit on my shoulder, my back (or on my tummy when I'm exercising!) He has such a strong personality, loves to tease and will come to you when you call his name. What a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas gift - to still have him with us!
