Yesturday morning I walked into my hot room as I usally do every morning. Everybody seemed to be fine. I went out for a few hours and came back and looked in my room again. I noticed that my yearling Canebrake had been laying dead in her cage. She was fine in the morning and was moving around as if she where looking for food. She is a Cb yearling that I have had since October. I know the person well that I got her from and he bred them. I immediatly shipped the body off to the University of Florida in Gainsville for necropsy. The pathologist called me this afternoon and told me that the animal was in overall excellent health and the lung and GI tract where clear. They did notice white spots on the liver and took samples to test. They believe it to be some bacteria and that it is most likly an isolated problem. Does anybody have any idea's on this? I was very worried about paramixal but the doctors said that usally the lung would have lesions and none where present.
