Hi! I have four Burms but two of them have had chronic respiratory problems. I have taken them to the vet time and time again. One has been on Amikacin, Baytel and back on Amikacin. I don't have money for what my vet calls a "cocktail" of medicines. The vet said that some times its just "weak genes", from a long line of inbreeding, that causes the reoccurring respiratory in Burms. I just don't have the time and money to continue this anymore. One I have been treating for over a year now. I don't want to euthenies either of them. What can I do with them? I hate to turn them over to a Burm rescue or something because 3 of my four Burms I've rescued my self. I keep their temperatures correct, there housed in large cages with a heating pad and lights. They are on aspen bedding. Everything is correct they just keep getting sick. These Burms are my babies (8 and 11 foot babies) but I just can't keep them any more and still treat them. What can I do with them?
