      First of all, thanks for *all* of the posts about diltiazem. Very helpful!
      I did not even get around to posting a question about it before the posts
      came rolling in! Wow. Your amazing psychic powers must come from the
      cats, right? :) Especially a BIG "Thanks" to Jill for her story of
      Oliver!!

      Anyways, just wanted to add my little story. After my ferret, Cokie, got
      her first dose of diltiazem she zonked out sleeping for hours. What was
      unusual was that I could pick her up and walk around with her and she would
      hardly stir. Even though this is not *that* unusual for ferrets, it was
      unusual for her! I was worried, and she remained groggier than usual for a
      week or so while getting the diltiazem. We reduced her dose, (from 3.75 to
      3.0 mg 2X day) and after a week (or so) on the smaller dose she is doing
      great! Back to her pre-heart disease activity levels! We also use a gel
      form of diltiazem so that she doesn't have to taste anything--just rub it on
      her skin! (It is really great to have if you're having trouble like I was
      in getting her to take it.)

      That's really all I had to say--Thanks!!

      Celia
