After a long hiatus, PartyFowl Pets is back in business! While we are catching up with our previous orders from our old Etsy shop, we've built our new home here at partyfowlpets.com! Last August, Nettie (PartyFowl Pet's seamstress) contracted Norovirus, then Salmonella. The first illness slowed poor Nettie down, but the Salmonella took her out. The life-threatening illness landed Nettie in the hospital for a long, miserable stay. She had to be careful not to transmit her illness to her pet ducks, as they were not the source of her illness (they get yearly checkups with blood work). Nettie resisted going to the hospital, as Ming Mei required daily medication that she only allowed Nettie to administer. Thankfully, the night staff at the hospital allowed Alex to quietly bring the ducks to Nettie's hospital room so she wouldn't miss a dose. There were some very scary, life-threatening symptoms, but Nettie pulled through. It's been a long recovery, but Nettie is feeling more like her self again!
