OK - here's a good one -ask him what texts he likes for ferret
diseases, and if he subscribes to any online information sources. How
often does he go to meetings and has he ever attended any ferret

If he talks about Cushing's disease, or wants to do a skin scraping
on an animals with bilateral hair loss and a swollen vulva - well,
that is not a great sign....

With kindest regards,
