I would agree with what has been said about the duration of regrowth of
hair in ferrets who have had adrenal surgery... every ferret is
different . The way the hair comes back also varies from ferret to
ferret. I've had them on both ends of the scale... Sammy, had a left
adrenalectomy, who I swear sprouted hair the day after surgery, his hair
sprouted up all over very equally. Spaz (bilateral adrenalectomy) took a
good 7 months to finally grow his, and his sides filled in before his
back or tummy. Bella is still trying after her bilateral and then some
adrenal surgery, but her previously bald tail is the most lush thing
about her right now. I suspect that there may be other things going on,
but I can see she is trying to fill in the bald patches on her back end.
I've read of cases that took an entire year for hair regrowth after an
