Subject: My ferret is ill?


I am new to this group. My question is regarding the health
of my four year old female (Kimmi).

About two weeks ago I notice that she was gaining some weight.
I was away on vacation for 10 days and just came back
yesterday. When picking her up from the "sitter" I notice
that her belly is very big and swollen looking. She is not
listless nor has diarrea. The only other symptom is that she
has lost some of the hair on her stomache and tail, but that
was about 3 or 4 months ago. The hair loss happened before
and she grew it all back again.

Any diagnoses? This would be of great help and I do plan on
taking her to the vet as soon as possible!

Thanks a bunch!
