Well, if you look a the images that we have used so far - a nice
picture of a ferret surgery, a ruptured spleen, and now ulcers - we
are looking for images with a medical bent that illustrate a medical
point and may help either owners or vets make a diagnosis at some
point in the future.

When you say stomach, do you mean stomach or abdomen? A picture of a
big abdomen in a ferret, because it can be so many different things
would not be of a lot of value, but a picture of the radiograph of
this ferrets chest may have a lot of useful educational information
on it.

High quality, detailed pictures of something as simple as a chordoma
or a mast cell tumor are things that most ferret owners will at some
time, have the opportunity to provide, and with a little care, can
yield a tremendously useful educational tool.

With kindest regards,
