Well, this is a photo of the abdomen of a ferret with insulinoma
and cardiomypathy. Combination of medications and fluid retention
turned a 2.5 lb ferret into a 6.85 lb ferret. Urine burns from hind
end paralysis, swollen lymph nodes, etc etc?

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 -
are looking for images with a medical bent that illustrate a
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
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
on it.
High quality, detailed pictures of something as simple as a
or a mast cell tumor are things that most ferret owners will at
time, have the opportunity to provide, and with a little care, can

yield a tremendously useful educational tool.

With kindest regards,
