Subject: [Ferret-Health-list] hair thinning and limp

I grew up across the mountain in Waynesboro. and now live further north near

Both Diane and I would recommend driving over to Lakeridge/Woodbridge and
seeing Dr. Kawasaki at Old Bridge Veterinary hospital. We drive there for
our ferrets ( and occaisionally other critters). He's been treating ferrets
for a long time. I think he even got mentioned by Dr. Williams not too long
ago about a study on retinal strophy.
