Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Re:Adrenal gland disease

Hi Marie,
Nice to talk to someone from Sweden. In regard to
adrenal gland disease in Sweden, I have some husbandry
questions for you.
What age are they spaying/neutering ferrets in Sweden?
Do they keep them outside (natural photoperiods) or do
they keep them inside (long photoperiods)?
About insulinomas in Sweden, what do they
feed ferrets in Sweden (whole prey or dry commercial food)?

I still think adrenal gland disease is related to early spay/neuter
and being kept indoors under long photoperiods.
