Subject: Adrenal stink?

Hi folks. I was wondering, when your ferret has odor from
adrenal, is it all over or based around the ears. I have a 4
yo male who's head stinks, I clean his ears faithfully each
week. He has always been aggressive, has no hair loss. He as
recently started packing on the pounds. I noticed in one of
Dr. Williams posts that weight gain and a "pear" shape can be
a sign of adrenal in an older ferret.

Anyone have any idea on the smell?
