Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Re: vaccine reaction

My name is Donna, My daughter has a ferret that has
had a mass(or lump) come up right above her left eye,
we are not sure what it is but we have had vet tell us
that it is an ingrown hair, after we had her to a vet
in our town that performed a procedure on her to drain
it and flush it out which it has returned. And to this
day we don't know what it causing it to come back, she
has very severe sneezing attacks, and it itches
terribly, her eye also water's alot, we get a warm wet
rag for her to rub her nose on as well as to wipe her
face cause it tends to help to releive it somewhat. If
anyone has any ideas as to what may be causing this
please message me back. She was also on an
for any infection that might come of it. Thank-You,
Donna--- "Bruce Williams, DVM"
