Subject: Re: Thinning fur

Do you see any thing that looks like Black Heads (acne)? A slightly
orangey crust? It is probably something commonly know as "rattail".
The best wasy to take care of it is to keep it clean by washing every
other day with noxzema or someother mild acne soap. If you start on
it early it may clear up before any more hair is lost. If hair loss
continues or you see other signs that this may be something other
than acne then by all means get you ferret to a vet for a checkup.
