Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Bad Breath/urine problems??

My name is Donna Lee, I live in
Batesville, Arkansas. My daughter has a ferret that
has recently been through alot with a lump on her
head, she has acted exactly as you have described. In
regards to the finding a vet & the questions to ask
him, can you tell me where you are located in what
state & what town? I may be able to help you if I
know where you live. Please e-mail me back. Thanks,
Donna Lee
