Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Partial Hepatectomy
In order to give you answers to your questions,
we will need to know what type of tumor it was.
Did the vet send the tumor out to a pathologist
to make a diagnosis? Once we know what type of
cancer it is, we can give a better prediction of what
to expect in the future.
Some ferrets will be become hypoglycemic after removing
part of the liver, so I would check his glucose level and
add dextrose to his fluids/food if needed.
Hope that helps,
