Subject: Re:Ferret is Zoning...

That was Skippy's first sign of insulinoma. I was on vacation and
the guy that was watching her said that she just zoned out and
started wobbling around. Then it went away.

I didn't see it again until a few weeks later and rushed her to the
vet where they gave her a blood glucose test. That's when we found
out it was to low.

I know skippy is having an episode when she cocks her head and starts
staring into space then she tries to run and falls over.

She would be fine when she was eating but if she stopped eating for
even just a 1/2 day or didn't eat enough she would have an episode
even on prednisone.

She has since had surgery so she's doing much better.
