Thank you Mike. That's IT!
I knew it was a weird name with an L... and with breeding season going nuts

Lysodren would indeed have been the med this vet gave him for Insulinoma and
the ferrets seizures and spells had only worsened them.
I did tell them I am NOT a vet and can not make any treatment BUT if this
ferret was being turned into rescue, *I* would take it off that ASAP and
take it to a better vet for proper treatment of Insulinoma. To my knowledge,
they did just that.
