Subject: heart murmur detectable only under anesthetic

"I mentioned some time ago that Champ's heart seems
to beat really hard. Yesterday, at the vet, Doc
could hear a slight murmur when Champ was under
iso but it went away when he was awake?????
Anyone ever heard of such a thing?"

My dog has a very slight heart murmur detectable only
under the complete relaxation that occurs under
anesthesia. The murmur doesn't go away when she's
awake, it just can't be detected when the animal is
active and awake. It sounds like your ferret might be
the same way.
