Hi Lynda:

Thanks for the heads-up re ADV and ECE.
My ferrets have only socialized with two other groups of
ferrets - however one never knows. I will keep this
information in mind when I look after other ferrets as well as
if I bring any new ferrets into my group of grumpy old men
-(all between 4 and 6 and all but one have had adrenal
surgery.) The only female, (also 6 and post adrenal surgery)is
too good to socialize with them, rather she lives by herself
in my bedroom (quite the spoilt little queen)

Maybe on the West Coast there is no ADV or ECE problems but I
took the questions to one of my trusted Guru's, Harley Bug's
Mom, Randy. With her permission here is her comments
" ECE is well into Canada and the experts actually
think it
originated here in our mass breeders. As for ADV it
is here in mink farms,
but i don't know of any ferrets cases. people are
very naive to think it's
not here or that it won't hit us at some point."
