Subject: Michelle, prednisone

Michelle, for a long time Prednisone was the only option for treating
a ferret with lympho. The first time we encountered lymphoma in an
adult ferret the treating hospital offered to put her down
immediately. We instead insisted on finding some option. With
Prednisone alone she got another 8 months which is a significant
amount of time in a ferret's life. I hope that this helps you see
that this medication is not one to really rule out.
