Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Excessive Itching

Funnily enough our albino female (she's about 8 or 9
years old) has recently started to itch furiously at
times. When I pick her up she starts her "frenetic
nibbling" (as Fara Shimbo puts it so well) on my face
and hair.

I am a little nervous that it might be pruritis and if
it is, would that be a precursor to adrenal problems?
