Subject: cholangiohepatitis


My ferret ( Stubby 5 y/o male rescue) recently had surgery for
several problems to include insulinoma, adrenal and a couple enlarged
lymph nodes and via a biopsy of the liver during the surgery was
diagnosed with cholangiohepatitis. According to my vet he is seeing
more and more of this type of hepatitis. Once Stubby recovers from
surgery he will likely be put on prednisone and continue with an
antibiotic. Has anybody heard of cholangiohepatitis in ferrets?? I
would be interested in the cause and possible prognosis for a ferret
with this illness.
