Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] swollen head?

<I have a 6 month old female ferret. She has been very lethargic, and
<recently her head has become swollen. It literally looks like her
<hed is swollen. I am taking her to the vet on Sat. but wondered
<what could possibly be wrong!? I am so worried!

She is so young, that I can't think of what is wrong., but a "very
lethargic", young ferret needs a full exam by the vet, throw in
the swelling and I am worried too. Can you bring her there
tomorrow instead of friday?
The ferrets are "fragile", especially at such a young age, and if
it is juvenile lymphoma of some form, then there isn't much
you coud do, but if it is an infection that can be treated
the sooner the better.

Good luck, and keep us posted.
