Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Re: Cataract Questions

Hi Angela,
Regardless of the ferret's age you should have your
ferret's eyes checked. Juvenile cataracts can be either
congenital or hereditary in origin. Cataracts in adults can
be a sign of an insulinoma. It is time to find out if the ferret
has cataracts, time to check for causes of the cataracts, and
time to talk about cataract surgery.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
