Subject: Re: Aplastic Anemia

After responding to Anne-Marte's post about
aplastic anemia, I started wondering just what the
difference is between "anemia" and "aplastic
anemia". I assumed that she was talking about a
female in heat but wonder if that is a correct
assumption. She never actually said her ferret
was in heat. A hormone injection was administered
but could that be done to assist a ferret with
adrenal symptoms?

Can someone explain the difference? Are they
interchangeable or are there different "types" of
anemia? Are they treated the same,

Hope I didn't sound too stupid in my last post.
And, I hope I didn't give bad advice (Lixotinic,
etc.) I made a number of assumptions that I
probably shouldn't have.

Would love for someone to clarify for me.
