Alicia, with our server down regionally you will likely hear from the
rest of the civilized universe before you do from us, but if your vet
figures that you are facing a situation in which it is either an
adrenal growth or a botched spay you'd need to go in, anyway.

BTW, 3 or 4 years old is an age in which adrenal tumors can be found
with ferrets from a multitude of breeders.

Sorry about this being late. Server down for over 24 hours now. Don't
know quite when will send this.
