It is fine to bathe her. Use normal precautions as for bathing any ferret
(keep her warm, avoid getting anything in her eyes, ears, nose, mouth, etc).
I would use a moisturizing shampoo, as her skin is probably pretty dry.
Remember that her skin odor is increased dur to the adrenal disease, and will
decrease to some degree following the surgery, once her skin has a chance to
become more normal.
