Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] vaccine reaction lump remains 10
weeks later

Hi Deena,
I do not want to scare you, but if a local reaction site
is still present 10 weeks later then it is time to remove it.
It is probably a local reaction, but it could be the early stage
of a sarcoma. It is best to remove it now and find out for sure
what is causing the problem.
Even though I was the one to report a sarcoma, other vets have
also seen this problem. Fortunately it is still a rare condition.
Hope that hepls,
Jerry Murray, DVM
