Subject: adrenal cryosurgery

The ferret may or may not need medications, depending on if a tiny
bit of adrenal tissue remains. Ashling is on twice a day Florinef
and Prednisone with excellent results.

Yes, Charlie Weiss's video can be learned about at and it covers a great deal besides cyrosurgery.
