Subject: [Ferret-Health-list] ADV Poll scary numbers

I was noticing in the poll that none of the ADV positive
ferrets seem to be in Canada. Does this mean that this
disease has not reached Canada yet? or that we just don't test
enough here.
I had not heard a lot about this disease until I joined this
list, and had never known that there was a test for it. My
ferret is a Marshall's ferret, so this has me a bit worried as
he comes from the states. He already is having enough
problems. I would hate to add this to the list.

Ok people who don't have ADV+ ferrets in their homes, please
let it
just be that you haven't voted yet!!! If you haven't please

The percentage for ADV positive ferrets has been holding
steady at 16%
16% is much higher than I had predicted and much higher than
I want
to believe. Hopefully, people affected by ADV first hand
have swarmed
to the polls and the rest of you have been waiting to vote
on Sunday
when the lines are shorter.

The more votes, the more accurate the numbers are going to
be at the
end.... lets get out there and vote!


The picture so far... half of us have never tested... we
don't know.
A third of us have tested within the last year and are
Over 1/8th of us are loving a ferret who is ADV+.

The more people who vote the clearer the picture.. so if you
want to know how bad ADV really is, go vote!
