Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Huge tumor need advise

Hi Sandi,
It sounds like you describing a perianal gland
adenocarcinoma in your ferret. These are bad news.
There was an article in the April 2001 issue of the vet magazine
Compendium on Continuing Education that talked about
treatment of this type of cancer. They used surgery and radiation
therapy to manage it. Chemotherapy is also another option.
Sorry I do not know about using angiogensis inhibitors in ferrets,
but your vet can consult with a vet school or other cancer
to see if that would be useful.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
