Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] URGENT ADVICE NEEDED - DYING

Hi There MSU,
A large abdominal mass may be lymphoma/LSA, but one
can not make that diagnosis without additional tests (ie
bloodwork showing the abnormal lymphocytes, biopsy,
fine needle aspirate, lymph node removal and histopath, etc).
The folks at the vet school at MSU should be able to help
you and your ferret. Bloodwork and an ultasound guided
aspirate may be the next step to further work up that mass.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
