I have given Lupron to three of my ferrets this happened to
with good success. Including two who became sexually
aggressive again

I have a very small male silver mitt that was operated on
two and a half years ago at the age of two for both
bilateral adrenal and insulinoma surgery. A small piece of
adrenal gland was left to help the hormons work properly.
Now the poor guy is losing all of his hair, losing weight
and getting very lathargic. He is eating kibble very well
and getting duck soup twice a day on top of it. Would
surgery be an option for this guy or should we just get him
on medication? Thanks for any answers.
