In Basking Ridge at Basking Ridge Animal Hospital there are two: Joe
Martins and Abe van Beveren. They are on South Finley Ave., and the
number is 1-908-766-4211. It's not hard to reach from 78 or from 287.

Some ferrets can cope without splenectomies or have the spleen go
down with non-surgical treatment, though it may be temporary. They
don't miss their spleen at al when they are removed.
