Subject: itchy ferret

Can anyone suggest something for a very itchy ferret? (Besides
Benadryl or Pred) Flounder my black eyed white is also a
victim of adrenal problems and is on the Lupron injection
(200mcg- 4month depot). He scratches and scratches all the
time. I know he is miserable and it makes me miserable just
having to watch him itch so much. We have tried the Benadryl
but it is not working. I've bathed him and that doesn't work
only stresses him out! He has very little hair and sometimes
scratches so much his skin becomes irritated from his nails. I
need to keep his nails trimmed all the time so the damage he
does to his skin is lessened. I would be grateful for any
input. Thanks much!! KM
