Bonnie, while I am certainly no vet and have no knowledge or experience with
Cushings I would suggest a conversation about depo lupron. This is used in
lieu of adrenal surgery. I can also tell you with my experience with ultra
sound for adrenal detection have never worked for us, always had to go with
surgery. Good Luck, Deidre

Subject: [Ferret-Health-list] Adrenal problem?
I am new to this list, and wondering if anyone out there can offer advice.
WE lost our baby Rocks (actually 5 years old no longer a baby) to a tumor a
few months back, they said adrenal, however, he showed no other symptoms as
his fur that was falling out all grew back.
Now our last remaining ferret, Pebbles, who is 3 has a swollen vulva and we
are told, adrenal tumor / cushings. I have however read, that there are
blood tests etc you can do? We can't afford the $150 ultrasound never
mind the $450-$500 surgery and have found no options, Can anyone offer
Thanks so much...
