I also wonder if maybe the high number of Adrenal, Insulinoma problems could
be caused by over vaccinations. When breeder ferrets that have been
neutered/spayed at the right time and given the best type of ferret food, no
artifical lighting still come down with Adrenal and Insulinoma, makes me
wonder what are we doing wrong to cause this!

I know that even pre-medicating ferrets does not mean they will not have a
re-action. Here I have had 5 that have had reactions even thou we did
pre-medicate before. Maybe they would have been more severe if we had not
pre-medicated thou!

I really wonder if after they are 3 years old it would be better to stop the
yearly vaccination if they are not exposed to other ferrets and are only kept
in the house. I also wonder if ferrets that have Adrenal, Insulinoma or
other illness should be vaccinated.

We all still have a lot to learn!!!
