Subject: [Ferret-Health-list] Problem with ferrets ear

I am unsure about polyps in a ferret's ears, but do know that
my cat had one as a kitten that grew so big that it extended
into his throat area and affected his breathing. The good
news was that it was surgically removed. He is now 7 years
old and fine.
It might be worth asking about.
Take care,

The vet said that Jerry has polyps in his ear. These may be
due to a
reoccurring ear infection or cancer. She said that this type
of ear
cancer has become a ferret issue. ( Oh great, one more thing
) We are
treating it with an ear cleansing with Oticalm, and two
drops every
12 hours of baytril otic, and synotic. Jerry is not eating
much of
anything and has lost a few ounces.
