Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Re: growth on eye lid

Our Tunees developed a growth on his left eyelid. Not being a very good
surgical candidate (because of anesthetic) we were unsure of what to do. The
growth is getting bigger and now he has started to get another on the right
eyelid. He looks like a lizard. We have decided to have them surgically
removed on the 18th of March. We are hoping for the best.
