I like that - adrenal "hot-spots".

More on this subject for the original poster - another preparations
that have been used to good advantage in ferrets is Bag Balm. You
can find out about this and others in the archives available through
the Web site.

But there really isn't anything that will improve fur regrowth. That
is only acomplished by taking care of the excessive estrogens
circulating in the bloodstream.

With kindest regards,
