I'm not trained. Everything that I have ever learned in relation to ferrets
has been OJT. Frankly, I am watching the study with doxorubicin with great
interest - but it is still used in conjunction with surgery. I hope that this
may eventually help add quality of life to those ferrets with insulinoma. The
only disease I hate more than that is lymphoma.

Diana had her first chemo treatment and is doing well. We have 5 more and a
couple CBCs to go......I hope that she continues to tolerate the treatments.
