Hello Tara,

I had a ferret with hypothyroidism and she was grossly overweight despite
eating less than most of my other ferrets. She did not have skin problems.
Her main problem was that her weight prevented her from moving freely and
she even had trouble rolling over. She had thyroid replacement for a time
and the problem righted itself.

It's hard to imagine what the skin lesions are without a pic, but has he
been tested for ringworm? Just a thought.
