Subject: Eosinophilic Peritonitis
Message-ID: <>

I was wondering if anyone can give me any details about eosiniphilic peritonitis, ie is it life threatening, should my ferret change its diet, etc.

My 22-month old boy, Milo, has recently been diagnosed with this baffling disease and my vet isn't sure what caused the problem.

He had exploratory surgery last week and they found a 2cm x 3cm necrotic, nicotine-colored fatty mass between his abdomen and pancreas. It was removed and sent off to the pathology lab, and the results came back as being eosiniphilic peritonitis, not enteritis.

I have detailed the progress of Milo's illness over the past 3 weeks on my website and also added the pathology report which was sent to my vet.

I would be most grateful to receive any information whatsoever about this particular illness to help me get Milo back to normal.
