Subject: [ferrethealth] Sick ferret

I'm looking for some input on a one of my ferrets. Here's her history. Last year in May she had projectile vomiting so I took her to the vet. On examination the vet felt something in her abd. We all thought foreign object so she went to surgery. It turned out that what we feeling was swollen lymph nodes. An asperation of the node showed nothing.
Two months ago she did it again. Vet started thinking IBD. We put her on pred. She was better, but I don't know if it was from pred or just another lull in her symptems. She did it again two days ago. She also had loose stool. She's now on pred and amoxi. You can still feel the nodes in her abd., but they don't seem to have grown.
Problem is she's acting fine and today her stool was fine. Any ideas. Does IBD clear up for a year and then pop up again? Could it be lymphoma?
