"Then there's all the vets who think it's Cushings."

The medical term for Cushing's syndrome is hyperadrenocorticism. This is
commonly called "adrenal disease" in ferrets. Although this can be seen in
many species of animals, the symptoms can be very different, but they're all

hyperadrenocorticism, but instead is hyperhormonal: Adrenal Associated
Endocrinopathy. There is a lot of info in the archives, esp. from AFERRETVET.
