Given the description and type of worsening it is possible that there was a chronic infection
and the Pred, being a steroid, suppressed the immune system enough that it took off. That
would also enlarge the spleen.

Just a guess but it seems to fit.

A large spleen can suppress appetite, BTW, and so can the most common infection that
enlarges it in ferrets: Helicobacter.
