Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: Baby boy losing weight and I need HELP

I just got the call from the vet and they said his spleen, as well as
his lympnodes are enlarged. They are worried he has lymphoma and took a
sample from the lymphnode itself to determine what comes back, which I
will not know until tomorrow. They said the adrenal glands looked a
little bigger then his last visit two months ago, but not enough that
they would be greatly concerned of Adrenal Disease at this point. They
checked his prostate and said everything looked normal. His intestines
looked completely normal also. My biggest questions is why is his tail
completely bald, he backs up a few times into a few corners to go to
the bathroom and his weight is going down, and yet they are looking at
lymphoma and not adrenal gland disease. He was only tested by the vet
two months ago and had the same tests done, which came back absolutely
beautiful, and now, only two months laster, everything has gone down
hill so fast. His tail actually had a little fur on it two months ago
and now is completely bald. Is there a type of lympoma that could
possibly have done so much damage so quickly? Is it normal for him to
lose fur on this tail from Lymphoma itself? This is all odd to me, but
with any luck, someone here may have had a similar situation. If any of
you can offer any advice please let me know. They are just waiting back
for the blood work now and the results of the test on the lymphnode,
but I am just afraid we might be missing or overlooking something else
tahat could be present. Please let me know if any of you have anything
you can share, and thank you in advance, Irene
