Subject: [ferrethealth] Adrenal Treatments
To: <>

I have always thought the treatment of choice was surgery, especially for
male ferrets. Recently two of my boys are presenting hair loss, and my
veterinarian is now recommending the combination of melatonin and lupron
instead of going to surgery based on new information regarding the results
of this type of treatment. Since I lost a ferret approximately two years
ago who blocked from adrenal disease which did not present the classic
symptoms (He had tumors in the adrenal gland, liver, and prostrate, I am
anxious to use the most effective treatment method. What is considered the
most effective treatment at this time? Prior to treatment, one boy was bald
across the shoulders and near the tail as well as the tail. The other only
shows hair loss on the tail, but the hair is quite coarse which was not his
normal texture.
