Subject: [ferrethealth] Effects of Lupron
A couple months ago I took in a three year old naked female ferret. I
could hardly tell what color she had been. I got her a one month
affordable Lupron shot, she got peach fuzz and now she is beautiful with
a lovely shaded coat. I also give all the ferrets approx 14 hours of
darkness which I am sure she didn't get in her previous owner's place.
Should I go ahead and get the adrenal surgery done anyway? From what
I've read the Lupron just helps them look and feel better while the
gland is still enlarged.
Thanks for your help,

[Moderator's Note: Lupron can help the keep the growth
from increasing, and with the most common form of adrenal
gland enlargement it can also cause some shrinkage of the growth.
