Subject: [ferrethealth] Swollen ferret knee question

We took our female ferret to the vet on the 28th after noticing her knee to=
be a bit swollen and her limping on it.
Xrays were taken,he said her knee was gone and that the mass that was there=
looked alot like bone cancer seen in dogs But he's never seen it in a ferr=
et before.
A few days later it got noticably bigger,now 2 weeks later it looks like t=
he size of a small walnut and is hard like a rock.
The ferret is eating ,drinking normally.
She was hobbling around on it and yesterday my husband noticed her drag it,=
but when she got it under her she hobbled on it.
She does sleep alot due to being older.
Her behaviour is the same.
She dose not appear to be in pain and isn't sickly so we kind of don't agr=
ee with the cancer diagnosis.
Has anyone experienced this?
Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas =A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=
