Subject: [ferrethealth] Adrenal disease treatment

I am compiling information for my local vet concerning non-surgical
treatment of adrenal disease. I've printed an article by Dr. Murry discussing
Lupron/Lysodren, and another by Dr. Cottrell discussing melatonin therapy
Both are from the Miami ferret site. I am unsure if there is more recent
data/research on the issue and I've just not found it yet.

Are there other non-surgical therapies that may improve quality of life
(lessen deleterious symptoms)? I've not found anything (other than surgery)
which increases quantity of life. Any additional vet-approved info (if
same exists) would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

caring for senior-weezie, Oreo

PS - Experienced ferret surgeon is not confident that surgery is answer
for Oreo, simply because of her age (7ish); possible complications from major
exploratory/anesthesia are concerning to him because of her age.
