I understand this. However, I have only seen hair loss, and continuance of other symptoms, in mine when malignancy, either of the adrenal glands or elsewhere in the body, have been present. I have never seen hair loss following lupron in ferrets without malignancies. Doesn't mean it couldn't happen, but I have yet to see it.

Or, perhaps, there is a malignancy that has been overlooked. Without proper biopsy of the adrenal gland, or the string of enlarged nodes (which could indicate lymphoma, which would also cause lupron to be less effective), you really can't be certain.

I understand you're looking for anomalies but the standard should not be dismissed without proper testing.
