Has anyone ever had a really successful spleen removal on a ferret?

**I've done a number of them. The question that has to be asked when a

well. If it was, on the other hand, a cancerous spleen, they are much less=

likely to do well. It is always a good idea to think about whether the spl=

enlarged due to something like lymphoma before going ahead with surgery.**
