Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: What should I do?

What you are describing sound like Adrenal disease, and while there are people who treat their ferrets with herbals and supplements, there is not much documentation on the success rate.
IMO if he is not an oldster- and only an experienced ferret person,or ferret Vet could gage by exam, then surgery will most likely be needed.
He is a male, and advanced adrenal disease might also lead to an enlarged prostate, slowly closing of his urethra [enlarged prostate] and making it nearly impossible to void his bladder.
Please take him to a Ferret Savvy Vet. If you don't know of one, contact a ferret shelter in your area to see who they reccomend.
Or use this link to find a ferret Vet near you;

He was left outside for about 1 month or more at the end of last summer. Recently he has been losing hair all over his body. He still eats and is very active. I was wondering if anyone knew what this might be and have any idea how to take care of it without a vet. If I have to I will take him to a vet. Money is tight and if there is a home remedy out there I would like to hear it. Thank you very much.
