Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: Deslorlin implant...when do they start taking effect?

I had an implant done for Minnie back on Set. 23.
Her symptoms were only a bald tail, thinning coat and excess scratching
and grooming the other
Even after the implant she progressed to total baldness, she only had
Now suddenly in the past month she started getting fur back on her
face,then it starting filling in on the legs,now she has almost a full coat on the
body and legs, but the tail is still almost bald.
She is still scratching and grooming, but not as much.
We had taken Minnie back to the vet in February with another ferret visit
just to show the vet the failure,she said they don't always work,but now
suddenly it seems to be working.

[Sometimes even with treatment ferrets do not regain
fur until a later shedding cycle and this is happening now.
We had one who lost fur due to carcinoma, had prompt
surgery which got it all, but did not regrow fur for a
few years; then one shedding season she wound up
with almost a full coat after being half bald for so long.
