Subject: Re: [ferrethealth] adrenal and increased body temp

I don't know of anyone who has checked to see if a ferret is warmer than the ferret norm of 101'F to 102'F (103'F if just very recently extremely active is possible) with adrenal disease, but inflammatory responses can cause body temperatures to rise, and the adrenal IS intimately involved with some of the hormonal actions that can at times influence body temperature (as are the thyroid and the pituitary), so I can imagine two possible routes to body temperature differences.
