Thanks for your response. Peanut was given an organ by organ ultrasound and a complete physical examination prior to her being implanted. The only thing found during the ultrasound testing was a small 2 cm cyst on her pancreas. The State University Small Animal Teaching Hospital's vet said that the small cyst was nothing to worry about. The implanting procedure was done in September of last year. Her blood glucose level as of yesterday was 95. It was taken at the same medical center whose vet implanted her, and was taken with an AlphaTrak Blood Glucose well as with their large lab blood glucose meter. The two readings were exactly the same. Yesterday, there was a suspicion that Peanut might have IBD, and extra blood tests are being run to see if IBD may be a present.

Peanut's sister, Sandy, our second Ferret, was implanted yesterday at the same medical center from which Peanut received her implant. Sandy went through the same set of test prior to her being implanted. During the Ultrasound, they identified a small cancerous lesion on her liver. Since she is too light in weight for her to be a proper surgical candidate, the vet suggested that we wait some two to four weeks to allow her to gain some weight, and then bring her in to have the lesion removed. He said that whatever the amount of liver that they will remove will be totally regenerated as Sandy heals. Other than the lesion, there appeared to be no other significant problems except for the right Adrenal Gland being somewhat larger than would normally be the case. But, the vet was not concerned about the Adrenal gland and said that he would make a visual inspection of it, when her removes her liver lesion.
