Hi all. I have a question for them in the know about possible adrenal disease in my ferret, Justin. He is a white ferret, but not albino. Has had a bit of a health-riddened past - having to have his tail amputated because of a growth. Has been OK and that happened about a year ago. He has recently been sleeping a little more than normal, although he always has slept a lot. I noticed after coming back from work trip that he looks like he is loosing his hair on his back and belly. Took him to the vet to get him checked out and she mentioned it might be adrenal disease. Also he has had various bouts of regular diarrhea over the last few months. Its not unusual for him to have runny poo. Also noticed that he has had black ears recently. because of his colour his ears always look black, but seem to be a little bit worse. To make sure I was issued with antibiotics to give him twice a day. Since giving him them he seems to be up more. He has never had a problem with his appetite, always eating and wanting everything. After a few days on the antibiotic some of the black gunk from his ear came out, so I cleaned him up. The Vet has taken a stool sample for analysis to see if he has something but said this might not come back with anything. Anyone seen something like this before? It seems from talking to my vet is hard to confirm if it is one way or another, and I would rather not get him a implant if it isn't required, already spent quite a bit with the tests and i think it might be excess stress. I don't know if having a parasite can explain the change after taking the antibiotic and the hair loss? I have a total of three ferrets, the other two are completely fine. Any help is appreciated. Thanks Guys!
