Treatment typically involves the removal of the ferret's adrenal glands. The veterinarian may also recommend administering medication that suppress certain hormones, such as luteinizing hormone (LH) and testoterone.
You must bring the ferret in for its regular follow-up appointments to ensure the disease remains in remission.
Some studies suggest early neutering or spaying of the ferret may help prevent adrenal disease in young ferrets.
