Adrenal Disease in Ferrets

Treatment

 

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.

 

Living and Management

 

You must bring the ferret in for its regular follow-up appointments to ensure the disease remains in remission.

 

Prevention

 

Some studies suggest early neutering or spaying of the ferret may help prevent adrenal disease in young ferrets.
