Abstract

Hyperadrenocorticism (excessive adrenal production of sex steroids related to adrenocortical adenomas and carcinomas) is a common disease in neutered male and female pet ferrets (Mustela putorius furo) and causes significant morbidity. Incidence of ferret adrenal disease in Latvia is high because...

Abstract

Background: Ferret hyperadrenocorticism is the most common endocrine disease among domesticated ferrets. Current therapies include adrenalectomy and gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogs. Radiation therapy was used as an alternative noninvasive local therapy option. Case presentation: A 5-year-old ...

Abstract

Hyperadrenocorticism in ferrets is usually associated with unaltered plasma concentrations of cortisol and adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), although the urinary corticoid/creatinine ratio (UCCR) is commonly elevated. In this study the urinary glucocorticoid excretion was investigated in healthy ...

Abstract

Gonadectomy induces the pathogenesis of luteinising hormone receptor positive, androgen and oestrogen producing tumours in the adrenal cortex of ferrets. In mice, the castration-dependent appearance of adrenocortical tumours has been attributed to loss of expression of the tumour suppressor gene...

Abstract

This case report describes the surgical therapy of an adrenal gland adenocarcinoma with symptoms of hyperadrenocorticism in a four-year-old, neutered male ferret that did not respond to conservative hormonal treatment. The adrenal gland disease was verified by abdominal ultrasound and treated with...

Abstract

Hyperadrenocorticism is a frequently occurring disease in middle-aged ferrets. It is caused by a neoplasm of the adrenal cortex. Otherwise than in dogs and cats, hyperadrenocorticism in the ferret is always independent of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). The tumor of the adrenal cortex can be...

Abstract

Neoplastic disease is common in ferrets. Approximately half of all tumors diagnosed in ferrets are located in the endocrine or hemolymphatic system. Many factors may influence the choice of treatment. Medical management of adrenal tumors has a greater disease-free period compared to adrenalectomy....

Abstract

The effects of age, sex and age at neutering on prevalence of hyperadrenocorticism was studied in 50 ferrets with hyperadrenocorticism and 1267 ferrets without hyperadrenocorticism in the Netherlands. A questionnaire was sent to 1400 members of a ferret-owners organization in the Netherlands; 492...

Abstract

Ferrets are very agile and lively animals, and their behavioural needs are not easily met in housing conditions like our living rooms. Nevertheless, ferrets are increasingly popular as pets. The present paper aims to review and discuss the available knowledge on our pet ferret. Topics are discussed ...
