Here’s to a Healthier Ferret Nation!
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), there may now be more than 1 million pet ferrets across the nation.1 Adrenocortical disease can greatly affect a ferret’s quality of life, and if left untreated, can be fatal.2,3 Until recently, the primary treatment for adrenal disease was surgical removal of the affected gland(s).
Now, there’s the convenient SUPRELORIN® F (deslorelin acetate) Implant. Available only through licensed veterinarians, this once-yearly, subcutaneous implant is here to help pet ferrets lead healthier lives.4 It is recommended that your veterinarian monitor your ferret’s response to therapy with endocrine testing and clinical monitoring throughout the year. Your veterinarian can schedule follow-up visits at appropriate intervals to ensure appropriate management of your ferret’s adrenal disease.
A new beginning...
SUPRELORIN® F Implant is available in the US for the management of adrenal gland cortical disease in ferrets.
