Diseases of the Reproductive System

Chapter 22 Diseases of the Reproductive System


Estrogen Toxicosis

Estrogen toxicosis is perhaps the most well-known disease affecting the reproductive tract in ferrets. Because ferrets experience induced ovulation, estrous ferrets may maintain increased estrogen levels for long periods if not bred. Today this disease has almost been eliminated due to ovariohysterectomies performed before the female ferret reaches maturity.

Prostatic Disease

Prostatic disease does occur in ferrets but usually in association with adrenal disease. It can result in urinary obstruction, which can lead to serious electrolyte disturbances.
