There are five parts to the main Ferret FAQ.  The contents of those
parts are listed at the top of this file.

If you're looking for something to hand out at pet stores, vets'
offices, club meetings, and so forth, you might want the Ferret
mini-FAQ, a much shorter document which covers all the basics and is
formatted to be printed out.  There's also a single-page tri-fold
brochure with the most important information, ideal for vets' offices
and pet stores.  They're each available as a Postscript or PDF file
(which can be read using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader, available from
<http://www.adobe.com/>).

There are also FAQs dedicated to several common diseases:

 Adrenal disease (adenoma, adenocarcinoma)
 Insulinomas (islet cell tumors)
 Lymphosarcoma (lymphoma)
 Skin tumors (skin and mast cell tumors)
 Cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure (heart disease)
 Splenomegaly (enlarged spleen)
 Epizootic catarrhal enteritis (mystery green diarrhea virus)
 Gastric ulcers and Helicobacter mustelae

These FAQs are not posted to any newsgroup, but you can FTP them from
ftp.optics.rochester.edu in /pub/pgreene/ .  You can also receive them
from a mailserver.  To get a copy of all the files, each in a separate
email message, send email to <listserv@cunyvm.cuny.edu> with the single
line (in the body of the message):
GET DISEASE PACKAGE FERRET

To receive only a single part, instead send one of these commands:
GET ADRENAL DISEASE FERRET
GET INSULIN DISEASE FERRET
GET LYMPH DISEASE FERRET
GET SKIN TUMORS FERRET
GET CARDIO DISEASE FERRET
GET ENLARGED SPLEEN FERRET
GET GREEN VIRUS FERRET
GET GASTRIC ULCERS FERRET

Finally, there is a single-part Ferret Natural History FAQ, which
contains information on ferret biology, history, domestication,
taxonomy, and so forth.  It's available from Ferret Central
<http://www.ferretcentral.org/>, or from
the CUNY listserver using the command
GET NATURAL HISTORY FERRET
