FERRET FAQ (part 5 of 5) -- MEDICAL OVERVIEW Compiled and edited by Pamela Greene <firstname.lastname@example.org> Additions, corrections, and suggestions for this file are welcomed! This document is copyright 1994-1998 by Pamela L. Greene. See section 0.5 (in Part 1, About Ferrets and This FAQ) for authorship information and redistribution rights. In short, you can give it away, but you can't charge for it or include it in any for-profit work without permission. The basic Ferret FAQ has five parts, all of which should be available wherever you obtained this one. Most people will want to look at parts 1 through 4, and perhaps skim part 5. A complete table of contents for all five files is given in Part 1. Please at least read section 0 in Part 1, About this FAQ. In addition, there are separate FAQ's for several common ferret diseases. Information about those is given in section [1.1]. Please note: I am not a ferret expert, and I did not write, nor did I independently verify, all the information in this file. I have done my best to include only accurate and useful information, but I cannot guarantee that what is contained in this file, whether written by me or by one of the contributors, is correct, or even that following the advice herein won't be harmful to you or your ferret in some way. For advice from an expert, you may wish to consult one of several books available, or, especially in the case of a suspected medical problem, a veterinarian who is familiar with the treatment of ferrets.
