Sorry to get off topic for a second but was it at the base of her tail or did the hair loss start further down? Napoleon had that as well (plus blackheads) and the vet suggested melatonin. His fur is all back! My guess is one or more of these factors...heat, stress, me washing him too often. Just a guess though.
Back to crafty...that stuffie is adorable, I may need to look in to ordering one, as well as some of those cute sleep sacks.
Melatonin only treats the symptoms of the disease though not the disease itself.
My poor guy is completely bald except for his feet and face from this disease. I have been seriously considering a Melatonin implant so he won't be so cold this winter and just may have to do it soon.
As Far as I know there is only two ways to cure the disease, surgery, and lypron injections. Both being equally expensive and lypron is not available everywhere.
It's sad these diseases that get our fur babies. I feel for all owners of ferrets who have to deal with them!

About the last three inches of her tail.
I'd love a stuffie ferret like that, but my boy Duncan claims any and all stuffies in the house as his and promply hides them. I got a stuffed lamb in a swap not that long ago, and I didn't even get it out of the box before Duncan jumped up on the couch and snuck away with it!
Adrenal disease can still be the factor but since there was nothing on the ultra sound consider yourself really lucky!
I volunteer on a pet answers website
and we just had a user who's ferret did the same thing and sadly he did have adrenal. But they'd caught it early so his prognosis is good.
Sorry to take over the thread But having to go through disease with my ferrets 2 times now I feel Like I have to share with anyone and warn them. It's always better to be safe than sorry you know?
I still love this project and definitely want to make one for my three ferrets.
