Aleutian Disease In Ferrets

ALEUTIAN DISEASE IN FERRETS

by: Dr Adrian Deeney

The Disease

Basically, the virus interferes with the immune system, which is why it was long thought that the disease in Aleutian ferrets was a genetic characteristic of this mutation, rather than being caused by an infectious agent.

Manifestations of clinical disease are likely to be determined by virus strain, host genotype and immune status. Thus, there is a wide range of clinical signs - from clinically normal to non-specific signs (eg lethargy and anorexia) to specific problems (eg uraemia, neurological dysfunction, frank haemorrhage of the digestive tract, including the mucosa of the oral cavity and intestines (see McCrackin Stevenson and Murray, 2001).
