A four-year-old ferret is experiencing thinning of the hair on the tail. Upon further inspection a raised, round, ulcerated lesion is noted midway down the length of the tail (the lesion is shown after the hair around it is removed). The owner reports that the ferret does not appear to be bothered by the lesion. The ferret is on a high quality commercial cat food diet and is otherwise clinically normal.
