#01: Aplastic Anemia

Alt-text: A lonely ferret holds a yellow balloon resembling a uterus and ovaries. She holds one hand to her side helplessly. Throughout the image, she is seen walking toward the horizon with her balloon, climbing over a brick wall, and finally, letting the balloon go. It floats away. Captions: "Ferret disease: non-infectious: Aplastic Anemia. Common cause of death among unspayed females. The result of a condition caused by high levels of estrogen which in turn suppresses the production of red and white blood cells. Symptoms: Depression, loss of appetite, hair loss, hemorrhages beneath the skin. Death occurs from severe anemia, bleeding, and secondary bacterial infections."
