Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Re Ferrets with Allergies

*I* am allergic to Tide! Well, I'll allergic to most things I've
decided. Thank goodness for allergy desensitization. I think
they're doing it in dogs and cats now...would it be possible with

My Polly is allergic to the type of wood pellets we get around here.
Displayed the classic signs of adrenal...itchy, lost fur on her
tail...etc., I was looking for simpler answers than surgury or
injections (especially since I still had a large bill). It occured to me
that it started about the same time I'd brought the bag home.
Switched litters back and within two weeks the hair on her tail was
growing back, she stopped itching so much, and there hasn't been
a problem since.
