Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Re:good treats.

Dr Willard makes a valid point about avoiding
veggies, candy, and sugar filled treats. The "treat"
I like best for my ferrets is simply cooked meat
(beef, chicken, turkey, fish, and eggs). Cut the meat
item up into small pieces and feed as a treat. My
2 ferrets really like steak and salmon. You can also
cut small pieces of fat up too (if your ferrets are not
over weight). This is especially important if you have
an insulinoma ferret because sugary treats can
cause problems.
