Dear Thomas R. Willard, Ph.D,

Could you please tell us why

'vegetables are totally non digestible and cause blockage'?

Thank you,

Though ferrets like broccoli, raisins, bananas, candy, ice
cream and many
other not so nutritional treats, please do not feed them
these things. The
vegetables are totally non digestible and can cause
blockage. The ice cream
and candy can be dangerous. Stick to food treats or non
sugar cereals in
small amounts if you need to feed a treat.
