Subject: Clarifying food issue & TF question

Hi everyone,

I just want to make sure that I'm clear on the food issue.

#1- Rice is better than corn because it does not cause crystals to
form in the urine which could cause blockage.

#2- Reducing protein levels in older ferrets is only necessary if
they are already having renal difficulties.

#3- Reducing fat levels is only necessary if they are less active.

I was going to switch my 4-5 year olds to TF for Adults, but all are
healthy and still fairly active. There doesn't seem to be much of a
difference in the protein, or even the fat content for that matter.
Should I still switch or leave well enough alone? They also get
Eukanuba Kitten or Cat mixed with the TF and a separate bowl of
NutraMax Kitten, which I think I might do away with because I'm tired
of it getting caught in their palates. Anybody else have that problem?
