Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Hairballs and Australia adrenal ?

Hi Bob and Shirley,
Your thoughts on hairball prevention are interesting.
That is the same logic behind the new "hairball
control cat foods" (ie more fiber and bigger kibble size)
to pull the hair thru the digestive tract. I use and recommend
laxatone or similar hairball products during the shedding seasons
(ie spring and fall) to help reduce the chances of a hairball.
Shirley do most of the ferret owners keep their ferrets outside
or are most of the ferrets of Australia kept indoors?
