Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Re: Pumpkin pie

Hi Valk,
Pumpkin pie is sometimes used in cats with megacolon
or constipation. It is basically a fiber source. Thus you are giving

your ferret a lot of fiber in order to push hair thru the the
digestive tract.
A lot of fiber is not the best thing for ferrets, so I would suggest

laxatone or similar hairball products.
