Subject: Treat/Supp Nutrition ?

Hi everyone. While loading up on some supplies today at my
local animal health store... I ran across 3 new items I had
not seen before that I found interesting.
I would like to post their information and see if anyone has
heard of them and/or what you think of the ingredients and so
Obviously I am speaking in terms of ferret use... they were
quite expensive but if they turn out not to be appropriate for
the ferrets, it's okay... I am sure my dogs and cats won't
mind not sharing. :)
of course if anyone see's some blaring reason I should not
give them to my dogs or cats either, please speak up!!!!
Obviously I am looking at these as treats/supplements used
sparingly and not as a replacement for normal nutrition.
Thanks for any thoughts.
