Subject: RE: [Ferret-Health-list] Essiac & Electrolytes

1. I recently purchased Essiac from a health store,
however, I know it is sold somewhere in the U.S.A. by a
ferret shelter. I would like to know if there is any
difference between the two essiac(s) in strength and is it
o.k. if I give the recommended dosage when using the "human"
essiac, if in fact there is any difference. (recommended
dosage: 1-2cc three times a week in a 50/50 mix with A/D and
water) I don't want to have to be concerned about over
detoxifying my fuzzies by mistake.
I don't know if they are the same. I do know that the
Essiac that Last Chance Ferret Shelter sells at is specifically formulated for
animals, not humans
2. What is A/D? I see the term thrown around and have no
clue what this is.
It is a canned food put out by Science Diet. It is a
prescription food and only available at your vets.
3. I have been reading about Electrolytes (in duck soup)
and somewhere I read about someone giving them to their
ferts in their water every day. I have no idea what this is
and where can you buy it?
[TANSY] Electrolytes are the minerals in your fluids that
balance the fluids in your body, a long with other tbadly
said, but hopefully you get the idea) they are primarily
potasium and sodium chloride.
