Subject: ProPlan Turkey Barley Nutrition Info

I know I'm a bit behind, but I just picked up a new bag of
Christopher's ProPlan Turkey Barley food. Just for general info, here
is the Guaranteed Analysis and the ingredients as listed.

Note that this is being fed to a ferret with eosinophilic enteritis,
who cannot handle regular, richer foods. Along with .5cc pred every
other day and a sprinkle of Prozyme on his food, Chris is doing
fantastic and appears to be perfectly active and healthy.

If anyone sees any really big problems with this food (other than
that it is not a ferret food, that is), please post. If anyone sees
anything I should be watchful of with a ferret on this diet, please
post. I'm willing to test or monitor anything I have to for Chris.
