Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Raw Meat Questions

Hi Stephanie,
Yes, ferrets can get Salmonella and E. coli.
Yes, bones can cause problems. We removed a
chicken leg bone from a dog's large intestine last week,
and treated another dog this week for post chicken bone
problems. I would stick with cooked meats and cooked eggs
as a supplement to their regular food.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
