Dear Patty:

While I have admitted reservations about IBD as a true entity in
ferrets, I have no problem with posting the article. However, it is
the property of the American Ferret Association, which owns
copyright. I would suggest contacting Vickie McKimmey, who is on the
FHL, and asking the AFA's premission before doing so.

With kindest regards,
