YIKES!! I read the earlier message regarding Flax Seed Oil and meant
to go and get some as a treat, but after reading Sukie's cautions,
I'm kind of happy that I didn't get around to it yet. While I'm
confident that I could dispense the flax seed oil without too much
risk, I leave my weaselmonster with my parents while I am at work,
and they ALWAYS spoil their grandweasel, giving her anything she
wants. Years ago, my ferret Cody saw my father taking his daily
dose of cold pressed peanut oil, begged some, and appeared to love
it. Would that be an acceptable treat for Fifi? What would the
risks be?

Thanks in advance!
