Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Bob C and treats

I have to agree with Bob! Cherries, carbohydrates,
and other sugary treats are not good for your ferret!
In the long run, they may actually cause insulinomas!
Offer your ferrets cooked meat (beef, chicken, turkey, fish, eggs)
and cooked fat (beef chicken, turkey, fish) as treats.
In addition baby food and Hill's a/d can be used as treats.
This way you know what food your ferret likes, and you can
use it when thay are sick or after a surgery. Mine just love
anything that has been smoked or cooked on the grill.
Steak and salmon are their 2 favorite treats.
