Dear Adam:

I'm not a veterinarian or a vet student. Have run a ferret shelter
for over 10 years and currently we have 8 hospice ferrets. I have
been using Colodial Silver for a year and a half and it has greatly
improved the quality of life for the hospice ferrets. Some who were
very lathergic (spelling sorry), have perked up, had increased
appetites and are actually playing. I also use Timmy's Tonic which
has been a lifesaver. Just my opinion.
