Subject: Re: loss of hair on tail

Got ten ferrets. All had rattail for about 3 months. Tried
everything. Finally tried Johnson and Johnson Foaming Face
Wash for teenagers. Worked. Washed their tails every day for
2 weeks. Now wash their entire bodies once a month with the
same stuff. It does not dry out their skin. Their tails look
great. Definitely worth a try. :)
