Subject: Re: Raw diets
Message-ID: <>

Hi Merri,
The problem that I and most vets have with raw
diets is bacterial infection with E.coli or Salmonella.
I really do think ferrets need a high protein, high fat,
low carbohydrate diet (ie the Atkins diet for ferrets),
but I do think it should be cooked to avoid serious
and potentially fatal bacterial infections.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
