Subject: RE: [ferrethealth] kakarot IS eating dry food/mucus and hair in stool, though
Message-ID: <>

Mucous id from the colon and is normal sometimes it comes out by itself not
a big deal, if it came out with the hair I think it was some minor
irritation in the colon form the hair and increased the amount of mucous
produced. I wouldn't worry too much about that but be sure you are using
fur ball remedy to help.
