> Particularly needed are comments from veterinarians that will rebut
> the comments previously left by veterinarians employed by pet store
> lobbyists and Marshall Farms. They state that ferrets are fully
> weaned and ready to be adopted by 6 weeks of age, that the current
> set of regulations is sufficient to protect ferret welfare, etc. Be
> as specific as you can. If you're a vet and you strongly support
> revising the regulations, please contact the USDA before tomorrow
> afternoon. Marshall Farms and the retail pet trade have millions of
> dollars and a lot of professional lobbyists at their disposal. The
> ferrets have us, and that's it.
