Remember that humans often get too little D but can often use more of
it. Humans get poisoning from too much A easily. Ferrets are the

Three of the easiest ways to get more D are:
1. sunlight
2. fortified milk products
3. sardines

For ferrets, dogs and cats D3 is the problem.

I never looked up D levels in those foods, just knew that one of the
researchers was considering that.

AH! Raisins are high in boron which apparently is used when
processing D so THAT must be what that aspect is under study:
