Rad Cat saves the day again!!

Thank You Rad Cat for being our sponsor for our booth for the past several years for The Great KC Pet Expo!  We're looking forward to working wth Rad Cat again this year.  Check out their website here:  http://www.radfood.com/  Thank you so very much to Rad Cat!!!

You might ask why we are partnering with a cat food company.  Ferrets, like cats, are obligate carnivores, which means they must eat a diet composed of meat.  Raw feeding is very beneficial for ferrets as well as for cats, and Rad Cat produces high quality raw food.  Ferrets and cats alike love it! 

Look for our upcoming newsletter, which will have an article on the benefits of raw feeding.

Treatment of Liver Disease in Ferrets

We have successfully treated liver disease in two separate ferrets using Denamarin chewable tablets, which were recommended by one of the vets who sees our shelter ferrets.  They have done well with Denamarin for extended periods of time, during which they continued to enjoy quality life.  Not only that, but we saw immediate improvement after starting the Denamarin.    Feel free to contact Katie Carr or Vikki Lager with the Kansas City Ferret Hotline (Hotline number – 913-596-0600; Hotline email – kansascityferrethotline@gmail.com) if you would like further information.
