Press Release: Marshall Pet Launches Ferret Lax Chews and Furo-Vite Chews

Marshall Pet Products will debut Ferret Lax Chews and Furo-Vite Chews next month at the Global Pet Expo, the pet industry’s largest annual trade show.

WOLCOTT, NY, FEBRUARY 23rd, 2015 – Marshall Pets launches Ferret Lax Chews and Furo-Vite Chews this year at the pet industry’s largest annual trade show. Both previously available as a popular tube supplements, the two additions bring a new level of portability and convenience to ferret owners.

Bacon-flavored Ferret Lax Chews are a convenient way to help eliminate and prevent hairballs as well as aid in removing accidentally ingested items–as ferrets are prone to intestinal blockages. Ferret Lax Chews are convenient and non-messy, with no added sugar, artificial colors or flavors, petrolatum or mineral oil. Each chew contains fewer than 6 calories.

Furo-Vite Chews are a convenient way to give ferrets their daily dose of essential vitamins and minerals, acids and enzymes. They’re great for maintaining overall ferret health, as well as for seasonal weight loss, post-surgery recovery and loss of appetite. Easily digestible Furo-Vite chews contain no artificial colors, flavors or added sugar, and like Ferret Lax Chews, contain fewer than 6 calories per chew.

Marshall Pet Products continues to build upon and expand its lineup of products that enhance the ferret ownership experience. Beginning in 1993, Marshall Pet Products has steadily expanded its market, first starting with ferret-support items such as sturdy and comfortable hammocks, escape-proof harness and lead sets, bell collars, premium homes, top-of-the-line nutrition, grooming, vitamins, supplements, toys and more.

Marshall Pet Products will offer various promotions on orders at the Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida March 4-6 at Marshall Booth #2225. For more information about the company and its innovative new pet products, email or visit

Dook, Dook, Smile! February is Pet Dental Health Month

How often do you change your toothbrush? How about your dog’s? Neglecting your pets’ dental health can cause significant–and costly–issues down the road. This is definitely a situation where an once of prevention can be worth a pound of cure.

Sponsored every February by the American Veterinary Medical Association, Pet Dental Health Month serves to remind pet owners that brushing their pets’ teeth is good for both your pet and your budget.

Unfortunately, pets’ teeth don’t get the same level of care and attention that we give our own teeth, even though they are subject to the same debilitating problems.

According to Dr. Clark K. Fobian, president of the AVMA, “One of the most common problems veterinarians see in pets is dental disease, and, unfortunately, these issues can get serious if untreated. I remind pet owners that an untreated dental infection can spread to the heart, kidneys and other organs, and suddenly become life threatening.”

Dr. Jan Bellows, president of the American Veterinary Dental College, acknowledges that certain foods can help pets’ teeth. “The texture of those foods generates a mechanical cleansing effect on the surface of the tooth as the pet is eating.” This is great information for owners whose pets will not tolerate brushing.

Cats and dogs aren’t the only pets who benefit from regular dental care–ferrets do, too! With a little patience and perseverance, you can persuade your fuzzy buddy to accent a toothbrush in his mouth. Start by handling and rubbing your ferret’s cheeks and mouth and getting him used to having you interact with this area.

Since ferrets love any and all attention, it’s shouldn’t take too long to win him over and convince him this is a good, fun thing. Before you know it, you’ll be able to introduce the toothbrush to gently and thoroughly clean your ferret’s teeth and gums.

Remember–never use human paste. Marshall’s Dental Gel for Ferrets is pH balanced and formulated with baking soda and aloe vera, and was created specifically for ferret mouths.
