Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] desperate new member

I have one that is a pickey eater. I give him 1cc
Pedipred twice a day in Gerber state 2 Turkey baby
food. Heat it in the microwate for 10 sec. He laps
it up and loves it. He was like your little one,
would sleep all the time, no playing etc. Now he
meets me at the door to his room and does not want to
go to bed at night, wants to play all the time. He is
about 6 or 7 years old and such a sweetie. He is
growing a new coat of fur and is beautiful. I hope
this works for him and you will see the change in him
I have in mine. Let me know
