Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] starving ferret help duck soup..

Hi I had the same problem with my ferrets.

Duck Soup:

One can Sustacal 8oz (this is non-dairy)
One can water
4oz dry food-soaked in enough water to cover and soften completely
Optional-electrolyte water (really helps-comes in powder form), baby
such as chicken or mashed bananas Mix well- a blender is best, and
it freezes
in icecube trays beautifully.
Serve warm, let them eat their fill several times a day. If it gets
too thick
just thin with a little water. Once opened, Sustacal must be used
within 48
hrs if not frozen. If you have a really seriously ill ferret, warm
can be given full strength.

Note: We couldn't find Sustacal, but we did you use electrolyte.

Other things that my vet said were great was baby food. My babies
banana and peaches.. they don't care for chicken that much though.

I think that it would be better if you consulted your vet to see if
ferrets are okay to eat and do all of that.

I hope that I am of any help..:)

I hope your babies are okay though.. GOOD LUCK!
