You are right in doubting this information. Absolutely do not fast
your ferret for 12 hours! I would question the ferret expertise of
someone who recommends this for a hypoglycemic ferret. A blood
glucose of 2.2 mmol/L is roughly equal to 40 mg/dl, which is most
definitely low.

I'm not a vet, but personally, I would not fast him at all with a
glucose level that low.
