Subject: New Ferrets Need to Gain Weight!


I recently adopted two new ferrets from our local humane society, but
they are both in desperate need of gaining weight. They have been
evaluated by the clinic but we can't get in to see the vet until the
end of the week - so we need some good suggestions about rapid weight
gain technics!

The ferrets are both 4 years old, one is albino the other sable.
They are about 1.5 pounds (though the albino is much thinner I
think). The owner who gave up the ferret indicated that the ferret
would eat only one type of food which we have not been able to find.
So we're a little anxious for some good advice.
