I have one getting Cosequin (a glucosamine/chondroitan supplement) right
now. She eats it well if it's mixed into a "kibble mush" slurry. She
also gets some other meds this way, so it's just another one to add.
This would probably be more trouble if the fuzzy is only getting one med,
but it works great for my Sonic.

Dr. Karen (or anyone else), have you ever put a ferret on Adequan? We're
considering trying it with Sonic.

Best wishes,
