Hi Christina! I will deal with this part and let others
tackle the rest...except you should give the pepcid about
10 minutes before the ferret eats. If Bandit is nauseous
you might want to try Pepto instead.

Re the Devil's Club- I and several others I know have had
excellent response with the Devil's Club. For more
information check out Last Chance Ferret Rescue's website . Re the alcohol, that is only
the delivery agent, and I assume a preservative. As soon
as you put it in warm water ( I put it in food) the
alcohol evaporates off, so the ferret actually never gets
any of it. This goes for any herbal tincture- mix it in a
little hot water and the alcohol will evaporate off.

Hope this helps
