Subject: [Ferret-Health-list] Re:] Can I use Lactose free milk in duck soup?
in duck soup?

Hi Patty,
I have tried many recipes for duck soup and found #2 Gerber turkey to be a sure winner. Not only do my sick little babies love it but they gain weight and energy.

I am not so sure these duck soup recipees are useful, I think the
gerber's meat baby food, or the Chicken gravy recipee is healthier,
and am not sure what purpose the Ensure serves in a ferret diet.
I have seen Ensure in a bottle,but you wouldn't use much and
end up discarding some, better off with a small 6 pack with
little cans. Wouldn't use the reduced fat,lactose free milk because
it doesn't serve any purpose, I thought the purpose of Ensure
was to provide a high calorie, nutritionally complete supplement
(well nutritionally complete for humans that is), and in my opinion soy
no place in ferret nutrition- they are obligate carnivores.

Maybe someone who does a lot of rescue work or sheltering
could suggest a good recipee, preferably without milk or soy.
