I take PJ and warm it in the microwave for a few seconds (it melts nice, but
is messy) and then suck it up in syringes. I then give it to all my animals
(cats & ferrets). The ferrets I give about .5 ccs per ferret once every few
days in non-shedding season and daily in shedding season. They love it.
Maybe you could add some ferretone to the mix to flavour it, however, I am
not sure what heating it up would do to the ferretone.
