Hi Angela,

I don't know anything about the Megase you mentioned but if you are
looking for Proglycem, you can get flavored (I have linatone
flavored, but they have bunches of other flavors) at Ritzman
Pharmacies. They are in Ohio but they ship. You can have it sent
regular mail for free or overnight for a charge ($12 I belive) The
nice thing is that they flavor their meds from scratch, not over the
regular flavor (around here you can only get Proglycem in chocolate
mint flavor, try convincing a ferret that tastes good....) Their
website is and they have contact
information on their site.

I saw that there was another reply to your message suggesting
supplementing the diet with baby food, I wholeheartedly agree! It's
done wonders to my guy! Plain Chicken or Turkey seem to be
favorites, but remember to only use the pure meat version not the
ones that are mixed with other stuff.

Good luck!
