I've found that Bob Church's Chicken Gravy is about
the best thing for this. I give it 2-3 times a day to
mine with lymphoma in pretty good quantity. If they
don't want to take it on their own stick a little on
their nose so that they have to lick it off. Most
ferrets really seem to take to it and think it's an
extra special treat.

We still free feed kibble but the idea is that the
Gravy becomes a major part of their diet.

Info on making the Gravy is at:

I use Pam Sessoms' pressure cooker method to make it
and it's pretty easy. The original method is, to
quote Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy, "a whole lot
of no fun".

All the best,

Too soon after Snowfake passing to handle anything right now.
