It is important you find out what food they were
fed ( WHEN THEY WERE) they may not accept a new
food smell. I would suggest giving them a cheaper
food like purina or friskies kitten chow and
after they do eat SLOWLY add in a better grade of
food. Rushing a change in food will at this time
only upset their digestive systems.
Those poor babies. I have seen that years back
with a group of 19 we got in from a
breeder. nails curled under they had only bee
given raw veggies and had been beaten back with sticks at feeding time.

It will take a while to ease their anguish and
mental pain. My food thoughts are with you no
vaccinations until they are eating well, or you
could have additional health problems!
Remember to go slow on converting them over to better foods.

My thoughts are with you.

[Remember that if vaccinations are skipped for now -- which
needs to be the treating vet's call -- that precautions
make sense such as no ferret walks outside, shoes left outside
or where they can not be gotten for maybe an hour in
hot and dry weather but much longer in cold and wet weather,
