It would be a good idea to make sure that the little guy has water and food=
. =A0Duk soup is a good food for him at this point since he will need the n=
utrients in it to help get him back on the road to recovery. =A0If that is =
not available chicken baby food is a good alternative, just make sure there=
are no seasonings like onion or salt in it. =A0Do not allow him to over ea=
t as he may do that but feed him more often. =A0Marshall's ferret food soft=
ened with water will also work. =A0Keep him apart from any other ferrets in=
the house to allow him time to get used to the new surroundings as well. =
=A0A bath may be in order as well.


[There are a range of ferret foods and sometimes
ferrets have been fed high quality kitten foods.=20

The tricky thing with ferrets is that they do not always
readily accept a new flavor so finger feeding may be
needed and food introduction information is available
in the separate FHL archives (and I am sure some will
post about that topic, too) BUT as Tressie said, have
your friend get a prompt vet appointment and also do
first make sure this is a ferret rather than a wild mink=20
or weasel], and look in the reply from Sukie for links to
help on that score.

List members are asked to remember to NOT turn this
subject into a discussion of what foods they like since
that is not an FHL topics, per the rules which can be
found in the FHL Files section
Such posts will be rejected.
