    My poor ferret, smokey, won't eat anything. I've tried the duck soup multiple times, I've tried straight ferret food and straight baby food (of various flavors), and she just won't eat. She's losing weight rapidly. She's also pretty old (almost 6 1/2). I don't want her to go through any...

    Hi everyone! I am kind of worried about my ferret, Smokey. She's nearly 6 1/2 years old, which I hear is pretty old. She's balding, though. She has fur from her shoulder blades and forward, but the rest of her fur is really thin, and there hasn't been any on her tail for over a year. She's...

    Time for me to start freaking out again... I just found out I'm killing my ferrets. I used ferret shampoo with aloe in it, not knowing that aloe can be fatal to ferrets.

    Why you need duck soup: When your ferret gets sick, is recovering from surgery, or just plain isn't feeling well your ferret may not want to eat kibble. Hense the need for duck soup! You want to get your ferrets used to duck soup while they are happy and healthy because most ferrets imprint on...

    Hi, I was hoping someone out there might be able to help me. I have a sick ferret who has been having diahhrea for about a week now. He hasn't really been interested in his hard food so I've been giving him baby food. To help keep him hydrated, I had been giving him Ensure powder mixed with...
