Hi, I'm Missy. I've never been on or viewed a forum Could use some pointers on how to use this site I have four ferrets Odie 5 yrs old. Albino Male Ginger 4 yrs old. DEW Female Isabella 18 months old. Cinnamon Female LittleBit 17 months old. Silver Female I really need to introduce pumpkin, olive oil, pedialite, chicken baby food, and any others I might need to feed when ill. Currently, the ingredients of my soupies are Epigen 90, arch 1, Stella & Chewy's chicken dinner, and Evo. It is my goal to get them on a raw diet Thank you.
Since I moved your post after Sunnyberra answered, I figured I'd better copy/paste her answer to you here ;D
Also, welcome to the forum
missnlos1 - when I had to get my guys used to things - I just used a syringe and got them to taste it that way (I make sure to "syringe train" mine either as kits or as soon as they come to me, so they're familiar with it bringing all sorts of things, not just bad stuff. It's a neater way to do "scruff and stuff" sessions, too, if they can take the syringe without stress). If your guys are finicky about syringe feeding, trying scruffing and dabbing some in their inner cheek for a taste (or on their nose, mouth, or paws if they won't just rub it off). Stay positive and calm and full of praise for each session and they'll come around (I've gotten all mine but my newest rescue eating pumpkin, all having EVOO, but I've noticed that some are just set dead against baby food. That seems to be an iffy thing with some guys). Hope this helps And also, when you're ready, make sure to make use of the mentoring application if you need help with switching
