Any lamb? It is spendy but it's a good thing to have them eating just in case you need to feed a super gentle diet sometime. Goat is similar to lamb if you can find that...
As for the organs yes if liver is all you can find then feed 10% liver. Can you at least find 2 different liver sources? Or just chicken? You might also want to look for chicken feet (good bone source) and beef tongue (muscle meat). Yaay on them gobbling the pork and let me know how the beef goes.
Okay, so Pixie had been acting funny lately. Weird stools (kinda seedy, kinda green, but not too much). She's still eating and drinking on her own, but only freeze dried mush or soup. Just in case, she got some pumpkin with petroleum jelly tonight along with Trixie. She played like normal, was inquisitive, but just seems off. Fingers crossed nothings wrong.
Thing morning she had two huge stools, but no foreign body. She might have just been constipated?? Anyway, I'm giving pork chucks again. If they aren't somewhat eaten after school, I'll make some soup for her.
Yay! I am glad to hear that. It really does sound like she was constipated. Ferrets are very sensitive to changes in routine, and stress. They also respond to our own levels of stress. Perhaps she is having a delayed reaction to all of the stress that you were recently dealing with. Another option is shedding. Both of my boys are in shed, so it is possible that she had a hairball - which may or may not be obvious in the poop. I would just keep feeding them a little pumpkin each day for the next few weeks. I find that Koda and Kenai do better with regular fiber anyways. Let me know how she does with the pork.
Well, Pixie is still not eating chunks. I don't want her to go without food, but everytime I leave chunks of any meat in the cage (even chicken wing, which she enjoys), she's not eating them. She is skinny enough as it is, and I don't want her to lose any weight. So I've been spoiling her with mush (rotating between freeze dried and raw ice cubes with pumpkin). I think she is still not feeling quite right. If it persists much longer, I might have to bring her in for a vet visit. I am probably over-reacting, but I would rather er on the side of caution.
Hmm... that doesn;t sound good! Keep me updated. If she doesn't seem to be feeling better soon I would take her in. Glad to hear Trixie is doing well. Maybe try to go back to basics and try pouring soup gravy over the chunks and see how she likes that.
Let me know how they do. Also, if Pixie keeps having trouble, you might want to get a fecal done. You should be able to do it without taking her in for an appointment. Just call in ahead of time and drop off a fresh sample.
Oh I forgot to add. Feeding her a little Vaseline (Pure petroleum jelly only) followed by some feline probiotics might help reset her stomach flora. If you look under Medical Resources on the old forum Mustelidmusk posted a Homeopathic Poop Protocol - it might be worth a shot. I would go for a fecal test first though. Just in case.
