Yeah. Regretfully, I used the stuff for a long time. I have fed raw since day one, but people still used FerreTone and I thought they were the same thing...never checked the label. One day someone said something and I realized they were different (*headdesk*). Mine also went in the garbage - the only place that stuff belongs unfortunately.
Have you tried giving your boy any oils? Salmon oil is the best, then fish oil, then extra virgin olive oil. It can take some time for them to get used to salmon oil, so it often works best to first cut it with olive oil or FerreTone (not vite) and gradually up the salmon oil amount. Mine hated it at first, but now they will do anything to get some - Koda will sell his furry little soul for the stuff! (giggle) It's really healthy for them, good for their coats and skin, and once they learn to like it they LOVE it so it can really help with introducing new foods and giving meds. I always keep a dropper bottle around for giving it out in tiny amounts as treats too.

I have Extra Virgin Olive Oil already so I'm using that til I can find decently priced salmon oil.
Grizzly Oil is a popular brand. I use Alaskan Yummy Chummy Original Salmon Oil myself because I can get it really cheap at home. Since coming down to Seattle though I have realized how ridiculously expensive the stuff is down here in the Lower 48!
Yeah BeastMaster is pretty much responsible for me getting ferrets. And partly responsible for Koda's name! I have really bad hearing and for a very long time thought that he was saying "Koda and Poda" - I wanted to name my ferret after the movie, AND I really like Brother Bear and Koda's personality very much fits Koda from that movie. I thought I was naming him after 2 characters at once - oops!
