Alright now we have greyish looking poops, but not seedy. The other litterbox looked a little worse than the one in the picture. They had pork and beef chunks last night and pork and beef soupie this morning (made with beef liver instead of chicken). We also started using rescue remedy in their water and bonemeal instead of eggshells yesterday
So....ferret math, we have another ferret! Her name is Yara, she is 6-7 months old. Right now she is separated from the other ferrets until we can get a fecal done. She was brought back to the petstore because she wouldn't use a litterbox and they mentioned something about maggots...so I want to check for worms just in case. She has been terrified while at the store...she just shakes when you hold her she's weighs a little over 2 lbs and is already bigger than Summer and Stella. we've been fighting over the litterbox
haha! Congrats on new baby, looks really cute and I am sure she will fit in nicely. She was trough quite some stress in her short life and it is understandable she is scared atm, but in few days she will be ok. Give her lots of cuddles and gentleness and some help in form of rescue remedy.
Yes, it is very wise to do fecal and earmites check before puting a new ferret into existing business. Since I am in charge for adoption program in our association this is a part of our procedure when accepting any newbies Regarding the litterbox - just give her a praise & treat every time she goes into it.
How is she with food? On kibble or have you tried with a soupie yet?
Ok ... back to the programe - lot's of people mistaken the size of the spoons, quite recently, I think it was last week, one of the girls from our association did the same mistake No problem, it is important you found it out and can change it. Btw, can you snap a picture of one of their meals - would like to see what is the ratio of soup/meat chunks
We got the fecal done today and no worms! So she is in with the business We haven't given her any kibble (she was on Marshalls) and she has eaten chicken, turkey, and pork soupies so far. As far as the meals go, we usually do soupie OR chunks though sometimes we will leave the soupie chunky. Right now it's really thin to get Yara eating Their poop is solid now after adjusting the bonemeal, normal? I saw some that was seedy too when I woke up this morning and they had pork and turkey yesterday
