What a spoiled fuzz, having a full time fuzz mom at home 😊 GusGus will be so happy!
Ferrets are unlike any other pet in that they all get sick - insulinoma & adrenal affect more ferrets then they don't. I'm glad you are coming to terms with GusGus & his illness.
He is doing extremely well!! He should always have a few bites left over, when you go the feed his next meal. This ensures he's got plenty to eat. On avg a male ferret can eat anywhere from 2-5oz a day.
He eats like a pig when he first wakes up! It always makes me chuckle because he acts like he's never seen food before. He loves soupies, but if I put meat in his cage he won't eat it unless I hand it to him. He'll just lick it. Is that normal? He does like it! He'll chew it if he gets a bite in his mouth, but he seems to just lick.
