Need a little insite, my recently rescued girl is tiny. Way too tiny, vet was thinking maybe some canned cat food?? Any help would be greatly appreciated. When i got them they were on generic cat kibble, they have taken well to the wysong. But i just dont know how to get her to fatten up a little.
What is way too tiny? Can you post a picture up of her, preferably a dangle photo so we can see her weight? Some females are just tiny, period. And many people don't take into account what weight is healthy for their particular build and try to just go by numbers or comparing them to other ferrets and it doesn't quite work that way.
Best way to put meat on the bones of an actually skinny ferret is a raw diet. Duck is amazing for that.
My smallest girls weighed in at about 500 grams. That weight was right for their frames. One was a very tiny build, the other two were more "whippet" type builds. A raw diet will add on muscle instead of fat, which is much healthier.
