I just introduced ferret soup to my lovely business of four. 3 of them have taken to it well enoigh that i feel comfortable removing kibble.
Unfortunately, my youngest boy, about 8 months old is NOT having it. He doesnt act like hes poisoned, and he doesnt seem to mind when i dab a few drops on his nose. Unfortunately, i cant get him to lick any off of my finger at all.
The stuff and scruff method stresses him out more than anything else, so ive been avoiding that entirely. After a fee hours of out right eating nothing (hes a chonky boi), i offered him kibble. He still refuses to eat. I pulled his kibble almost 12 hours ago and I havent seen him eat anything since then.
Please help. What did i do to my fur baby? Is he stressed? Could it be medical? All poops look normal and he doesnt seem bloated or uncomfortable at all, albeit he does seem a bit sleepier than usual.
I had stubborn ferts when I first tried raw. I started slow, being new, by trying raw ground chicken. When that didn't work after a few tries, I mixed in some ground kibble, and they ate it. I gradually reduced the kibble until it was just seasoning. You could wait longer. Leave him in his cage (if normally free-roaming) with the soup as his only food source. He won't starve in a day. Like all things ferret, patience is key. How old is he?
