That is amazing! That is such a good sign. It means he recognizes it as food and will eat if he's hungry enough. And glad he didn't get sick or anything.
Now that is such a relief to hear, considering all his medical issues. For the time being, feed him as much as he will eat. He is going through a stage most raw fed ferrets go through where they EAT EAT EAT. And then eat some more. It's like their bodies are making up for lost time. The amount will gradually taper off.
Oh my gosh, no I am so sorry to hear that, but I'm glad its soon enough to correct. I am just thinking, this has got to be diet related or maybe environmental? (but what would cause stones - water ? ). This is such a bizarre situation.
Sounds great! Now that everyone is (sorta) on board, you should be able to push them and get results with it.
Okay, so you really won't see any deficiencies for a while. A ferret can sustain on baby food alone for almost 6 months. That being said, I think as long as we get some organ/heart introed within the next month you should be fine.
