INCLUDES: Soybean Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Wheat Germ Oil and more. USE FOR: Adult ferrets as well as kits and pregnant and lactating ferrets.
Both at home and at the shelter, I use pure salmon oil as a substitute for Ferretone/Furo-Tone.
FerreTone: The use of FerreTone and similar products is not recommended due to the use of the preservative BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene), which is a known carcinogen. Ferrets are very prone to developing many different types of cancer, including lymphoma, sarcoma, insulinoma, adrenal malignancies and more.
NO FERRETON? NO PROBLEM! As Ferretone has been discontinued, we are pleased to announce that Ferret Dreams Rescue will now be selling Vivify by Performance Foods. Emu oil forms the basis and makes this dietary supplement so unique.
There are no additives and Salmon Oil is a healthy, nutritious treat created especially for your amazing fluffy ferret! It is rich in omega-3 & Omega-6 fatty acids, which are a great supplement for skin, coat, heart and brain health.
The healthy recommended dose of salmon oil is up to 1 teaspoon per ferret over the course of a week. We usually put our salmon oil in a small dropper. Ferrets don’t need much, sometimes they just like to lick the bottle.
CAN FERRETS EAT COCONUT OIL? Yes it can, but in small amounts. Coconut oil, just like olive oil, can help ferrets act as a laxative if your ferret is suffering from constipation. You can give your ferret coconut oil in small amounts; H. less than half a spoon a day.
Administer a hairball laxative.
This could lead to another blockage! Call your veterinarian and get a recommendation on a hairball remedy to help your ferret pass the hairs more smoothly.
If you keep houseplants, be aware that the following species are all highly toxic and ferrets should never have access to these: aloe vera, amaryllis, azalea, gypsophila, begonia, carnation, castor bean, chrysanthemum, cyclamen, daffodils, gladioli, hostas, ivy, all kinds of lilies, spurge, morning…
They are all bad. The ingredients that cause insulinoma are: malt syrup, molasses, cane molasses, malt paste, milk & Milk derivatives, malt extract. All of these ingredients are sugar in disguise. You will give your ferret insulinoma.
This drug will act quickly, in about 1 to 2 hours, and improvement in clinical symptoms should follow.
Medications should be given every 12 hours, feeding every 6 to 8 hours, at least. Feed your ferret before administering the drug to prevent stomach ulcers from developing if you are administering prednisone on an empty stomach. Other gastroprotective medications may be prescribed by your veterinarian.
Feeding tuna to your ferret is only recommended as a treat and not as a normal part of their diet. Some ferrets just don’t like the taste! If you’re running out of ferret food and need a backup, something like high-protein kitten food is actually a better choice than tuna.
Yes, catnip is perfectly safe for ferrets. Catnip is a safe herb for ferrets and dogs, so it’s not a problem if they’re around catnip. The only problem is that ferrets or dogs don’t find catnip as attractive as cats do.
But there is so much more: carnivores need to cover the entire omega spectrum and Pickle Juice offers all three omega 3-6-9 in one balanced, delicious & addictive treat for pet ferrets. Even the pickiest of ferrets will love it!
Good treats for ferrets include boiled eggs, cat treats, and chicken, turkey, or lamb chunks. In the meantime, you should avoid giving your ferret grains, vegetables, ice cream or chocolate.
Sardines. Sardines are a very common raw food addition for dogs, cats and ferrets. If you cannot obtain raw sardines, canned sardines in water can be used.
The gourd can certainly come in handy in an emergency situation. It binds stool, prevents prolapse, dehydration and explosive diarrhea. It can carry smaller bezoars (foreign objects) in the digestive tract. But it’s not the be-all and end-all of ferret supplements.
