Nature’s Bounty Vitamin B Complex
This is a must have for older and sick ferrets. If you have a sick ferret, hopefully he’s getting some kind of nutritious soup. If so, you can add some liquid B-Vitamins each time he eats to help improve absorption. Probably 5-8 drops with each meal. I use Nature’s Bounty B Complex, about 3-4 daily does the trick.

Duck Soup Recipe
1 cup dry premium quality ferret food (Wysong Epogen 90 is my favorite, Omit if ferret has insulinoma or IBD)
1 quarter chicken fully cooked and deboned
2 hard boiled eggs
10 Papaya tablets (helps with digestion)
1 Calcium Tablet 500 mg
1 tsp Ferretone or Linatone
16 oz can Iams (or other high quality food) Cat or Kitten food
Cook chicken until done well (poultry simply comes off the bones); don’t add salt. Eggs may be boiled with chicken. Add deboned chicken to blender (Vitamix works the best) with broth water, calcium tablets, papaya tablets, and mix on high until mixture is pulverized. Add dried food and continue blending until smooth. Put the remaining ingredients one at any given time using the canned cat food being the final item. Add remaining broth water as needed to tap off in blender. Mix for about 3 minutes. Thin to medium consistency is good. Place frozen cubes in sealed plastic bags for long-term storage.
Each cube equals 1 serving. For sick ferrets, feed a minimum of 1 cube every 4-6 hours. The more the better, but give at least 4 times a day.
For healthy younger ferrets, you can feed once or twice daily.by
