Hi Sarah,

I'm so sorry to hear that dear Spunkmeyer is still under the weather.  Since I don't peruse these boards as often as I used to, I missed your post a few days ago.

While I cannot help much more via email, I am always willing to help out if you need assistance trying different things.  Just contact me directly so I don't miss your message.

I hope it all works out for him.

Lynn

One of our ferrets, dear Spunkmeyer, has stopped eating after a prolonged stomach infection/inflammation. Since he's getting quite weak, the vet we saw today recommended Nutrical by syringe 3x a day, and also duck soup (and water if necessary) by syringe as well. We have a follow up with our regular vet (Dr. Auger) next Wednesday.

The vet today helpfully reviewed feeding by syringe & finding his cheek pocket. Besides scruffing, he also showed us how to grip around the ferret's chest/neck and front paws - though this is hard because my hands are petite, and I'm afraid of putting too much pressure on Spunky's neck & skull. So for now I'm mostly scruffing and kind of blocking his irritated pawing with my arm.

I know you are not my vets, but I know a lot of you have experience with sick ferrets! This is my first time feeding consistently by syringe. I was wondering:

- Are there any other tips for feeding a sick ferret by syringe? Spunky seems to have lost interest in Ferretone, so I can't use that to cajole him. He squirms, paws, and bites the syringe. (At least he's a spunky still, ha!) Maybe I should give more small feedings with breaks?

- Anything else I should try for feeding in general, or watch out for, that I might not have thought of?  

Update: He ate part of a teaspoon of soup without scruffing today, hurray! He still runs off or resists anything more, or for the Nutrical, though.

Here is a photo of our sweet little guy when he was pretending to be GQ Ferret.

Many thanks!

Petsmart has cut back on a lot of their brands. It also appears they have removed Totally Ferret from most of their stores.

I also understand the challenges US online stores when shipping pet food products across the border thanks to the CBSA rules, so am not surprised ferret.com won't ship food here.

That doesn't leave many options if the smaller stores won't or can't order the food. What we had to do in the early days was contact the manufacturer to find out if they had a distributer in Eastern Ontario and then contact the distributer to see what stores they serviced and then contact the stores to see if they would place a special order for us. 

Leis Pet is the major distributer in Eastern Ontario and they do not list this product so it's not going to be easy (short of shipping to a US mailing address and then dealing with the challenges of legally bringing it across the border yourself).  Sorry I can't be much help with this.

Trying a smaller pet store retailer may be another option. Such as Critter Jungle, Sandy Hill Pet Food Co-Op, Global Pet Foods, March Road Pet Food or a privately owned Pet Valu. The rescue has had much more success at ordering individual bags of food or foods that the stores don't usually stock by going this route. The store owners are also willing to help and go the extra mile.

Good luck!

It appears that no stores stock Sheppard & Greene. I have tried all Petsmart locations and was told at one that Petsmart is no longer stocking the product.

I tried ordering online at Ferret.Com but they won't ship ferret food to Canada.

Any suggestions for a supply?
