  •  One of the treatments for ferrets with IBD (6+ / 0-)

    (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) is to feed them novel proteins.  As most food has chicken or beef, I bought some lamb to make food for one of our fosters.

    Mr. Beaux still notes that the furry kids eat better than he does.  (Despite his complaining, the big softie wants them to have whatever will help them out.)

    Socialist? I do not think that word means what you think it means.

    •  When our dog was sick he was supposed to try a (7+ / 0-)

      novel protein diet, too.  The first one we tried was lamb, but he absolutely refused to eat it.  This was a dog who would eat dirty socks and cat poo, so it wasn't because he was a fussy eater.

      A relative pointed out that the dog was a Shetland SHEEPdog and he was supposed to protect the sheep, not eat them.  LOL.

      He loved bison, when we switched to that.      

      Metaphors be with you.

        accept a new food, but ferrets after a certain age they really don't believe that something that smells different is really food.  It generally works to put a little of the new food in the critter's mouth several times a day until the light-bulb clicks on.  Maybe that would work with a woozle, too.

        I'm glad you found something that your baby loved.
