Easy Soup Recipes for Ferrets

All of these soups are best served warm. Be careful when microwaving - always stir it afterwards to make sure that there aren't any hot spots. Preferably with your finger so that you can feel the temperature and make sure it's safe to eat.

Evanger's sells canned cooked chicken. The only ingredients are chicken, water, liver, and guar gum.

Mix 1 can of Evanger's with 1.5 cans of water, and blend. You can pour it into small cups and place them in the freezer. Thaw one container at a time, and, as with any cooked chicken, make sure to store it in the fridge and use it within 36 hours at most.

They also offer other canned cooked proteins such as duck and turkey. Just make sure to check the ingredients labels on those before buying them.

Carnivore Care

Carnivore Care comes in powder form which can be stored in the fridge or freezer.

The nice thing about powdered soup is that you can make it as you need it, unlike Evanger's where you need to either make the whole can at once and store the extra in the freezer or throw it out.

All you need to do is mix the powder with water to form soup! Some ferrets prefer it thicker while others prefer it very liquid. If your ferret isn't going for it, trying adding more or less water the next time. It contains eggs, which some ferrets love, and is great for putting weight on.

Duk Soup is another powdered soup, so the same instructions as Carnivore Care apply.
