Lambert Kay Linatone Shed Relief Dog and Cat Skin and Coat Liquid Supplement

This is my all around favorite duck soup recipe.  You can always vary it depending on the health of your ferret.  Mine loves it and the this recipe makes enough to last about 7-10 days for one ferret, serving 3-4 cubes a day. I also give my ferret Wysong dry kibble at all times in addition to the soup.
