North Coast Duck Soup Recipe1 min read

So, I’m here to tell you all about the North Coast Duck Soup Recipe for ferrets. My ferrets love it. It’s a recipe you’ll make time and time again with your fuzzy little buddies. So what are you waiting for?


  • 1 cup dry high quality ferret food (Omit if ferret has insulinoma or IBD)
  • 1 quarter chicken fully cooked and deboned
  • 2 cups water used from boiling the chicken
  • 2 hard boiled eggs (leave shells on and include for extra calcium)
  • 10 Papaya tablets (aids in digestion)
  • 1 Calcium Tablet 500mg
  • 1 tsp Ferretone or Linatone
  • 1 6 oz can Iams (or other HIGH quality food) Cat or Kitten food

Step-by-Step Instructions

Cook chicken until well done (chicken easily comes off the bones); do NOT add salt.

Eggs can be boiled with chicken. Add deboned chicken to blender with broth water, papaya tablets, calcium tablets, and blend on high until mixture is pulverized. Add dry food and continue blending until smooth.

Add the remaining ingredients one at a time, with the canned cat food being the last item. Add remaining broth water as needed to tap off the blender. Blend for approximately 3 minutes.

The mixture should be thin. Pour or drain into ice cube trays and freeze. Place frozen cubes in sealed plastic bags for long-term storage.

Each cube equals 1 serving. For ill ferrets, feed a minimum of 1 cube every 4-6 hours. The more, the better, but feed at least 4 times a day.
