Introduction

  • Dook soup is the name for any special food used for supplemental feeding of a sick ferret.
  • This forumla is useful for building up weight on ferrets too.
  • The name came from a ferret called Lucki Duck who was fed this mix to help him recover from an illness. Since then many recipes have been developed; some have lots of ingredients others are simple but just as effective.
  • 'Dook' is also the sound ferrets make as they bounce around, associated with happy, excited and playful behaviors; this also makes the name appropriate for the soup.
