    I thought that this food was good for ferrets until I found out that ferrets are strict meat eaters and this food has a ton of fruit and vegetables. no wonder why my ferret has been so itchy...

    Ferrets are meat eaters. Obligate carnivores. The stuff in this product produce nothing but large bowel movements which shows the amount of non-useable stuff in it. Instead look for meat and meat meals as opposed to "by-products." Meat and poultry by-products are the bits that don't make it into human foods, and may be low in digestibility and therefore not really a useful protein source. Eggs are also a high quality protein source. Look for meat or meat meals or eggs to make up the first three ingredients. You'll find a few foods that make this requirement - but definitely avoid any that do not have high quality proteins or fats as at least most of the first 6 ingredients. Beware the use of corn gluten, soy meal, rice gluten and other vegetable or grain based proteins that may boost the protein content, but are not useful to ferrets. Also watch for added sugars (sucrose, fructose, corn syrup, etc). Basically look for: High in protein - 30-40 percent on the label nutrition analysis Protein must be high quality, highly digestible, and be animal-based (not plant-based) High in fat (at least 20 percent, perhaps up to 30 percent on the label analysis) Very low in carbohydrates and fiber (less than 3 percent fiber) There are several ferret diets available now, and some are better than others. Good diets tend to be expensive, but are worth it. To see the importance of comparing labels, MD Ferret PAWS, Inc. provides a nice comparison chart (http://www.mdferretpaws.org/care/food_treats.html) to allow you to compare a huge range of foods. The chart is long, but ranks foods for you. You can see from the chart that there is no perfect diet - very few foods come close to meeting the requirements set out above. It is really a matter of picking foods that you can readily get that are as close to ideal as possible.

    This food absolutely horrible. Ferrets eat meat, not vegetables and fruit. If you think your feeding nothing but the best, you actually feeding nothing but the worst.

    This is a terrible food for ferrets. A look at the ingredients proves this. Ferrets are carnivorous and should have a diet very low in fiber. The second ingredient in this food is rice. Not to mention the various fruits also included which adds more plant fibers and sugars, which are also something to stay away from. Your ferret may love to eat this food, but pets don't generally pick things to eat that are beneficial to them. Be a good ferret parent and get them a high quality grain free ferret or cat food. Zupreem Grain-Free Ferret Diet and Evo are two great examples.

    I have purchased this as back up food in store when my mail order food has had a delay. The food is rather large for a tiny ferret mouth. I have 2 ferrets and on multiple locations the triangle shaped pieces have gotten lodged in the roofs of my poor ferrets mouths! They are just the right size and shape to get stuck in between their teeth! Fortunately we were in the room and noticed our poor little ferrets struggling to try and figure out what to do to remove the food on their own. Never buying this brand again I can't buy something that's going to potentially make my fur babies suffer if I'm not home at the time to notice it.
