Ferrets are carnivores and their staple diet needs to contain meat protein and they also need a constant supply of clean fresh water. Feeding a meat only diet without calcium can lead to the softening of the bones. The solution is a single extruded nugget diet containing all of the protein and supplements the ferret requires.
Ferrets have short digestive tracts which means it is difficult for them to break down and absorb nutrients from plant-based proteins.
Supa Ferret, Ferret Buffet is a single component extruded diet which helps deliver balanced nutrition. This premium complete ferret food is made from high quality ingredients and is fully supplemented with calcium for healthy teeth and bones. The product contains high levels of quality chicken which provides the essential high protein levels that ferrets need. It also contains great beneficial ingredients like yucca to eliminate faecal odours, Taurine to maintain coat condition and Profeed, a prebiotic, to help stimulate the beneficial gut bacteria. If you’re feeding a good ferret food, then additional vitamins aren’t necessary, but FerreTone is often used as a treat or distraction for toenail clipping time.
Ferrets are very easy to train!
On average a ferret can live from about 6 to 8 years but some have been known to live as long as 11-12 years.
