Have you checked the label on your ferrets’ food lately? Take a look, because some foods contain molasses or syrup or other sugary ingredients. This extra sugar in a ferret’s diet can lead to overeating and obesity. It can also lead to dental problems too. Because ferrets have a very short digestive tract, they need a diet that is very high in protein and low in fibre. Selective has 36% protein and very low fibre levels at just 2%.
Specialist vet Molly Varga says “Ferrets are increasingly popular as pets in the UK, and have been kept as working animals for many years. We know that they have high protein requirements and they are often called ‘Supercarnivores’ for that reason. As a vet who treats ferrets I need to be able to recommend a suitable food for my patients. With is high protein levels, lack of added sugar and palatable formulation, Supreme Ferret Food fulfils that criteria.”
