Caring for ferrets, naturally

Unlike other pets, ferrets are not wild animals that have become tamed and there are no wild ferrets. Ferrets are believed to have descended from polecats.

  • Enjoy the presence of other ferrets but often like their own ‘home’ area
  • Alert, playful and engaging, very curious
  • Natural predators
  • Scent is used for communication

It all adds up to some core essentials that will help keep your ferret happy and healthy…


Why our ferret foods are second to none

We ask a lot of our ferret diets. They need to be healthy and taste delicious. As they are natural meat-eaters ferrets need to be fed a high protein diet and important nutrients like taurine.

  • High protein
  • No added sugar – tasty because of the flavour of high-quality natural ingredients
  • Nutritionally balanced with all the vitamins and minerals they need
