Why Change Your Ferret's Food?
It can be a challenge trying to find food your ferret likes to eat, as well as one that provides the nutrition he needs. However, understanding a ferret's unique nutritional needs will help you choose the best food for your ferret. Ferret nutritionists recommend feeding a diet that is made from high-quality ingredients and is specially formulated for ferrets. Their short intestinal transit time requires foods that are highly digestible and allows nutrients to be absorbed quickly. Ferrets also need higher levels of protein and fat to fuel their high-energy needs.
Ferret Friendly Feeding Tips
- Dry ferret food should be accessible to your ferret 24 hours a day. Ferrets can eat as much as 10 times a day. Moistened food can spoil if left out, so be sure to empty any moistened food that's been sitting for over three hours and replenish with fresh, dry food.
- Expect to find food stashed in some of the strangest places - chair cushions, behind doors, etc. Anywhere they can store excess food for later.
- Keep fresh water accessible at all times. As much food as your ferret consumes in a day, he needs at least three times that amount in water. A ferret that isn't getting enough water often won't eat.
- If you own multiple ferrets, observe who is eating what. If a particular ferret doesn't seem to be eating, place him in a separate cage for a closer watch; if necessary, contact your local veterinarian.
