Bouncy, playful, and admittedly a little musty-smelling, ferrets are clownish carnivores who absolutely need a diet high in protein and fat. Caring ferret owners will go out of their way to seek out food containing large levels of chicken or fish, but don’t be put off by formulas containing a few high-protein and non-grain ingredients, such as peas, eggs, and potatoes. With so many varieties of ferret food available, it’s not easy to find the best option at a glance, but for the health, happiness, and longevity of your ferret friend, the time you will take to research its diet now will certainly pay for itself in the future.
