Known for their cyclonic way of bursting out of their cages and loved for their natural charm, ferrets are adored by many for their playfulness and heaps of energetic shenanigans. As ferrets have a relatively short gastrointestinal tract that allows them to digest food quickly, ferrets have an equally quick metabolism to fuel their bursts of energy. This is why giving your ferret food that is balanced in accordance with his nutritional needs is vital to his overall health and well-being. Unlike that of rabbits and guinea pigs, the ferret diet calls for high amounts of animal-based proteins and fats, while it also calls for very little amounts of fiber and carbohydrates. Furthermore, it is important for ferret food to consist of food sources that are highly digestible in order to be processed properly through their smaller digestive systems. As a ferret’s quick metabolism gives him the tendency to eat frequently, it is imperative for him to have access to fresh ferret food at all times. As many pet parents understand, excellent ferret care entails a strict adherence to these special nutritional requirements. Promote the health, happiness and vitality of your pet ferret with exceptional ferret care and well-balanced food!
