Ferrets are carnivores, so a diet rich in protein is usually a nutritious option. At Petco, we have a variety of dry ferret food that can help meet your energetic friend’s metabolic needs. Dry food is a great staple to have on hand because it can help keep their teeth clean. Your ferret’s food ingredients should have a meat source listed as one of the first ingredients on the label. Good ferret food usually doesn’t include corn or grains, as their bodies cannot process them. You can also supplement your ferret’s dry food with chicken to help make a wholesome meal.
You should avoid giving your ferret fruits, vegetables, carbohydrates or anything sugary, as their carnivorous tummies can’t digest them properly. Chicken, turkey or cooked eggs can be a satisfying snack, and Petco has an array of convenient ferret treats that are nutritious and delicious for your wriggly companion.
