FAQs About Ferret Food

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.

Ferrets have a high metabolism, which causes them to digest their food at a rapid rate. Most ferrets need to be fed 6 to 8 times a day, and it can be a good idea to have fresh water and your ferret’s favorite food frequently available so they can graze as needed. As always, consult your veterinarian to find the optimal ferret diet for your unique pet. Ferret food doesn’t have to be complicated—Petco has an array of options, so your pet gets the nutrition they need.

A secure and comfortable habitat that allows your pet to enjoy good ferret food can also help digestion. Petco has a roomy selection of ferret habitats that can house your pet’s essentials and give them space to feed, and most are designed with easy cleaning in mind. Our ferret bedding can also help keep things clean and tidy during feeding time while reducing odor. We also carry lots of fun ferret toys to stimulate and entertain your pet so that they can work up an appetite. Tunnels, balls and chew toys will engage your clever little weasel and can be a fun activity for the whole family. We even carry ferret harnesses so your slinky buddy can experience the great outdoors with you after enjoying your ferret’s favorite food.
