Ferrets require high protein (meat source) and high energy diets. Vita Plus Ferret Formula is a nutritious and balanced diet designed specifically for a ferret's GI tract and specific digestive requirements. This high energy feed is rich in meat based amino acids and fortified with vitamins and minerals. Yucca enriches the diet, Spirulina (antioxidant) enhances the immune system, and essential fatty acids contribute to a healthy skin and coat. The unique pellet shape is beneficial to ferret chewing and there is no added fish meal - meaning fewer odors in the cage. Unlike other small mammals kept as pets, Ferrets are carnivores. In the wild they eat rabbits, mice, rats and other small mammals. A domestic Ferret's biology is no different than its wild cousin's. They require a diet that is a minimum of 30% protein and 18% fat. Meat based protein is preferable to vegetable based because the Ferrets utilize meat based protein better. Fresh water should always be available.
