Why is Ferret Complete healthier?Ferret Complete is the first British food formulated specifically for ferrets’ needs.
Since ferrets are carnivores, their primary protein source must be meat. But they have higher energy needs and a shorter digestive tract than cats or dogs. Plus their digestions are relatively inefficient at absorbing vegetable proteins. So ferrets derive little benefit from the corn and soya protein sources found in many cat and dog foods. By contrast, the main protein source in Ferret Complete is fine quality turkey meat meal, to give the correct higher protein level of 36% that ferrets need.
Fat is a principal source of energy for ferrets, so fat is a vital ingredient in their nutrition. Ferret Complete has a high fat level of 19%, derived mainly from turkey fat and fish meal. The food also includes ground whole linseed for soft, shiny coats.Up to now, many owners have fed their ferrets day-old chicks and raw meat. These attract flies and can rapidly go bad, causing stomach upsets. Plus, new evidence suggests that the egg white found in chicks can cause bald patches in ferrets’ coats. Much better to feed Ferret Complete, which stays fresh for days in the bowl. And produces firmer stools, easier for you to clean up.
To help maintain your ferret's health and longevity, we now add a natural source of M.O.S (Manno-Oligosaccharides). This helps to simulate your ferret's immune system, reduce the build up of pathogens such as salmonella and e-coli, and increase the beneficial lactobacillus.
