Widely recommended by clubs National Ferret Welfare Society International Ferret WelfareNational Ferret School. Why is Ferret Complete healthier?Ferret Complete is the first British food formulated specifically for ferretseU 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 ferretseU 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. Ferret Complete is loved by ferrets and recommended by experts. Ferret Complete is not only healthy and nutritious it is also very tasty. Coated in delicious turkey gravy and made in their favourite star shape it is irresistible to ferrets. The food is recommended by a wide variety of clubs societies and rescue centres.
