Now that you have your ferret, you will want him stay fit and healthy.  One of the many ways of achieving this is with the correct diet.

When it comes to feeding your pet ferret, you will need to make sure that you are giving him the best ferret diet possible.

After all, you will want to make sure that he stays fit and healthy, and not suffer through a poor diet.  And to achieve this, you will need to make sure that his food is rich in fat, meat-based protein, and vitamins and minerals.

Below are some tips on what, and what not to feed your pet ferret.

1.  Do not feed your ferret on fruits or vegetables, or anything that contains starch or sugar.      Feeding your ferret with the wrong foods can lead to a number of health difficulties, including obesity. The wrong types of food can also shorten a ferrets life span.

2.  Ferrets are classed as “obligate carnivores” which means that they must eat meat.  Most of their nutritional needs are supplied through a meat-based diet.  From a scientific standpoint, they must eat meat because they are “hyper carnivores”.  Ferrets over many centuries have become adapted to a very strict meat-eating diet.

3.  If you intend to feed your ferret on kibble, be sure to moisten it with water first.  Not only is kibble very abrasive, but your ferret will find it difficult to digest if it is not moistened.  This could bring on some very uncomfortable, intestinal related problems.

4.  Some people believe that dry kibble will help to wear down tartar build up on a ferrets teeth.  The truth is though that dry kibble will only wear down your ferrets teeth, it can be that abrasive.

5.  Always avoid feeding your ferret with products that contain corn, or that are made up of frozen fish.

These are just some of things that you should be aware of if you are new to ferret keeping.  To ensure that your ferret lives a long and happy life, just follow the basic guidelines for your ferrets continued good health.
