I think i have been giving mine the wrong food
i feed mine raw rabbit chicken wood pigeon.you can allso buy dry food
Hope this helps
As ferrets are obligate carnivores, they need a diet that is high in protein and fat, and low in carbohydrates and fibre. Most people choose a packaged kibble diet for their pet, but a popular alternative method of feeding is the whole prey diet, which consists primarily of raw meat and eggs. When choosing a packaged kibble, you should ensure that the first five ingredients listed are meat-based, and that the nutritional analysis lists at least 25% protein, 15% fat, and no more than 5% fibre
what he means is give em a dead chicken or pigeon they love it
Hello you can feed them dry ferret food mine like james wellbeloved they also like cat biscuits good quality meaty cat food chicken mince or tuna.They are carnivores so only need meat protein.they also have a very fast metabolism so need to have food available all the time.

Cat food is ok once in a while. gives the digestive system a break
or do you mean Dry Cat food??
either was hand feeding kits last year on wet cat food and lost 10 out of 12
and dry food is bad as there is not enough meat or protein in it!!!!
im sorry your wrong! when fed raw meat its not bad to give them dry food as this helps to keep there poo more firm. I think you will find ferret dry food is very simalor to cat food, the only difference is........ the picture. Sorry i disagree with people giving wrong information out.
if you where hand feeding young kits they needed Lactol.... a replacer milk maybe as a supliment then more might have survived.
Mine are fed ferret biscits, game and rabbit, cat food, cat milk, offal, chicken wings and dog bones from the butcher.
Mine are on ferret kibble, beef mince, raw eggs, raw/cooked chicken and tuna.
