James Wellbeloved natural ferret food - Naturally healthy complete dry ferret diet
Sizes Available: 2kg & 10kg bags
Ferret Complete is the first British dry ferret food formulated specifically for ferrets.
Ferrets have higher energy needs and a shorter digestive tract than cats or dogs and being carnivores their primary protein source must be meat. They need a high energy diet with a high protein and fat content which Ferret Complete provides. The main protein source in Ferret Complete is the finest quality turkey meat meal, to give a higher protein level of 36%.
As ferrets' principal source of energy, fat is a vital ingredient in their nutrition. Ferret Complete has a high fat level of 19%, derived mainly from turkey fat. We also include whole ground linseed for soft, shiny coats.
Many owners used to feed day-old chicks and raw meat. These are difficult to keep fresh, can attract flies and cause stomach upsets. It is much healthier to feed Ferret Complete, which stays fresh in the bowl and produces firmer, less odorous faeces.
To help maintain your ferret's health and longevity, we now add a natural source of M.O.S. (Manno-Oligo-Saccharides). This helps to stimulate your ferret's immune system and balance the bacteria present in the large intestine, reduces the build-up of pathogens such as salmonella and e.coli, and increases the beneficial lactobacillus.
Ideal for all lifestages

Ferret Complete feeding guidelines
From 3 weeks:
Offer small amounts of food soaked until soft with warm water or broth, gradually decreasing the amount of liquid used. Replace any uneaten damp food with fresh after a few hours. From 4 weeks, offer only dry food.
Up to 16 weeks:
Free feed, allowing animals to clean out the bowls every 2 or 3 days to maintain food freshness. At this age, daily food consumption will be approx 7% of body weight (e.g. approx. 35g of food for 500g ferret).
Free feed, but restrict diet to approx 5% of body weight if animals get too heavy (e.g. approx 75g of food for 1500g ferret).
Lactation or final 2 weeks of gestation:
Free feed without restriction.
The above guide can only be approximate as requirements vary from ferret to ferret Store in cool dry place; keep closed between uses. Supply plenty of clean, fresh drinking water at all times.
