Hi Sue.........

You did not mention the ferret diet you are feeding. If it is a ferret food, it is probably ok. The only ferret diet that I am familiar with that I am not happy with is 8 in 1's regular. Their Ultimate is not too bad. (There are others I have heard about but I do not know the brands. If you stick with any of the mentioned diets here, you will
not go wrong!) Some of the better ferret diets, not in any order, are Mazuri, Totally Ferret, (Both regular and senior) The Ferret Store's Superior Choice, 8 in 1 Ultimate, and Zupreme....I am leaving out some, I am sure. There is one new one, Eagle Pack Ferret Diet but have not received my sample yet to check it out.

I like to have a mix of 2 or three different feeds so my ferrets are not imprinted to just one food. That way, if I ever run out of one for some reason, my ferrets will still be eating.

As much as I am against it, there are some very acceptable cat/kitten foods as well. Others can post about them as I am not real knowledgeable on which is which.

For our ferrets!
