Taurine is and essential amino acid that is only found naturally in
meat. We
have found that 50 to 100 mg per day is the normal range for
Taurine. I
would not recommend adding 200 mg per day in addition to what you
are getting
in your food. If you are feeding Totally Ferret they are getting
about 75 to
80 mg of Taurine which is optimum. If you are feeding something
else you
will have to call the manufacturer and find out what level they have
