Check what you are feeding. An active ferret requires 18 to 22%
fat with a
range of 33 to 38% protein with 85% coming from animal sources such
chicken-by-product meal, chicken liver meal, eggs, chicken or
poultry by
products. Just adding fat supplements or vitamins is not as
effective as
when included in the food.
