Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list]RE: ProPlan Turkey Barley Nutrition

The 2 big things against Proplan Turkey and Barley
are low protein (31%) and low fat (14%).
Have you tried Hill's Prescription Diet feline d/d or
Eukanuba's response feline lamb and barley?
The d/d canned food has a dry matter protein of 39%
and a fat 28% level. It is a lamb and rice product. The
Eukanuba can lamb and barley has a dry matter protein level
of 41% and a fat level of 27%. Both of these are closer to
what you want for a ferret food without having chicken or poultry
as the protein source.
Food for thought,
