that has over 40% protein. EVO should NOT be used for ferrets. Give as a
treat. That's all.

It has over 40% protein - and since that is bad for ferrets, that rules it
out right there.

Protein over 40% is not bad for ferrets unless there is an underlying kidney
problem. Where did you get that information?

If you analyze a ferret's natural diet, it is far over 40% protein.
