Just ordered some this past week. Nothing in the listing of ingredients that isn't safe to feed to your ferrets. The porridge isn't meant to be the only source of food for your ferrets. Use it for a supplement to what you now feed.

Thought I would try the Pingford Porridge since we already feed our's a soup supplement. We give our 18 a mixture of baby chicken or beef with gravy, mixed with some baby rice cereal and thinned with warm water. Add some ferretone or ferrevite to it and they lap it up.

We feed it a couple of times a week as a treat for breakfast when we open the cages for the day. A good idea to get the furkids use to a soup if or when they ever get sick.

I was wondering if anyone has heard of this ferret food. It's
supposed to be made with "human grade" foods such as chicken, turkey,
beef, liver, beef fat and whole cooked eggs.

Guaranteed analysis: crude fat min 42%, crude protein min 40%, crude
fiber max 2%, moisture max 3%.

I'm a little confused by their web site link, which is ... because the name on their banner says
PinGford's Porridge. Typo, I would assume.

Anyone have an opinion on these ingredients? And what of taurine? I
can't tell if this food is for sick ferrets, or as a whole diet.
Since it appears to be a wet food, I don't see how it can be left
safely out for ferrets to 'free feed' on.
