The best ferret food – Orlando Sentinel
Ferret owners should understand the relationship between a ferret and food. A ferret is considered an obligatory carnivore (much like a cat), which means that its natural diet is high in animal protein and fat, but extremely low in grains, sugar, nuts, and fruits. Carnivores have shorter digestive tracts, which means they are never far from being empty when it comes to meals. A ferret wants to eat all day, so food and water should always be available.
