A ferret’s natural diet (determined by looking at their cousin, the European polecat, from which the domestic ferret is genetically nearly indistinguishable) consists of rats, mice, frogs, snakes, fish, and other small animals. Feeding your ferret a high quality food is one of the most important things you can do for their health. Nowhere on that list will you find corn, wheat, rice, soy, or any grain which is the bulk of many commercial ferret foods.
Many experts believe excess carbohydrates in their diet is the most likely reason that we see such a high incidence of insulinoma in ferrets.


All pets benefit from improved diet, but ferrets, in particular, suffer heavily when their food is poor quality. They believe it is best for their pet to provide a diet which resembles as closely as possible the food eaten by their wild ancestors. There is a growing belief that a relationship exists between poor diet and other common health problems as well. Most cat foods do not meet these requirements, the exception being a very few high-quality kitten foods.


An excellent resource for help in choosing an appropriate food is the MDFerretPaws Food Comparison Chart. Although it hasn’t been updated in several years it will still give you a good idea of what to look for in comparing foods.
