Feeding guidelines

Kits

Vitalin Ferret Food can be fed to kits from as early as 3 to 4 weeks. During the first week we would recommend feeding small quantities of fresh Vitalin Ferret Food regularly, softening the food with a little warm water. Reduce the quantity of water throughout the week and feed dry from the second week onwards.

Adults

Vitalin Ferret should be fed dry and can be given on a free feed basis, a normal adult will require between 40-60 grams per day. When Vitalin Ferret is being introduced to replace another diet it should be introduced slowly over a 7-day period to help minimise any digestive problems. Pregnant/Lactating Jills should be allowed to free feed.

Delivery of aerosols

Due to air freight restrictions aerosols cannot ever be sent abroad by Royal Mail. We appreciate your understanding.

Delivery of temperature controlled items

Some products, such as insulin and frozen food, need to be delivered in insulated packaging to prevent them from getting too warm (or too cold) during transit from us to you. Purchasing any of these items in your order will result in a £1.99 charge being added to the total to cover the high cost of the insulated packaging materials. You only pay the £1.99 once per order, regardless of how many temperature controlled items you purchase in that order.

Insulinoma

Hayley

I have a ferret that is being treated for insulinoma would this be ok as I've been told that any wheat or cereals would be bad and needs all protein, currently fed on raw meat mainly heart but hate having it in my fridge and it's hard to use before it goes off
Thank you

There is a lot of rice in this diet and it is not ideal for your ferret. It would be better perhaps to get a variety of fresh meats and freeze them into small, individual portions so they keep better.
