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.

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.
