Naturally healthy complete dry ferret diet

Ferret Complete is the first British dry ferret food formulated specifically for ferrets.

Ferrets have higher energy needs and a shorter digestive tract than cats or dogs and being carnivores their primary protein source must be meat. They need a high energy diet with a high protein and fat content which Ferret Complete provides. The main protein source in Ferret Complete is the finest quality turkey meat meal, to give a higher protein level of 36%.

As ferrets' principal source of energy, fat is a vital ingredient in their nutrition. Ferret Complete has a high fat level of 19%, derived mainly from turkey fat. We also include whole ground linseed for soft, shiny coats.

Many owners used to feed day-old chicks and raw meat. These are difficult to keep fresh, can attract flies and cause stomach upsets. It is much healthier to feed Ferret Complete, which stays fresh and produces firmer, less odorous faeces.

To help maintain your ferret's health and longevity, we now add a natural source of M.O.S. (Manno-Oligo-Saccharides). This helps to stimulate your ferret's immune system and balance the bacteria present in the large intestine, reduces the build-up of pathogens such as salmonella and e.coli, and increases the beneficial lactobacillus.

Ferret Complete is the first British dry ferret food formulated specifically for ferrets.

Well, not our`s exactly but definitely our ferrets! We`ve been buying James Wellbeloved on and off (mostly on) for our various ferrets over the last 6 years. It stays fresh for a long time (we buy in bulk so peg-close the big bag over a couple of months) and we`ve never had a quality issue. We do alternate the ferret`s food on the advice of the guidebooks and mix up the food here & there with JW as a base.

You probably won`t believe this but my ferrets stopped eating fresh chicken wings in favour of this. I have two ferret a hob and a jill and for the last week have been giving them a chicken wing apiece as well as a lower end dry food. All that was left of the wings was a single bone and all the dry food would be gone. After using jwb food they just leave the wings and eat the jwb dry food. Amazing.

I have had ferrets for about 3 years now, I have always feed them James Wellbeloved and I will keep on doing so because it gives them all they need to be happy healthy ferrets, and I don't have to give them any supplements to this. (Even though I do give them treats everytime they use the toilet).This was actually the first time I purchased from this website, as I just found out about it, but I recommend 100% and I will most definitely keep on buying. Quick and affordable!

Thanks Pet-supermarket, I usually buy this product from a local small retailer and was paying £3.25 per kilo. Opted for buying the large bags with £10.00 off. Its the best food on the market my 6 ferrets cant get enough of it.

We have been running a ferret rescue for over 12yrs. James WellBeloved has always been our number one choice for their food. It is well balanced, therefore ferrets coats are always in tip top condition, and they are always full of beans dooking and jumping around enjoying life as only a ferret knows how. When we rehome we always recommend this food and do send them on their way with a bagful. This company is great at keeping the prices down and their delivery service is 5 star. Keep up the good work
