Let's ferret food live food. It can be rats, mice, worms, birds, feed roaches, small fish. This food should only be purchased in pet stores. Or, even better, grow your own. Do not let your ferret wild animals (fish, insects, birds). They are carriers of many infections. It could kill the ferret.
Start ferret in a cage and there put a live feed. First, the animal would play with him, and then eat. After that, thoroughly clean the cage from the remnants of the meal.
If you are unable to give food to the ferret living creature, feed it fortecasa. Well rasarite any mess. Add carefully chopped meat. To the same place offal. It may be the liver, heart, kidneys and so on. Add in parscale milled bone, a little skin. I.e. the composition of the meals should at least approximately correspond to the whole animal.
Meat is better to take low fat. Avoid pork and lamb. These products are heavy for the stomachs of ferrets. Once a week let's get a couple of whole chicken heads. Of course, to make it better in the cage. The head can be replaced with chicken necks.
Get an toepiece vitamins for ferrets and regularly give them to your pet. Never use food or vitamins for other animals. Once or twice a week give your ferrets any fruits or vegetables, but in small quantities.
If you decide to feed your ferret dry food, first do not use other types of food. At the same time to give dry food, live food and parscale is not recommended. In order to translate ferret dry food, you need to enter them in the diet in a certain way.
On the first day fully re-hydrate with milk. Add the same volume of raw chicken breast. Such a mixture and feed the ferret. With each day decrease the amount of meat in the diet. Then every day add less and less milk until, until the ferret is completely switch to dry food.
Measure the weight of food that a ferret can eat at one time. At the next feeding give him exactly the same portion. If you give him the more he will begin to hide food in various places. Fresh water ferrets should always be free to access. Change it twice a day.
Before giving ferret food, thoroughly wash it. They have a very weak digestive tract. Dirt or infection in food of animal could kill him.
The behavior of the ferret does not depend on its method of feeding. Even if you only give him a live feed of the animal is not aggressive.
