Ferret Friendly Feeding Tips
- Dry ferret food should be accessible to your ferret 24 hours a day. Ferrets can eat as much as 10 times a day. Moistened food can spoil if left out, so be sure to empty any moistened food that’s been sitting for over three hours and replenish with fresh, dry food.
- Expect to find food stashed in some of the strangest places – chair cushions, behind doors, etc. Anywhere they can store excess food for later.
- Keep fresh water accessible at all times. As much food as your ferret consumes in a day, he needs at least three times that amount in water. A ferret that isn’t getting enough water often won’t eat.
- If you own multiple ferrets, observe who is eating what. If a particular ferret doesn’t seem to be eating, place him in a separate cage for a closer watch; if necessary, contact your local veterinarian.
