Meat is better than commercially available treats. In this video, Dr. Laurie Hess discusses why.

Hi, I’m Dr. Laurie Hess, Director of Pet Health and Nutrition at ZuPreem. People often ask me: “What can I give my ferret as a treat?”
Now we know ferrets are carnivores, meaning they are meat-eaters and unfortunately, many of the commercially available treats for ferrets have too much sugar or too much carbohydrate in them. It’s better to feed your ferret some lean, cooked piece of meat, like a piece of turkey or chicken or a small piece of cooked egg. Those are all appropriate and contain high protein for your ferret. You can even give your ferret a slice of deli meat as a treat. These are all much better treats that your ferret will love.
