My terrible trio ( ferret's ) quickly took to this food and I love that it's what they should be eating as obligate carnivores. I actually make this food as part of a dry mixture that they eat daily. In addition to this food I also add freeze dried liver, Vital Essentials nibblets, and some Stella and Chewy's. I think this is the perfect alternative to handling raw food products. If you want what's best for your ferret's than make sure you feed them appropriately.
