I am doing a project for class on three different food to feed ferrets. My project had gotten me thinking differently on my own choice of kibble as mine is not even listed on a broad list of foods. O.O
One food that is around the top is Zupreme. Is this a good food at all? I looked it up on a nutient chart and it came out as a ten pointer. I also found you can order 30lb bags of the stuff for 40-50 bucks. My guys go through around a 7-8lb's of kibble a month.
Or is it better to order the wysong bunch of bags for 100 bucks?
Evo is still way to expensive, but I could possible figure something out with conbining it.
What about Chicken Soup for the Kitten Lover's Soul? Can you order that in large bags, or online for cheap?
Thanks a ton! I am still going raw, but I just realy would like to invest in new types of food.
I know Zupreem is listed as a top food in may food lists, but the 3 & 4th ingredients are ground wheat & wheat flour...my home is gluten free...for me & my animals, so I won't feed it. Wysong also has gluten in both formulas, & Chicken Soup also has grains. Evo is grain free, high protein & fat, low carb. I know it's expensive, but most good foods are. (For example, if you go to the grocery store, & look at the difference in cheaper grain fed steak, vs. free range/grass fed steak....you're going to pay more for higher quality. JMO
Evo cat & ferret formulas *appeasr* to be the same, as far as ingredients listed, but keep in mind the %'s might not be the same, & the ferret may not get the same nutritional value as the ferret formula.
Since Evo has now been bought out by Proctor & Gamble, I will no longer buy it, even if they keep it grain free. I *highly* doubt they'll keep the formula exact, P&G focuses on profit not quality...look what they did to Iams.
I've switched my dogs to raw (Darwin's, made in Seattle) & they have a cat formula, that they said people have used for ferrets (no veggies or fruits). I am adding it to the soup for all of my ferrets, & increasing the amount each time I make a batch (mixing with Pingford's Porridge). So far, they're liking it, even my rescues.
