Our Ferret Diet Nutrition Philosophy

Marshall Premium Ferret Diet
Hand-crafted with the freshest ingredients.

Our hand-crafted small batch process seals in every last bit of nutritional goodness, making it the highest quality ferret food.

Our philosophy:

We believe in the strong human-animal bond that has driven us to become the world's foremost authority on ferret nutrition. We're constantly pushing for the highest quality ingredients for our diet and are always seeking ways to serve our customers and their pets better. Feeding a ferret a high-quality diet can help extend the life of your ferrets. We've seen it first hand because we've tried all other brands on the market.

It's our goal is to provide you and your ferret a high-protein ferret diet that's easily digestible and delivers the highest amount of nutrition. Each ingredient is sourced in the United States.

How we do it.

We've done our research. Our diet was developed by a respected team of veterinarians, nutritionists, and ferret experts. It has a high protein content and ideal balance of essential amino acids, making it the perfect diet for ferrets in all stages of life.

Our diet is hand-crafted in small batches using a patented low heat process that retains vital nutrients that other diets don't. We also use fresh chicken. In fact, it takes 3 lbs of fresh chicken to make every 4 lb bag.

Did you know that most other ferret food is made in huge batches and stored in warehouses for months at a time? Most of our bags of diet that you find in the store were made within 30 days of the purchase, so freshness is always guaranteed.
Healthy Ferret
Key ingredients that we use in our food and why.

Chicken. Our first three ingredients are chicken. We use chicken by-products (organs only) because the amino acids are more prevalent in the organ meats than any part of the chicken. Organ meats also mimic a ferret's diet in the wild. Animals of prey usually pick body parts to balance their nutritional intake.
Corn Meal. In long-term studies, corn provides a strong complement to protein sources while also promoting digestive health. We use corn as a binder to keep the pellets from breaking down in the package. It's a small amount compared to our key ingredient, chicken, and it will not harm your ferret.
Dried Beet Pulp. Beet Pulp is considered to be the finest source of fiber for ferrets. It contains both soluble and insoluble fiber to help support a healthy digestive system.

When it comes to ferret health, protein is the word of the day, and our signature diet is packed with 40% protein. Like our other diet, Carnivore Plus features fresh chicken as its #1 ingredients and contains Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids for healthy skin and a shiny coat, with added vitamins and minerals for increased immune support. It's grain-free, GMO-free and gluten-free, with no fillers, wheat, soy, or sprayed-on rendered fat. It's everything a ferret diet should have and nothing it shouldn't.

Ferrets love the taste of fresh chicken, and our Select Chicken Formula is perfect for the fussiest of ferrets who have discerning palates. It's an excellent source of nutrition for ferrets of any age, rich in Omega 3 and amino acids for healthy skin and a shiny coat.

Just like senior people and dogs, senior ferrets have special dietary needs. Made especially for ferrets ages four years and up, this formula delivers a tasty dietary staple that fits the bill. Formulated with 10% less fat and protein than the original Premium Ferret Diet, it helps keep ferrets happy, slim and healthy well into their golden years. This special formula is also an ideal choice for overweight and less active ferrets.
