What is a good feeding regime for ferrets?

Here’s how to find a good feeding regime for your ferrets.

The simple answer to the question what is a good feeding regime for ferrets? is to
give them access to food 24 hours a day­. Ferrets have fast metabolisms so they will need to eat
often and so it is best to give them access to the food they need as opposed to giving them a
specific feeding time.

Given the energetic nature of ferrets they will tend to burn off a lot of what they eat quickly
and because they tend to eat what they need you generally don’t need to supervise too closely. It is
vital that you do this as opposed to the once or twice a day feeding that you would do for a cat or a
dog as this can cause digestive problems.

So in short the right answer for the question what is a good feeding regime for ferrets? is to give them access to the food they need­ remember to give them a bowl they can dig around in without spilling, give them the right kind of food and plenty of water and your ferret should stay healthy!
