James Wellbeloved Ferret Complete has all a ferret needs. Ferrets have higher energy needs and a shorter digestive tract than cats or dogs and being carnivores their primary protein source must be meat. They need a high energy diet with a high protein and fat content which Ferret Complete provides. The main protein source in Ferret Complete is the finest quality turkey meat meal, to give a higher protein level of 36%.

As ferrets' principal source of energy, fat is a vital ingredient in their nutrition. Ferret Complete has a high fat level of 19%, derived mainly from turkey fat. We also include whole ground linseed for soft, shiny coats.

Many owners used to feed day-old chicks and raw meat. These are difficult to keep fresh, can attract flies and cause stomach upsets. It is much healthier to feed Ferret Complete, which stays fresh in the bowl and produces firmer, less odorous faeces.

To help maintain your ferret's health and longevity, we now add a natural source of M.O.S. (Manno-Oligo-Saccharides). This helps to stimulate your ferret's immune system and balance the bacteria present in the large intestine, reduces the build-up of pathogens such as salmonella and e.coli, and increases the beneficial lactobacillus.

James Wellbeloved Ferret Complete is not only healthy and nutritious, it is also very tasty. Coated in delicious turkey gravy and made in their favourite star shape, it is irresistible to ferrets.

  • great food
    My four hobs love this food, they are mostly raw fed so are fussy when it comes to kibble and this is the only one they eat

  • The Best
    This is the best ferret food as far as the ferrets are concerned, they love it, if given the choice they choose this one.

  • One of my guys has irritable bowel syndrome and for a long time I tried everything to help him. Sensitivity food etc but he never did a solid poop for about 6 months. I got a free JWB sample and within 3 days his poop was perfect. Because it is Turkey based and not chicken it's perfect for his sensitive stomach. My others are all healthy and happy on it too x

  • We have been running a ferret rescue for over 12yrs. James WellBeloved has always been our number one choice for their food. It is well balanced, therefore ferrets coats are always in tip top condition, and they are always full of beans dooking and jumping around enjoying life as only a ferret knows how. When we rehome we always recommend this food and do send them on their way with a bagful. This company is great at keeping the prices down and their delivery service is 5 star. Keep up the good work
