Ferrets are the domesticated form of the polecat, which comes from the weasel family. They are obligate carnivores, which means that meat is the primary source of nutrition in the diet. Their all-meat diet is naturally high in fat and protein with very little carbohydrate and fibre. Ferrets fed on home-made diets are often prone to nutritional deficiency, so may benefit from fatty acid, vitamin, mineral or taurine supplementation. Wombaroo Small Carnivore Food can be mixed in with wet food to help balance out nutritional deficiencies. Carni-vite can be mixed in with raw meat to make a balanced diet. Young ferrets are fed a milk that is also high in protein and fat, which is nutritionally similar to Dog Milk. For this reason we recommend to feed orphaned ferrets on Wombaroo Dog Milk Replacer. This product also contains elevated levels of taurine which is an essential nutrient that is required by developing ferret kits. See under resources for more information on hand rearing ferrets.

- Balances meat or raw diets.

About Meat Diets
Carnivores have evolved to eat a range of whole prey items that include bones, internal organs and meat, thus providing a balanced diet. Pets, however, are often fed only the meat portion, which may be deficient in minerals (such as calcium), vitamins, fatty acids and taurine. Carni-Vite supplies a range of essential nutrients that, when added to meat, provides a complete and balanced diet for carnivores.
Use to supplement meat or "raw" diets, which may be deficient in vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients. Do not use with already-fortified diets or other vitamin/mineral preparations, as excessive dietary vitamins & minerals may be detrimental to an animal's health.
Add 5g (2 rounded enclosed spoons) of Carni-Vite per 500g of de-boned, eviscerated meat or fish. Mix in well.
