Re:Grandma Lucy's Freeze dried food?

It's not that the vegetables are bad (you'll see that ferret kibbles and other raw foods contain vegetables) - what's bad is the amount of vegetables.
I don't see what percent chicken it is (most will say 90% chicken or something), but you can tell by the guaranteed analysis:
Crude Protein (min): 26%
Crude Fat (min): 12%
Crude Fiber (max): 6%
Moisture (max): 7.5%
That's high on the fiber (therefore lots of vegetables in the mix).
The protein and fat are also not high enough for a ferret. AFA guidelines are at least 36% protein and 20% fat. Fiber should be around 3%.
PSSST - check out my siggy for inexpensive freeze dried dog, cat, and ferret foods.
