Ferret addicted to Dog Croquettes - Saturday, March 18, 2017 1:58 PM
"Lonely Ferret" runs loose around the barns during the day. Recently he has found his way down the yard to the house where he has started pinching the dog biscuits and gets quite bad tempered if I pick him up and take him away from them. Will they hurt him or can he safely eat them? They are a Complete Dog Food type biscuit.

Unfortunately dog food isn't safe for ferrets to eat, a vital hing is missing in dog food that ferrets need. And that is taurine.
Also ferrets are suppose to have a high protein, high fat diet with low carbs which dog food isn't since dogs aren't 100% carnivorous animals and will eat other things that ferrets can't digest.
