ZuPreem Premium Ferret Diet Food
Expensive but worth it
After having used several ferret food brands, I'd have to say this is my favorite. My ferret Ninja loves it, is lean and mean, and has a soft, healthy coat. She even seemed more active after the switch, and a playful ferret is a happy ferret. Remember if you're switching your ferret to a new food to introduce them slowly. If you suddenly swap a new one from the old, there's going to be a lot of confusion and betrayed stares.
I particularly like the substitution of egg for what is usually fish product in most ferret foods, which means her litter box business isn't quite so stinky.

We started out feeding our ferrets Marshall's food, but it didn't seem too healthy for them. My exotic pet vet recommends ZuPreem, and I found a handy chart of ferret foods (by Maryland Ferret Protection and Welfare Society) that ranked ZuPreem 10/10 (for comparison, Marshall's Premium Food was rated 5/10).
My ferrets have never had any issues eating ZuPreem, and they seem to like it better than the Marshall's kind. They seem healthier since switching, too. We have definitely got brand loyalty for this product!!

Wasn't the worst but I wouldn't recommend it
Switched our fuzzies from Marshalls to this,and although the fish smell was gone, there was still a very awful smell to their litterbox. I find it extrememly expensive (I can get 8lbs of 8-1 for a LOT LESS!) and when I originaly bought it it took us a few days to get everyone to start eating it. They didn't chow down on it, and it was like repeating Marshalls Food for us all over again!
I'm not cheap when it comes to my fuzzies (I have four & love them to death) but this food was the first thing to go once we discovered 8-1. Every one loved it and ate it with no problems. We still use it to this day and I will never go back to Zupreem or Marshalls

The best stuff around that I can easily get my hands on.
There's better stuff out there but I cannot find it in a store so I guess thats that.
Our 3 ferrets love it.
Only problem is the big ole bags NEVER have coupons in them.
Though the small ones (clearance ones *hint* *hint*) all do.
$5 or $6 off a bag this expensive is well worth it.
Especially since I have 2 HUGE males and 1 lil femaile.
