Make a 3lb. batch of ferret food (approx. 18 - 1/3 cup servings)

  • 2lbs. (900g) raw meat of your choice
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup Better in the Raw for Ferrets


  1. Pour 1 1/2 cups cold water into a bowl, add 1/2 cup of Better in the Raw powder, and whisk.  The product will create a semi-gelatinous texture within a few minutes.
  2. Add 2lbs. (900g) raw meat of your choice, ground or chopped.  Stir gently until well combined.
  3. Portion into daily servings. 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup will feed one adult ferret per day. This can be split into two or more servings.
  4. Freeze for storage. Thaw to room temperature before feeding. Caution: Do not leave this raw food at room temperature for longer than 1 hour.

    Choosing the Meat

    Chicken, turkey, beef, venison, lamb or pork are all good choices. The meat must be fresh, raw and fit for human consumption. Use ground or cut into small cubes. We recommend feeding a variety of meats and rotating these choices if possible. Meat should be no greater than 15-20% fat content. When transitioning ferrets to this raw diet, poultry has proven to be the best option.

    Avoid feeding raw fish and mixing different kinds of meat into one meal. The ferret is a carnivore and the digestive system is not designed to tolerate the consumption of vegetables or grains.
