Q: Is it okay to feed ferrets fresh vegetables?
I would like to give my ferrets a daily snack but i do not know what to give them. Is there any kind of vegetable or fruit ferrets enjoy?

As everyone has stated, ferrets are absolutely carnivores. They require more protein than both cats and dogs. My ferret loved the "8 in 1 ferret treats". She also loved a dab of the Ferretvite in a tube. I used to put it on a spoon and let her lick it up while I trimmed her nails. She loved it so much she didn't even realize that her nails were being clipped. Ferret's are also crazy about raisens. It's obviously not the best treat but I gave it to mine as an extra special treat. I know a lot of other ferret owners also use them for the occasional treat.

Always check with the Vet first, I don't know much about ferrets but i know people think rabbits, I know their not the same, love veggies especially carrots and lettuce, I had a rabbit for years and HATED carrots and lettuce can really make them sick, so go on a good web or make a simple call to your Vet, and I hope you have a really good exotic animal Vet, make a big difference
