Ferrets can be amazing pets
Ferrets are wonderful pets that will provide you with endless hours of love and entertainment. However, it takes a lot of work, time, money and above all dedication to own a ferret – they are not the perfect pet for everyone. We strongly encourage doing your research before purchasing any pet, and hope that you can find the answers to all of your questions here at Holistic Ferret Forum. We believe in balancing Nature and Nurture by providing safe and enriching environments, proper health care, and a natural diet that will maximize your ferret’s health and lifespan.
Be sure to stop by the forum or our Facebook Group and say hello! We have a strong, friendly community and all newcomers are welcome. In the forum we will answer your questions, laugh at your ferrety stories, help you through the many obstacles of being a “ferrent,” and guide you towards providing the healthiest diet and best care possible for your pets.
What is the Holistic Ferret Forum?
We are all a group of ferret and animal lovers who have decided to come together to create a great community. We support one another where and how we can. If you have questions, we (hopefully) have some answers. You will never be ignored here.
While we are primarily a raw/whole prey feeding forum, we do try to make all feel welcome here, as we all only want what is best for our fur/feather/scale kids. This encompasses all types of feeding, including live. If you choose to start your own feeding colonies, there are members on board who can help guide you in that. If you only wish to feed pre-killed whole prey, raw, commercial raw, or your own premix, someone can help you choose out the best places from which to order your food.
If you do feel you have to feed kibble, we’ve also got a link to some of the better ones out there. While feeding kibble is discouraged where possible, you will not be made to feel judged, or unwelcome. We simply hope that after reading all the info, you will come to your own conclusions about diet. Never let someone else tell you what to think. Do your research, and make your own decisions.
Welcome to your journey to a healthier, Holistic Ferret.

By: Shawnda McCollum It’s the time of year when those of us in the Northern Hemisphere start hunkering down for winter. We spend more time indoors and look for ways to cozy up the house as the temperatures drop outside. For many, that means burning candles, using wax melts, plug-ins, or diffusing essential oils (EO’s) […]

While all of these benefits are incredibly important, my own experience with […]

This often happens when people haven’t taken the time to fully hear or inspect the issue or situation at […]
