THESE ALMOST KILLED MY FERRET. I am so glad it wasn't long ago that I heard of those sketchy Chinese pig ears that were killing people's dogs... The symptoms mimicked a liver intoxication... Turns out these are not safe for ferrets!!! It was the 4th day where he was fed one and he puked 4 times in one morning. Shakes, lethargy, everything. I have never been more scared in my life. PLEASE DO NOT FEED THESE TO YOUR PET.
For new ferret owners, or people like me who don't read the ingredients, this is not what ferrets can actually digest. Sure they want to eat this, it's nummy... then they poop funny, because they are obligate carnivores. Maybe one in a blue moon or so. Tapioca is not raw meat.
Honestly, my girl seems to really enjoy the treats, although I don't think she's really picky either. sometimes I will use the treat to wake her up when she's hiding somewhere I can't get too and she comes out all excited. Definitely a fun addition to her diet. The only thing is that I could not find how much of a stick I should be giving to her based on her size either on the website or the packaging itself. I just cut them into small pieces for her and give her one every couple of days or so.
I bought these for my new ferret (9 weeks old) to try, and they're a hit. He's still teething and I needed to find him something else to chew on besides me. I used to buy the regular (chicken flavoured) ones for my other ferrets years ago, and they loved chewing on them too. I had one ferret who had a nightly routine where he would come to see me just before bedtime and stare at (well, more like harass) me until I gave him his 1/4 piece of N-Bone, which he would gnaw away at then be happily off to bed. I cut the sticks into quarters as they're made with corn and wheat (which isn't healthy for ferrets, since they're obligate carnivores) and eating too much can cause "seedy" poops as plant matter can't be digested. To avoid this, I don't allow the ferrets to have more than 1/4 of a stick per day. It's still a big enough piece for a treat. If you have a ferret, I would recommend giving these (in any flavour) a try!
I bought it a little while ago and my ferrets love it and it was very cheap, but every time I want to buy another I come back and see that the price has risen! It's going to be cheaper to just go to Petland. It would be nice if there was some price stability, I'd buy it every month!
Technically it's not me that loves this product, but my ferrets, though I really enjoy watching them go nuts over their 'sticks' as we call them. I only bought the one pack as a tester, so now I need to lay in a supply of them.
