How to switch your ferret to a new food
Ferrets imprint on their regular food, which means that they will often initially refuse all other foods. Attempting to switch your ferret's diet abruptly can cause your ferret to refuse all food, which can lead to gastrointestinal issues including diarrhea or possibly even gastric ulcers.

When you switch your ferret's diet, start by adding a very small amount of the new food to the old food. A good guideline to follow is a ratio of one part new food to nine parts old. Over a period of two to four weeks, depending on how quickly your ferret takes to the new food, slowly increase the amount of new food and decrease the amount of old food until the old food has been completely eliminated from the mix.

Don't be surprised if you see loose stool during the switch. A few loose stools are par for the course as your ferret's body adjusts to the new food. However, if the loose stool develops into regular diarrhea, contact your veterinarian.

Ferrets have a unique digestive system; therefore, their nutritional needs are different from those of other similar-sized animals. Be careful that the treats you offer do not compromise his diet and overall health.
Ferrets have a very short, simple digestive tract which limits the amount of food they can eat at any one time.
If your ferret is not one of the two natural colors of ferrets - sable or albino - it can be hard to distinguish what color she is.
