Ferret Supplies

Help your ferret live his best life by being prepared with all the right ferret supplies and gear. Chewy carries the best ferret supplies for setting up a home for your ferret, plus all the essential ferret products you’ll need on an ongoing basis. You can also find loads of cool ferret accessories to make life with your pet easier and more enjoyable.

Start by finding a roomy cage for your ferret—preferably a multi-level enclosure with ramps and good ventilation. We carry a great selection of ferret cages on our site to help you in your quest. Once you’ve chosen a suitable cage for your ferret, you’ll need to set up places for your pet to drink, eat, sleep, nest and do his business when nature calls. A cage-mounted ferret water bottle is an easy way to give water, or you may prefer to use small animal bowls for both water and ferret food instead.

You’ll need to fill the bottom of your ferret cage with lots of non-toxic, non-aromatic ferret bedding for burrowing and nesting, and you’ll want to put a few hideaways and hammocks in there so your ferret can get some privacy and rest. Ferrets are very playful, so they’ll also need lots of ferret toys to combat boredom along with chew toys and chew sticks for healthy teeth. You may also want to get a portable ferret playpen to give your ferret some safe time outside of his cage, plus ferret treats to use as training bribes and rewards.

Chewy also carries all the ferret grooming products you’ll need for your ferret. Grooming supplies like brushes, ferret-safe shampoo and nail trimmers will keep your buddy looking good and smelling fresh, while wellness products like supplements, calming remedies and first aid supplies will help you keep your ferret healthy at home. Shop for everything you need to keep your ferret housed, nourished, entertained and healthy at Chewy.com. We’ve got all the ferret supplies you need and a great selection of cute accessories for your little pet!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What supplies do ferrets need?

The supplies ferrets need include a roomy cage, a water bottle and/or bowls for feeding and drinking, and a hideout or hammock for sleeping and privacy. They also need lots of bedding for the bottom of the cage, healthy meat-based ferret food, and chew toys for healthy teeth. You should also put ferret toys inside the enclosure for your playful buddies and possibly a playpen for exercise outside the cage. Most ferrets can be trained to use a litter box—setting one up can help you go longer between bedding changes and cage cleanings. Be sure to choose a ferret-safe litter (not clay litter, which can harm ferrets) and get a small animal litter box that’s easy for your ferret to access.

How do you take care of ferrets?

Take care of your ferrets by setting up a comfy habitat with all the ferret essentials (hammocks, food/water station, litter box, bedding, toys) inside. Once you’ve covered basic needs, concentrate on giving your ferrets lots of time outside the cage and spend time with them playing and bonding. Ferrets spend a lot of time sleeping, but they’re also very sociable pets and need attention and interaction to stay happy and healthy. Ferrets require minimal grooming, as they clean themselves, but you may want to brush your ferrets during shedding season, trim their nails to keep them from snagging things and clean their ears to prevent buildup.

How do I set up Autoship on my ferret supplies?

Set up Autoship for your ferret supplies when you first order them by simply clicking the Autoship option at checkout. You can set the frequency of your shipments here, too, and go back to the site and change quantities and shipment timing at any time. You can also easily cancel Autoship if your needs should change. You’ll never run out of ferret food, litter, bedding or treats again with Chewy’s convenient Autoship service!
