Questions & Answers

5 Customer Questions

What is the shelf life of this?
Answer by ChewyJan 23, 2019
All Wysong products are stabilized from degradation with their natural preservative, Oxherphol™. This potent antioxidant consists of vitamin E tocopherol epimers, fat-soluble vitamin C, organic chelators, and natural botanical oleoresins like rosemary and sage. Tests have proven it to be more effective than most chemical preservatives, especially with regard to fatty acid oxidation. Also, Wysong diets are made fresh to order and not warehoused. They are quickly packaged and shipped after processing and not bulk stored and packaged later. This prevents oxygen and light degradation. When packaged, the product is voided of nutrient-destructive oxygen and sealed into our exclusively designed Nutri-Paks™, which further protect against oxygen and light degradation. Additionally, to help keep your food as fresh as possible, you should keep Wysong products in a cool, dry, dark environment, and might even consider storing unopened packages in the freezer to further extend shelf life.

What is the carbohydrate percent of this food?
Answer by ChewyDec 18, 2018
The carbohydrate content of this formula is approximately 22%.

Is there a suppliment I should feed my ferret with this to get an all-around well-balanced diet? Would just this be enough? or do you reccomend a different product of yours for a balanced diet. I have an almost 2 year old fuzz-butt
Answer by ChewyAug 04, 2018
Each and every ingredient in this formula is carefully chosen to provide a complete and balanced diet with optimum nutrition.

Recent change?

My ferrets have been eating this for years. The most recent bag's kibble seems darker and the picky eater ferret won't eat it and has been having diarrhea. Did the recipe just change?

Ferret won't touch it

Veggies bad for ferrets !

Wysong digestive track ferret food ingredients are great! But this kind. Has vegetables. Corn meal , tomato’, potato. Beet pulp. Every single one of Those product are HORRIBLE for your ferret and they cannot digest! They eat meat ! Never veggies. There digestive system cannot/ will not digest them. Stay away from any dried beet pulp, corn meal , dried tomato, dried potato etc.. why make one food good without these ingredients but make two other ferret foods that contain products that can make you ferret very ill? And charge 30$ a bag! Don’t sell a bag of food for a ferrets digestive track saying how sensitive it is. Then make 2 other foods with all of the bad products they knowingly cannot have ! Do NOT buy this one!

Ferret's love it!

I wanted to try this food for my ferrets since it seemed very highly recommended. My boys love this stuff, I have it mixed with another kibble and they can't get enough!

Be weary if feeding to senior ferrets

I bought this because the Wysong Epien Disgestive Support caused all 3 of my ferrets to have frequent diarrhea. Assuming this was due to Disgestive Support's richness, I bought this in place of it. Unfortunately, this caused my 6-7 year old male sable ferret with insulinoma to lose significant weight and hair after eating it. This could be due to the fact this has almost half amount of protein Digestive Support has (38% to 62%). My younger female sable and middle-aged male albino seemed to do fine with it. Their stools were nicely formed, as well. For the sake of my other ferret, however, I won't be using this any longer.
