This is a food chart I've compiled from various sources. Some of them I've read the labels on, some information I've found on homepages of the manufacturers, and some on various other food charts. Yes, there are other food charts on the 'net, but I wanted to compile information about as many food brands as possible, and variations of the same brand, like Adult or Kit. If you have any additional information on anything you see that's missing or is incorrect, please e-mail me at ferretmagic@hotmail.com
Thank you.
