Additional Information

Marshall Farms is the largest commercial ferret breeder in the United States. Their ferret kits make up an overwhelming majority of ferrets that are sold in North American pet shops. In order for their one year guarantee against congenital health defects in to remain valid, they require that the purchased ferret be only on this diet for this time span.

Some ferret owners choose to boycott Marshall products due to ethical concerns: breeding practices, housing, early neutering, and early shipping being common ones.
