Our Comments:

high in fiber

Categories this ingredient falls under:

Fiber: This is a source of fiber, which produces firmer stools but has no other use for ferrets. Excessive fiber may be harmful.
Vegetable: This is not a natural part of a ferret's diet, and may not be not well digested. A small amount of vegetables is typically needed to bind meat together in kibble, and vegetables are sometimes used to provide needed vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately, vegetables are often added in larger amounts as 'filler' to reduce the ingredients cost for the manufacturer, so watch out for how high up on the ingredients list they appear.
