Ferrets are a popular pet among many consumers, which translates to good business for retailers to have them in their stores. And considering how these critters are in demand, which makes them “good for business,” it’s only fitting that a group of ferrets is called a business. But there is a lot to know about these small, sociable pets.

For example, according to the American Ferret Association, ferrets require diets based on highly digestible animal (meat) protein with little to no carbohydrates. That means dry food options should have at least 36 percent protein and be moderate in fats (approximately 20 percent) and low in carbohydrates.

Additionally, ferrets sleep an average of 18 hours per day, but will adjust their schedule to their owners. And a ferret’s environment should include plenty of soft bedding and safe toys, with the temperature kept in their comfort range of between 50 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

This is just some of the information consumers need to know when it comes to the care of their ferret. Knowing this and more about ferrets will help you stand out from your competition to your ferret-owning clientele. They will be coming back to you on both your knowledge and the products you have to offer. Of course, that means the products you have in your store should be as expansive and diverse as your knowledge. Have products like these that address a ferret’s nutrition, play, sleep and more. Not only will they keep ferrets happy and healthy, but safe as well.
