Rated 5 out of 5 by brudemi Marshall Premium Ferret Diet - recommended!
I think this food is great. We have had our ferret for a little more than one year now and all he has ever eaten is Marshall Premium Ferret Food. Our vet says he is in great health. He will not even eat treats at this point, he only likes Marshall Premium Ferret Food. As long as he is healthy and happy I will strongly recommend this food. I am thinking that a full year and half or so of having this as sole diet is a pretty good testament to the quality of this food. (my only qualifier for my review is, I don't have anything else to compare against, as our ferret really likes this food and we haven't used others - I am sure there are othe good foods out there, but we will be sticking with Marshall)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ferret Mom Not the best, not the worst
Nutritionally not the best, and it does make them and their poop smell like fish. I wouldn't feed this as a sole food source. My ferrets, all Marshall's ferrets, love this stuff, so I mix it in with other better quality foods. I regularly mix a couple of high quality foods together as recommended by the locsl Ferret Rescue. When one of my little guys got sick with juvenile lymphoma, this was the only thing we could get hime to eat. I guess it was ferret comfort food.

My ferret has eaten this food and only this food since I got him when he was a month old. Slim is beautiful and happy. His physical activity has not changed over the course of his three and a half years. I contemplated foods to choose from even before he was born! This one is the best choice. His diet also includes Marshall's Bandit treats, Ferretone skin & coat supplement, dried and fresh fruits, and skim milk (sparingly.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by layla not the worst, not the best
first of all, my ferrets all love this food. being marshall ferrets, that's to be expected but even after being switched for years they still come running at the smell of this when i get a new fuzzy and buy some for the transition. each food has it's pros and cons. i'll compare the ingredients of this to purina dog chow for dogs. i wouldn't mind putting this into my mix, except it has fish in it, and makes their poop STINK

I have a ferret who is almost 4 years old and we've been given him this food the whole time; however the problem with this food is that it makes your ferret have an upset stomach now and then, they are less active and less playful. Also your ferret poops so much that you don't even want to go near them and there cage ends up stinking like crazy. You're better off going with Evo or Zupreen.

Don't waste your money on this. If you do a little research you can figure out what ferret food needs and what it shouldn't have, after that you should read the ingredients on this food. The company itself is sick, they own a ferret mill and they probably feed their ferrets this. If you want to feed them Marshall's then you should try buying ferretvites then their coat can still be healthy. Just don't buy Marshall's food, it's not good for your fuzzies at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sophie M Not worth it AT ALL!
I bought this at a petsmart knowing the better quality a ferret food, the less doo to clean up. Well this was the price of a very good quality food, without it actually being good quality. The ferrets poo almost more than they eat so I am switching to EVO. Do not waste your MONEY or TIME on food that is awful for the little guys. This was because they had GRAIN in it (corn) CARNIVORES DON'T EAT GRAINS!!!!!

This is the worst food you can give your ferrets! Just look at the ingredients! Only 38% meat! Marshall sells terrible food and treat products for your ferrets. The best food to feed your ferrets is EVO and that is the only food I will ever feed my ferrets. I have 6 fuzzies and their all happy and healthy because of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynn M. Marshall's food
My fuzz butt will be 4 years old shortly and this food is all he has known. When kits, the food should be mixed with water and it does have a less than desirable odor. My experience is once old enough for the food without water, 95% of the odor is gone.

I have 30 ferrets. Rescues will give me the ones that are sickly or have problems. By using Marshalls, grinding it up to make a soup, feeding and maintaining a good diet I've seen miracles happen. Marshall's food is a wonderful way to help keep these special ones healthy. I highly recommend it to anyone who has ferrets or wants to get a ferret.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marcy Very good food
I have 4 ferrets and when I started with just one we got marshall food for him and he loves it and has loved it ever since. My boys are ages 2-4 yrs and they have all been feed this food. Their coats are beautiful and the vet is always happy to see them because they look so healthy. Of course some vets will always tell you that the food you're giving is crap. I work for a vet myself and she always complains about the brand purina and praises science diet because that;s what they sell. And then you go someplace else and they complain that science diet is the worst and so on. However Marshall Ferret diet is great and I have never had a problem with my fuzzies. One of them was given to me and his coat was very dry and rough and now his coat is gorgeous. I also add the ferretone supplement to their food and they go nuts. They also love all of the Marshall treats flavors. And this website has the best price for sure! Do not waste your money at the pet store because it's ridiculous! I love ordering items from this site.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Elizabeth Smells worse than your Ferret
We had a ferret before going to a pet store to purchase a new one. We switched our food to Marshall brand to keep our guarantee and help our new ferret adjust. This food makes our ferret smell like it's cage hasn't been cleaned in weeks. This food is a waste of money because after feeding it to your ferret you can't stand to go near it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pioneer Mom A must buy for multiple ferret homes!!!
We now have three fuzzy babies and I got tired of paying out the nose for the 4 lb bags. We would go throught them in no time. So I purchased this bag and needless to say I just reordered my 2nd bag. It's a wonderful way to buy in bulk. Love the prices here on ferret.com too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ciara worst thing you could feed your fuzzy
When I bought my first ferret, I asked the pet store what brand of food they use and they said Marshalls. So I bought a big bag, thinking that what the pet store feeds their ferrets had to be the best.. WRONG! Now of course my ferret liked it because that's what he was use to.. but little did I know that when I would take my ferret to his vet, I would get lectured about just how terrible this food is for my poor ferret. Glad I know, not only do they use the "ends and pieces"- (pretty much the gross leftover pieces of meat that could not be used for human consumption and should have been thrown), but they also use this food for animal testing. That's right, animals that are being tested in labs get fed this disgusting food. It also was shown to cause cancer in ferrets.
I asked my vet what the best dry food is and he said Evo. I switched my ferrets food and he is healthy and happy and loves it.
