What to Feed Your Fennec

Post by Oakley on Thu Jul 30, 2009 2:18 pm

Diet:
In the wild, Fennecs are mainly carnivores eating a variety of small animals such as insects, eggs, birds, reptiles, and rodents. A large part of their diet is made up of desert plants through which they get their water intake.

In captivity, many owners feed their Fennecs a mixture consisting of dog food, cat food, vegetables, and fruits. Some recommend feeding raw meat, vegetables, and a vitamin mix while others choose to feed a a wild canine diet such as the zoos feed. Insects such as mealworms can also be fed as extra protein but should be considered a meat.

Basically, a well balanced diet would include a high-protien, high quality dog food with the rest of the diet being made up of raw or cooked chicken, boiled or scrambled eggs, and a variety of fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables.

NEVER FEED YOUR FENNEC:
-Pork
-Chocolate
-Grapes
-Raisins
THESE ARE ALL TOXIC!

*even though fennec foxes have the ability to go some time without water, please provide fresh clean water for them at all times.
