We feed insects to reptiles and wouldn�t think about giving them peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Why on earth would we feed an exotic mammal, especially a skunk dog food or cat food? I feel there are quite a few mammals that would benefit from this fresh protein diet, specifically skunks. That is their primary diet in nature along with fresh plant matter.
Face it, pet skunks have some serious physical issues. Why is that? I am pretty sure I know the majority of the problem. What are some of the problems you have noticed in your pet skunks? How many of you are still feeding, cottage cheese, canned veggies, chicken, dog food, or even vanilla waffers? How many of you lost your skunks or they had serious problems?
