EVO is better with ingredients than most brands of biscuits, but unfortunately still has the same problems that all processed foods (biscuits/canned) share.
- inappropriate ingredients: carbohydrates, sugars, plant based ingredients, preservatives, colourants, etc (less in EVO than other brands but many of them are still there)
- wrong form/texture: ground up, cooked & dried out. Ferret's digestive systems are designed for fresh whole food.
- lack of teeth/gum cleaning: same problem that all biscuits, canned, mince & small pieces of meat share. Lack of daily teeth & gum cleaning leads to dental disease

The claims they make about being equivalent to a "raw diet" (whatever that means? raw carrots?) are advertising hype and mean nothing.
The company has put a little effort into reducing the harmful ingredients and including healthy ones, but still falls short of what ferrets need.
