Some freeze dried raw ferret diets (Wysong, Stella and Chewy's) have probiotics in their ingredients. Comparing those to dairy products or supplements, is there a "best" option or are the results similar enough?

Buy some fortiflora (cat version has added taurine, but as long as your pet is on a balanced diet, the dog version is just fine - they are otherwise the same product) and add about 1/4 a packet to your ferret's soupie mix. I had to do this for a few weeks after the pharmacist switched pred on me to one with sorbitol in it and my boy's guts were a mess.
It is about $20 for a box I believe. Most probiotics are not regulated (as they are supplements), and studies have shown that the Purina Fortiflora is the only current brand on the market that actually has the strain and the concentration advertised on the box.
