Opossum Complete Opossum Food

$14.95 $13.95

With the guidance and advice of a PhD in animal nutrition, Opossum Complete has been formulated to provide a healthy chicken and insect-based protein source for your opossum. The high ratio of calcium in the insects (BSFL) helps to prevent calcium deficiencies. Dried natural apple, blueberries, cranberries, and papaya are added as fruit sources. See below for full product ingredients and analysis.

  • Blended with essential vitamins and minerals into an easy-to-feed complete diet
  • Wholesome natural ingredients including whole insects and dried fruits
  • Contains the recommended nutrition necessary for proper growth and development of pet opossums
  • Balanced Ca:P ratio (2:1) to help prevent Metabolic Bone Disease (MBD)
Feeding Recommendation: Offer Opossum Complete daily as a staple diet to weaned opossum eating solid food (3 to 5 months or older).

Opossums are one of the world's most variably sized mammals, therefore feeding recommendations vary. It's important to know that opossums have a large appetite and a slow metabolism. We recommend offering Opossum Complete daily as a staple diet. Supplement the diet with small amounts of high-calcium vegetables (leafy greens, squash, sweet potato) and occasional protein sources such as insects, fish (with bones), eggs (with shell), or chicken. Always provide clean, fresh drinking water.

I think I’m on my 5th 15lb bag of this food. My three possums love it. I’ve been giving it to them since they were tiny babies. They are now full grown and thriving. I love that there’s an easy food I can give them to meet their high calcium nutrition needs since dog and cat foods are protein based and offer little to no nutritional value for possums. I recommend giving it to them as a daily staple at every meal and then offer a differing variety of fruits, vegetables, eggs or meat on the side with it. Your possums will love it and they’ll be getting the unique calcium rich nutrients they need to grow big and strong and avoid ailments like MBD. To me, the price is a little steep but the company that makes it offers free shipping, frequent discount codes and it’s worth it to know that all my possum’s needs are met in a food they clearly love. I recommend this to all possum owners. -Caroline G.
