Our Hedgie Herd Diet- Updated

We have been working on transitioning our hedgehogs to a more natural diet. We are now limiting processed cat food in our kibble mix.


Hedgehog Precision is our hedgehogs main diet. They are currently free fed the Standard Formula. Our pregnant and nursing mothers are given High Calorie when its available for purchase. I cant say enough good things about this food. The kibble size is designed for hedgehogs, the main ingredient is Black Solider Fly larvae, and the customer service is impeccable.


Next is a list of cat foods we recommend:


Please avoid:

Science Diet

Friskies

Fancy Feast

Meowmix

or any other low quality cat foods


Bugs

Mealworms

Superworms

Dubia Roaches

Madagascar Hissing Roaches

Hornworms

Crickets


Due to the fact that Long Eared Hedgehogs require a more extensive diet we have incorporated it into our African Pygmy Hedgehog and Lesser Tenrec feeding program.

Our mash ingredients do vary with each batch. Some ingredients may also be hard to find depending on your area.
