Default feeding wellness duck and turkey mix SMELLY POOP

Dax's poo smell is almost unbearable, there is no fish I am feeding him the core wellness duck and turkey meal, but his poo is so stinky, is it too much protein, could it be the little bit of tomato paste they mix in it? is this a bad food? he loves it but the smell makes me ill....

Wellness is a fantastic food, but unfortunately it sometimes causes this for some hedgies. So far the only theory I know for why is that it's so good that it's too rich for their digestive systems. I would suggest mixing another good quality brand of food in with the Wellness. Some hedgies do okay with a little Wellness, as long as it's not the only food they get. Some can't have any Wellness at all. If you can find another food he enjoys too, & start mixing it in, you can see if the poop stops at some point as you mix it in, or if he continues to have stinky poops, just replace the Wellness with the new food.
