I was recommended the Natural balance Green Pea and Duck formula. It has good ingredients, and 30% protein and a 12% fat. I have used it with no problems, should I switch brands? (I also mix this with Blue Buffalo Weight Control cat food)

There's no need to switch if you don't want to & if your hedgehog's doing well. It's not a bad brand.

Will this be ok for now? I also plan on feeding him fresh meat and vegetables. I'm not really familiar enough with UK brands yet but they mostly contain fish and loads of grains. I don't remember seeing the ones listed at Pets at Home but I also want seeking them out.
I'm also in the UK and my breeder gave me a list of cat foods that she buys and then mixes together (which I thought was a good idea so will probably carry on doing) but it meant I had to go on one heck of a mission to find the foods listed haha! Anyways, if you have a Jollyes or a pound stretcher near you they sell a great deal of the brands listed and the prices are really reasonable B&M sell the Go Cat as well (though the smaller store only had the chicken and duck mix -_-)

I just got two hedgehogs, My first hedgie died two years ago, I got her in middle school and was foolish to believe that spikes delight was the "one true answer" to hedgehog food at the time and not till i started research a few days ago realized it's not even that good for hedgehogs. (I am glad i went with the pro-diet for the hedgie and it didn't have most of the bad ingredients the other spikes delight formulas have.)
I use Blue Buffalo Natural Chicken cat food... should I switch to another food? are there any better ones that you could recommend?

Hello! Your timing is excellent! I'm thinking of doing a 2020 foods list for brands available in North America in the very near future, since I have to research for my new baby anyway. Blue Buffalo will be at the top of my inquiry list. I'm interested to see how many recalls they've had in the past few years. When I posted this thread originally, they had several recalls in the uncomfortably recent past, but that was years ago now so they may have cleaned things up.
