I've seen others mention feeding them, so I would guess they're safe.

I wouldn't give herbs - some of them have medicinal properties that could be overdosed. At any rate, they have pretty strong scents most of the time, which could be a bit shocking for a sensitive hedgie nose.

Not a suggestion I've seen before! But looking at the ingredients, nothing's jumping out at me as anything bad...the worst thing would be sugar being the fourth ingredient, but still better than a lot of dog/cat treats. Could always give them a try and see.

Once the same happened with me .I also had to share a little part of popcorn with my cute hedgehog Binny .But i was not sure at that time about whether i have to share it with my Binny or not.But now i will remain careful because i dont wana take risk for Binny's health.
Thanks dear!

I've seen that beef is not suggested for hedgehogs. I wasn't sure why, but I figured better safe than sorry. It's included in that list, though, so I was just wondering what people's experience with it said.

Default Ultra Bites 8 in 1 for hedgehogs

I recently found 8 in 1 Ultra Bites for Hedgehogs Fruit and Veggie Treat.

From reading this, is this a safe choice? Im a little confused about what I can and cannot feed him as Ive read elsewhere that this isnt safe and then it is ok.

No, they're not good. My mom tried to get them for Lily once. They have seeds and raisins in them, both dangerous for hedgehogs, and there's not really anything good in them. You'd be better off trying something from the list of safe treats here.

This may be a stupid question, but do crunchy vegetable such as asparagus need to be cooked?

If you don't cook it, I would definitely cut them in the kibble sized pieces to avoid choking. But a good steam wouldn't hurt. Just make sure that it is not hot when offered to the hedgehog.
