Default What Cat Food Would You Recommend?

Hey everyone,

I’m interested in buying cat food for my hedgehog.

He’s currently eating hedgehog food that was recommended to me from the exotic store I got him from, but I’m learning that hedgehog food usually isn’t the best option.

I want to switch him to cat food because that is what seems to be the better option and I want my hedgehog to live the best life possible. I’m not really good with picking out the foods though, and I’d like to know what foods you guys feed your hedgehogs. Thanks for any input in advance!

Hey there! Rather than recommending specific brands, as they change a lot based on location, you should look at the ingredients and analysis of different foods in your local store. Look for kibbles that have real meat ingredients as the first 3-5 listed ingredients, and not too many starchy ingredients. Hedgehogs do best when given a diet of 30-35% protein, no more than 20% fat, and added fiber. You can find that break down generally in a table next to the ingredient list!
Hope this helps 🙂

Hi I have been using GoCat indoor dry cat food. Is that suitable for Pygmy hedgehogs?

Do you have or can you take a picture of the bag? Preferably the back of the bag so we can see the ingredients and guaranteed analysis!
