Default cricket-based dog food

https://jiminys.com/product/cricket-...ize=3.5+lb+bag
So I just found out this exists, and I feel like it might be worth adding to a mix of different dry foods I crush in the food processor and blend together. The main ingredients look good, I just see a lot of minerals added and I'm not sure how, if at all, that would affect the value for non-dogs. Does anyone have any advice?

Looks like a pretty typical mid-range dog food to me, they've just swapped any meat ingredients for crickets. None of the additives are known to be harmful to hedgehogs, but it's unknown if they would be beneficial either. In a mix it would be fine, and I'd be interested to know if your hog shows any preference towards it since it's insect-based.

Well, unfortunately I just bought multiple bags of food here... most of which have disappointing ingredients but that's what the breeder was feeding and I need to slowly cut them out. It might be a while before I need more food. ><

Aww darn. Take your time with the transition, there's no need to rush it.
