Default Young Hedgehog Diet

Hi everyone,

My hedgie is around 5 months old and I am currently feeding her Purina One Kitten dry food. She was raised on this food when I bought her from the breeder and she loves it but I have been noticing that she is starting to get a little overweight and is having trouble balling up. I do give her around 60 kibble pieces a day and she usually eats most of them. I was wondering if there is a better food to feed her (that can be found at big box stores) or if I should just cut down on how much I give her. This is my first time owning a hedgie so I'm not sure on how much I should be feeding her or what's the best options out there.

I'm also currently not giving her any treats outside of the kibble so I was wondering if you guys could suggest some good treat options (preferably not live insects since that's not an option).

Thanks!
