    Awesome! Thanks so much for the info! I'm excited to start trying it. The probiotic power is a really good idea. Thanks again!

    I feed the bites...they look like kibble and thaw really quickly since they aren't very big. I put them in frozen usually. I feed 6% of her body weight. Currently she is 283 grams, so that figures out to nearly 17 grams, but of that I try to feed about 7 grams of raw organic ground turkey from Whole Foods, because the bone and organ ratio of the Instinct bites is a bit high. Also I sprinkle just a tiny bit of probiotic powder on her turkey, and feed her 4-5 worms a day. During the evening I leave her a little buffet of chopped fruits and vegetables but she doesn't eat much of that (the Instinct has some fruits and vegetebles in it). I tried to fed her raw chicken necks, a raw wing drumette, and a raw feeder fish but she's having none of that, so I consider myself fortunate that she eats what she does, and gets excited about it. Oh, one more thing...a couple of drops of olive oil on her food every day. Good luck with the switch, and let me know if I can answer any more questions.

    Hello! I just had a quick question regarding the diet that you have your hedgie on - I'm thinking about doing the same thing! I love the idea of the Nature's Instict bites, and luckily they're available at the Petco near me. I was wondering - how do you store it and feed it? Do you have to thaw it before each meal? Also, how much do you feed her (do they come in like patties or little bite sized pieces, like kibble)? Thanks so much!
