    Hey there, I'm new here and a new hedgie mom. I got little one on Saturday (no name yet!) and she did not eat Saturday night or Sunday night. She did eat about 5 kibble last night (Monday). She did drink some last night and Sunday night. I plan to begin syringe feeding her baby food today...

    I was at the per store today and saw a brand I have never noticed before. It's called Nutram, and either I'm blind or it's relatively new. It' pretty hard to find good foods where I live unless you order online, so if it's decent then it's actually quite exciting. It's made in Canada and...

    I am a new hedgie owner, and have learned a lot so far!! I have created Angus's mix, he has 3 different kibbles and he LOVES meal worms. I want to keep track of how much he is eating, how much kibble should he be eating each night? Like, how many pieces? He had some great poops last night, but...

    This looks pretty good to me, my hedgie needs some extra fat. It does have menadione sodium bisulfate, which is mentioned as something to avoid. Is that a big concern...

    Okay, all the percentages and all the info out there is just overwhelming, much less going down the cat food aisle. Rosie is currently on IAMS Adult with Chicken, but I know there's probably better. Here are the foods I have access to, from the store I'll be working at soon: Blue Buffalo...

    My hedgie is currently on IAMS, left form her previous owners. I want to slowly start getting her on better food, preferably a mix. My mom bought a bag of Pure Balance from Wal-Mart for our cats, and it sounds good to me. Would really love someone more experienced to give some input.

    Hi everyone! I recently got a new hedgehog from Janda Exotics, a breeder about an hour away from where I live. I know reviews about her are mixed, but I'm really pleased with my new little baby! She gave me a *tiny* (like maybe 5 tablespoons) sample of her mix, Pokey Crunch, but I'm switching...

    I've currently got my 4.5 month old girl on a good cat kibble called Nature's Variety: Instinct, and she's currently on the chicken kibble. After time, I'd like to switch her to the turkey kibble to keep it interesting, but they also have lamb and rabbit varieties. The protein percentages are...

    I've read around a little bit and I am still unsure of starches for hedgehog kibble. I know that sweet potatoes are acceptable in food and treats but are regular potatoes good? I know grain-free foods are the best but in these foods most of the time they substitute the grains for potatoes or...

    Hello, I made a post before regarding the food my hedgehog has been on (Royal Canin medi cal calorie control) and I'm concerned about it yet again. It was recommended by a vet (who I also had a problem with), because my hedgie was getting really soft stools on her other wellness brand food. Her...

    I had read somewhere that carrots can be too hard for a hedgehog, so to use the shredded ones or at least cut them up. My question is if carrots are too hard for them, couldn't the cat food that they eat be too hard for them too? When mine eats, every time she bites down, it causes her quills...

    I am reevaluating my kibble mix (again) and I'm curious what other people are using these days. I've got Penny on Solid Gold Katz n Flocken and Chicken Soup Adult Lite. I've got Milton on Solid Gold and Wellness CORE, he's a runner and I struggle to keep weight on him. What are other people...
