    Hi, everyone, I just wanted to ask if you all have any recommendations for cat food mix. The main questions I wanted to ask are: 1) How many cat foods do you mix? 2) I'm currently using Nutro Wholesome Essentials and Purina One, but Teemo has started not touching the Purina One. What should I...

    Hello, I was recently looking into the WholeHearted Grain Free Chicken Formula Dry Cat Food. I read on a previous forum that Cat Food should be around 30% Protein and 12% Fat. Well, the Protein percentage is at about 32% and the Fat is at 12% so I figured that looked alright. The Ingredients...

    I recently had to take my 2 y/o hedgie Morrison to the vet because I noticed that he was tilting his head to the right, which I read could be caused by an inner ear infection. My veterinarian checked him out and gave me an oral antibiotic to give him for the next couple weeks for the infection...

    I keep trying my new baby hedgie (6 weeks old) on fruits and veggies and cooked meats (apple, peach, strawberry, cucumber, bell pepper, cooked chicken and hamburger meat etc etc) and she won't eat any of it. She may have taken a bite of the chicken but she wasn't keen on any of it. All she likes...

    So my 4 month old hedgehog Pokey had been eating purina naturals since I got her, which wasn't the best for her (corn meal, etc) so I slowly transitioned her into a mix of chicken soup for the cat lovers soul and solid gold (midnight prowl) which she loved at first. Then I noticed that she had...

    I am a first time hedgehog owner and am very patiently waiting the arrival of my baby who was just born last Thursday. I have been searching this forum for months now and I asked myself a question today that I have yet to read about. Why do people use wet cat food and not wet dog food? I have...

    Hi. I am thinking about getting a hedgehog once I move into my first apartment this summer. I was looking at the recommended food requirements for hedgehogs and noticed everyone seemed to be recommending cat food. I looked at the Petsmart website and noticed dog foods fit the requirements as...

    I just got my Rosie three weeks ago. Her appetite has been hit and miss. We had a little scare where she was constipated and not eating or drinking where we needed to syringe feed her both water and foods such as pumpkin to get things moving. Now, she has recently been introduced to mealworms...

    Right now I'm just feeding my hedgie Purina Pro Plan Savor Adult Chicken & Rice Formula Dry Cat Food. But now I'm reading stuff that says to mix up to three different foods for the right nutrition. I've never been informed of that before, should I be mixing with other cat foods? If so which ones...

    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.

    Hello, I've been doing some research on what foods they can eat and I saw they can have cat food. I was curious if you guys could answer a few questions for me. What brands of cat food are best? How do I get my hedgehog to start eating another food? Thank you!

    What if I were to mix a very small amount of fruits with some water. Could I put it in the food dish for an hour or so and see if she likes it? Is it ok to process their fruit or vegetable treats if they like it?:confused:
