well i have been feeding theo authority chicken and rice for the past ehh... 4 months or so, and i have been looking at the ingredients and nutritional facts, but im just a little... befuddled. can anyone tell me if this is good enough for my little theo? hes pretty slender. heres the stuff:

chicken, chicken meal, brewers rice, corn gluten meal, ground corn, beet pulp, natural flavor, dried egg product, dried cellulose, canola oil, animal fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), frucooligosaccharides, (wow, was that hard to type!), corn oil, potassium chloride, vitamins (vitamin e supplement, l-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate, niacin, vitamin a supplement, thiamin mononitrate, d-calcium pantothenate, vitamin d3 supplement, riboflavin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, folic acid, biotin, vitamin b12 supplement, choline chloride, dicalcium phosphate, minerals (zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, copper sulfate, manganese sulfate, calcium iodate, sodium selenite), taurine, mixed tocopherols.

crude protein not less than 34%
crude fat not less than 12%
crude fat not more than 15%
crude fiber not more than 7%

that was all the ingredients, but if someone needs all the nutritional facts, i will be happy to give them. also, i have been wanting to create a mix, and im curious as to what specific food i should add. thanks!!

I'm pretty sure Authority is on the cat food list(if memory serves), as it does look ok.

So your hedgie is more of a "runner type"?
There are some here who have tried Halo Spots Stew, which is 16% fat, for their runner type hedgies to try to keep weight on. If you think Theo needs something higher in fat, but not too much, that's something to look into, as I'm pretty sure the next lvl up is 18% Wellness(normal).

For myself, I like giving my boy a variety. So I feed him Wellness healthy weight(chicken), Natural Balance Green pea and duck(duck), and Solid Gold(lamb). It's really up to you what you want to feed, and what's readily available in your area. There are many foods off the Cat food list that is good to feed.
