As far as wet foods go, it's not fantastic. Goes right along with Purina's usual quality, unfortunately. Poultry by-products aren't a good ingredient, especially as the main ingredient, and menadione sodium bisulfate complex is also a concerning ingredient. You can read more about both & why they're not great to have in a food here - http://www.hedgehogcentral.com/foru...3034-beginner-s-guide-hedgehog-nutrition.html

Personally, I wouldn't want to feed it to either animal. But it's up to you & what you're comfortable with. If you want to feed it, I would go with no more than a few times a week, maybe 1-2 teaspoons. The fat isn't too bad (18% DMB), and the protein is high, but also not bad for a wet food (43% DMB). Just keep an eye on her weight & cut down if it seems like she's gaining too much from it.
