Is this OK to feed? Herisson currently eats Wellness Indoor and the NB Green Pea & Duck kibbles. I gave him a baby spoonful last night and he loves it. If wet food is OK, what ratios of fat, protein and so on do I look for?

Crude Protein 9.0% minimum, Crude Fat 5.0% minimum, Crude Fiber 1.0% maximum, Moisture 78% maximum, Taurine 0.05% minimum, Magnesium 0.025% maximum.

Thanks!

Canned cat food is a great treat or supplement. Because most of it is water, I don't really look at the analysis- just the ingredients. As long as there aren't anything nasty on the list it's fine. :)

Inky especially likes the NB and Wellness Kitten canned foods.

I posted a similar question a while ago. I remember someone commenting though that while a good treat, canned (ie. wet) food can be hard on the digestion. It was recommended to feed it as a treat, or main food only if the hedgie can't eat hard foods.

I'd quote the post but can't seem to find it...

It's just for a snack. He loves his kibble. :)

Thank you!
