Dog wet food? how much do I give?

I have a 2yo Hedgie (Amy) that is currently on kibble. I've been considering switching her to wet food for a while now and have started to look into the good stuff - protein/ fat %, ingredients, quality, etc.
I found a local dog food brand that I feel has good ingredients (below) and the DMB are 34% protein, 9% fat, and 4.6% fiber.

Chicken meat, poultry liver, vegetables (parsley, carrot, spinach, broccoli, green bean, sweet potato), cereals (brown rice), amaranth, yucca extract, vitamins (b1, b2, b6, b12, vitamin a, b3, vitamin e, vitamin k, biotin, niacin, pyridoxine), choline chloride, sodium chloride, calcium carbonate, orthophosphate, minerals (zinc, manganese, iodine, copper, magnesium), prebiotics (lactobacillus acidophilus cell walls).

I was wondering if it looks okay and how much should I give Amy - she's not a picky eater but should I also consider mixing it with another one?
I know the portion it should be for a dog but I don't know how much to give her :LOL:
PS. I also feel it's a bit low on the fiber end and was wondering if I could add some cooked veggies to it.

My Hedgie (Frank) enjoys the occasional baked chicken. try that.
I would really like to switch to wet food, although I'm not sure what would be a good fit. Let me know how it goes!
I just use wet kitten food since I heard hedgehogs can digest those better I recommend beef!
