Food List - Suggestions & Criticism Welcome

2007 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Sakura
Hi everyone! I'm new around here and my husband and I are looking into a hedgehog as a pet. He's always ogling the hedgies on Cute Overload. Ha ha ha!!! We are not quite ready yet, but I'm getting read up since it seems getting their diet just right is going to be a little harder than it was for all of our other babies. After going over the list on here and browsing PetSmart's website [who are bent on selling junk food], this is what I came up with:

1] Innova Senior Cat Food Dry (Turkey, Chicken & Herring)
Analysis & Ingredients

2] Wellness Indoor Health (Chicken)
Analysis & Ingredients

3] Wysong Anergen Canine/Feline Diet with Lamb & Rice Dry Food (Lamb)
Analysis & Ingredients

4] Royal Canin Adult Fit 32 (Chicken)

5] SophistaCat Blended Mix Recipe Dry Cat Food (Chicken, Pork, Salmon, Tuna, Beef)
Analysis & Ingredients

6] Authority Sensitive Solutions Cat Food (Turkey & Salmon)
Analysis & Ingredients

Thanks in advance to anyone who can give me any advice. I'm really glad someone told me about this place! I started with a high-end food and then went down the list to [hopefully] make it well-blended. Finding anything besides chicken and fish was a nightmare! :lol:

The list looks pretty good. The only one I have a problem with is
SophistaCat... their first few ingredients.... Ground Yellow Corn, Digest of Chicken By-Products, Corn Gluten Meal, Pork and Bone Meal, Poultry By-Product Meal....
Not good to feed, at all.

A suggestion... Natural Balance Green Pea and Duck is a hit favourite with many hedgies. And it also gives a different "meat" in the mix.
