I started with the wellness grain free food 3 years ago mostly because of the size of the kibble being kind of small, so I didn't have to worry too much about choking. My hedgies poops have been the most rancid smelling thing I have ever smelled. You could smell them from the floor below me walking past the stairs. I switched to Beyond Simply Grain Free. I cant even smell their poop in the same room unless I'm on top of their cage. My problem is that one of my hedgies is a Creature who eats fast and doesn't chew well. There are large heart shaped pieced of kibble that she seems to be having trouble with. She isn't choking because she still can hiss at me when I pick her up to prepare to help. I think they just get lodged on the roof of her mouth since she makes exaggerated tounge movements with clicking noises. Still is mildly terrifying. Does anyone know of a kibble that is smaller and won't make their poops smell like before? I have been cutting her portions up which stops the problem. Is the kitten formula size smaller? I'll keep cutting up the kibble for the rest of their lives as long as that smell stays gone. The 8mage is the one that I have recently changed them to.
