  • & a local hedgehog kibble recommended by my vet called "Exotic's Hedgehog's Diet Premium" (28% protein, 9% fats, 5% fiber; Powdered cricket, marine origin flour, chicken flour, soybean meal, wheat and wheat products, fish stabilized oil, soy lecithin, vitamins extruded shrimps, choline chloride, special minerals, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), phospates, carbonate, antifungal, antioxidant, omega 3 and vitamin E.)
However, as the Merrick is approaching it's expiration date (and I also read since it was bought by Purina it may not have quality ingredients) I thought it would be a good a idea to re-evaluate her food mix. I was thinking of doing a mix between
  • CANIDAE PURE Grain Free Limited Ingredient Real Bison, Lentil & Carrot Recipe ( Crude Protein (min.) 25.00%; Crude Fat (min.) 14.50%; Crude Fiber (max.) 4.00% ; Bison, lamb meal, sweet potatoes, peas, lentils, carrots, pork meal, tapioca, canola oil, suncured alfalfa meal, natural flavor, taurine, minerals (iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper proteinate, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, potassium iodide, manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite), vitamins (vitamin E supplement, thiamine mononitrate, ascorbic acid, vitamin A supplement, biotin, niacin, calcium pantothenate, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin B12 supplement, riboflavin, vitamin D3 supplement, folic acid), choline chloride, mixed tocopherols (a preservative), dried enterococcus faecium fermentation product, dried lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, dried lactobacillus casei fermentation product, dried lactobacillus plantarum fermentation product, dried trichoderma longibrachiatum fermentation extract.)
  • Instinct Original Grain-Free Recipe with Real Chicken Freeze-Dried (Crude Protein (min): 41.0%, Crude Fat (min): 21.0%, Crude Fiber (max): 3.0% ; Chicken, Chicken Meal, Turkey Meal, Menhaden Fish Meal, Peas, Chicken Fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols and Citric Acid), Tapioca, Natural Flavor, Dried Tomato Pomace, Montmorillonite Clay, Carrots, Apples, Cranberries, Choline Chloride, Salt, Vitamins (Vitamin E Supplement, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate, Niacin Supplement, Vitamin A Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Folic Acid, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Biotin), Minerals (Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Ethylenediamine Dihydriodide), Taurine, Freeze Dried Chicken, Freeze Dried Chicken Liver, Pumpkinseeds, Freeze Dried Chicken Heart, Dried Bacillus coagulans Fermentation Product, Rosemary Extract.)
& keep the Tiër Holistic and Exotic's.

What do you guys think? Would it be a good mix considering the percentages of protein and the ingredients?

Thank you in advance!
PS: I also feed her superworms, mealworms, and sometimes dubia roaches.
