My hedgehog, Finnegan, is a very round little fellow and needs to lose a bit of weight. However, I've been finding a lot of conflicting information. Some sites say to switch to diet food and only give a certain amount while others say to switch to diet food alone and continue filling up the food bowl. What do you guys do for obese hedgies?

I would also try switching to a lower fat food, and still give him the same amount. If you can find the same brand but lower fat version that would be great if he is picky.

Usually hedgies become overweight from having too much fat in their diet, or lack of exercise. In order to lose that weight you just need to do the opposite, lower the fat or increase exercise.
