Hills makes two lines of food, their veterinary line called Hills Prescription Diet that can only be bought at vet clinics or in the vet area at pet stores, and their crap line called Hills Science Diet. Science Diet IS a crap food as it contains by products and corn.SnufflePuff said:Just wanted to point out that Hill's Science Diet is actually one of the best pet foods (for cats and dogs) on the market (besides veterinary brand food only sold in clinics) and is absolutely not sold in grocery stores. In fact Science diet's manufacturer Hill's is who makes the much-used A/D cat food that we often syringe to our hedgie friends when needed.hedgielover said:The thing with those bad foods is that an animal may seem fine on the food for ears and then develop kidney problems and die. It's better to do everything so the animal thrives instead of just seems fine.
A good rule of thumb when buying foods is stay away from any brand you can buy in the grocery store or wal-mart etc. Iams, Whiskas, Science Diet, Eukanuba etc. They are all bad and even if they have natural varieties that look better they usually are not better by much.
As for the original post - those foods are not the best. I would recommend Royal Canin. Use the Baby Cat formula for hedgehogs under 4 months, and the indoor 27 adult fomula for adults over 4 months. When you look at the nutritional content you want a food with 30% protein (37 is a bit too high) and 15% or less fat. Avoid any food with animal by-products, corn, corn meal, or corn gluten in the first 5 ingredients. Meat meals are good, don't confuse them with by-product meals.
