Ferret food is made for animals with short digestive tracks that need to absorb as much nutrition as possible in the short time it is in them. It is typically very high in protein and fat so not suitable for hedgehogs. Marshalls makes ferrets poop stink like crazy and I'd hate to think what a hedgehog would smell like on it. :lol: Many years ago we took in a couple of rescue ferrets that came with Marshalls food. That lasted about 3 days as the smell of them on it was horrible.
