I got this stuff free at work and was wondering if it is appropriate to give to a hedgehog as a treat.

It is a commercial dog treat. It is soft and here are the specifics.

Ingredients: Turkey, Soy Flour, Maple Syrup, Rice Flour, Glycerine Dextrose, Potato Flour, Salt, Cultured Whey, Molasses Natural Smoke Flavour, Garlic Powder, Citric Acid, Mixed Tocophorals, Rosemary

Guaranteed Analysis:
Protein: 27%
Fat: 8%
Fiber: 3%
Moisture: 25%

I thought it might be ok because the main ingredient is turkey and it's not high in fat. My concerns are the maple syrup, rice flour, and the citric acid.

Does anyone have an opinion on this or see any other red flag ingredients?

Thank you both for the input. I will give them to my brother for his dog instead. I forgot that garlic was bad for hedgehog's and was not sure about the other ingredients I mentioned.

Mallasfamily, the only reason I even considered it was because he will not eat baby food and we don't often have meat ourselves so there is limited opportunity to give it to Quigley.
