Most brands of cat food also have like 3lb bags that are only about $10-$15 or they have sample bags that the stores give away for free. Because hedgehogs eat so little compared to other pets the sample bag could last your hedgehog a week or more. That would enable you to see if your hedgehog will eat it before you actually buy the bag.Shelbys Mom said:If you buy her food from Pet Smart or Petco (some others may do the same I'm not sure) if she doesn't like it you can take it back (with receipt) even if it's opened. I think you have like 30 day's to return it.
I don't count kibble anymore I mass it instead because it is easier and more accurate. Quigley usually eats about 10 grams per night but lately has (last few weeks) has only been eating about 5-7 grams on average. 10 grams are about 20 of his kibbles and 5 is about 10. For the first month we had him he only ate about 3-5 kibbles a night. But every so often he will eat 30 or even 50 kibbles and then go back down the next night.
