My sisters hedgehog, Xena is having a hard time eating hard food. She hasn't aten it for about a day now. We tryed to wet the hard food to get it softer but she still refused to eat. My sister fed her a peice of Stubbie's(her cat) food and she ate it. So my mom went shopping and picked up some wet food. It is called Nutro Max Cat Gourmet Classics Lite. It is turkey and chicken flavor. Can we mix some of it in her food? We are planning on softening her hard food a bit and adding some of the wet food in. Is that ok?

Thanks.

Be prepared for alot of really stinky poo. You may also want to supplement with some hills a/d since that is way low on fat and protein.
