After doing a bunch of research i found that Sunseed Vita Hedgehog Formula is supposedly very healthy for Jeffrey... BUT HE WONT EAT IT! Ive been mixing it with his old food/s and he just dodges the vita part and eats the rest... is there a special technique to get him to eat it? I have 5 canisters of it, i dont particularly want to give up so easily on it.

It's actually not that overly healthy for hedgies. From Reaper's list here: http://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=45 it's #2. It's ok to feed as a "junk" food, just don't rely on it to become his "main" food.

And before you get confused about junk foods....Here is a thread that would be a good read ^_^

What other food are you feeding? You'll most likely find that your boy will only eat the sunseed here and there, but will continue to eat the kibbles that you normally feed him.

The only other way I can think to try to get around that, is to mix the sunseed directly in the storage container of one of his more preferred kibbles, and let the smell of his favourite kibble dilute into the sunseed. (I would only try this in a very small amount basis, because the reverse might also happen, thus making your boy not want the kibble)
Iams isn't all that great either, from what I remember. But someone correct me if I'm wrong... It's getting late here lol

Reaper's list of cat foods here : http://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=15 gives a really good list of cat foods that are good to feed. The most popular brands that most people here feed are Wellness, Chicken Soup for the cat lovers soul, Fromms, Natural Balance Green Pea and Duck, Solid Gold, Blue spa select.

It's recommended to feed at least 3 different good quality cat foods.

Yogurt drops aren't all that great either...http://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2051&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=yogurt+drops

And I've never heard of the booster vitamin that you listed. :lol: *goes and googles*
