Are yogurt drops ok for a hedgie? There is no real dairy in them. There really isn't much good stuff in them either.They are meant for guinea pigs and hamsters

they contain:
sugar
Calcium casinate
soybean oil
Yogurt powder
vanilla

I don't trust those things as it is...Even with hamsters >.<

Just too much coincidence that when I had a hamster back in my younger years, I bought those yogurt drops, fed some, and my hamster died a few days later...

Refused to buy then since. It probably had nothing to do with the drops, but I was young and never forgave the drops. :roll:

I think you'd be better off with real yogurt. At least it's human grade, and small amounts are ok.

I found it on Photobucket and thought it was absolutely adorable so I saved it, I thought this was a good time to put it to use. I am not sure of the artist but I would love to find out. Coraline is sleeping on my chest while I am typing hehe. xD

Why not use PM for personal comments back and forth instead of hijacking someones post. I apologize for this.

I give yogurt drops to my gerbils *once in a while* as an occasional "cookie", but not often. I don't normally buy a lot of those packaged treats from pet shops because a)they are full of sugar b)they are full of preservatives and junk c)they are EXPENSIVE! Especially when you can buy a pound of *natural* treats (dried fruits and nuts) from the co-op for the same price as an ounce of the pet shop treats :D
The only treats I give my hedgie are natural, soft cat treats, mealies, and fresh fruit and vegetables - mostly because I have not learned about a lot of safe treats yet :)

I'm not saying yogurt drops would be appropriate for hedgehogs but they aren't 100% bad for all small animals. Over 10 years ago my family kept mice &, even though we fed them well (feed & fresh veggies), something was deficient because they didn't seem to be having any babies (we think they were possibly eating them :shock:) - we started to give them vitamin yogurt drops & the babies started coming again & the mice seemed much healthier.
