With some pets its simple – they just consume one point (serpents consume just computer mice/ rats – other than the harsh eco-friendlies that consume bugs!). With various other pets it can be a good deal harder!

Hedgehogs will certainly consume practically anything or two we are informed. There is a great deal of recommendations from various other hedgehog caretakers on what to feed your hedgie. They will certainly consume feline food, tuna, completely dry feline food, clambered eggs, diced unseasoned meat, strawberries, kiwi fruit, apple, banana, yam, carrots, sweetcorn, mushroom – they are omnivorous. As treats you can offer dish worms, morio worms, pinkies (infant computer mouse) – yet these teem with fat so ought to just be provided periodically or you will certainly wind up with an overweight hedgie:-RRB-

Pink (our albino African pygmy hedgehog) is not a follower of plants or veggies! She enjoys her meat – damp and also completely dry feline food, fish, poultry, beef, pinkies, worms, pork – she also suches as pasta!!! Vegetables, she is a bit extra discerning with – all veggies require to be prepared, as hedgies can choke on the fibrous little bits in them. She will certainly consume prepared cauli and also broccoli, the within pleasant corn (she leaves the skins), some leafed eco-friendlies (not iceberg lettuce!) potato (prepared). She does not such as salad things (like tomatoes, cucumber, radish etc). She enjoys clambered eggs and also kiwi fruit, yet you quickly uncover when foods do not like your hedgie! Yuk! Scrambled eggs and also kiwi provided her an unpleasant tummy! As a reward she will certainly obtain a scattering of dish worms or 1 or 2 morios or a pinkie, or an extremely unique fallen apart sponge cake:-RRB- You REQUIREMENT NOT feed your hedgehog milk or cheese – hedgies are lactose intolerant and also these foods can make them EXTREMELY ill.
