Good nutrition is very important in captivity, especially in an animal species where little research has been done into their nutritional needs. It is therefore quite difficult to know what a good kibble should meet. The most important thing is that it contains about 28-35% protein and 12-15% fat, and that the kibble is of good quality and preferably with a lot of meat! By looking at the first three ingredients on the packaging, you can properly estimate whether a kibble contains a lot or little meat. If the first three ingredients are not plant nutrients, they have a lot of meat in them. Preferably do not go for chunks that contain a lot of corn or grains. And for hedgehogs it is important not to take a kibble made on the basis of fish. Not so much because it is not healthy for them, but many types of fish are greasy and the stools smell bad. A kibble made from poultry is best suited to a hedgehog.
