Feeding Instructions

Feed to hedgehogs at a rate of at least 50% of their daily dry matter intake. Feed intake will vary based on animal body size and life stage, level of activity and environmental temperature. Supplemental food items, including insects, vegetables and fruit, can be fed at 25% or less of the total diet. If feeding live insects to the animal, ensure the insects are gut-loaded prior to feeding out. We recommend gut-loading with: Mazuri Better Bug Gut-Loading Diet Always feed along with fresh, clean water. Storage Conditions: For best results, after removal of desired dosage ensure polybag seal is fully closed, tightly affix lidon canister or store contents of open bag in container with sealing lid. Store in a cool (75oF orcolder), dry (approximately 50% RH) location. Adhere to the Best if used by date or use within 1 year of printed lot code.

Transition Instructions

Initially, soaking the extruded Mazuri Hedgehog Diet in water (2 parts water:1 part dry diet) may help to transition animals that are used to soft/moist diets. After 1-2 weeks on soaked diet, move to 1 part water: 1 part dry diet, and 1-2 weeks later, offer dry diet. If moistened, replace diet twice a day.
