Do You Buy Puppy/kitten Food to Feed Hedgehogs in Your Garden?
Ask a Question
I buy little 35p tins of puppy food from Asda to feed the hedgehog who visits our garden most nights. Since joining LD I now get a lot of free samples from the mountain of pet food offers on here, obviously check the contents and google any queries before you put food out. I've done my research and this plus any crumbled dog/cat, dry biscuit foods are suitable, in a small crushed portion (egg cup full) as a supplement to the hedgehogs diet. They especially benefit at this time of year whilst they're busy building fat reserves for hibernation. Be careful not to overfeed them though as this isn't healthy and can be a great hinderance to them. Always wash the feeding bowl and your hands thoroughly as hedgehogs can carry diseases. Don't let that put you off though, watching our one, we call him/her 'pog', is something I very much look forward to in the evening. If you make a hole in the fencing around your garden, and if necessary get your neighbours to join in, you'd be suprised how quickly they arrive, to tempt them in spoil thema little, put a few dried mealworms out they can smell them from a street away! get loads of facts here if you want. hedgehogstreet.org
