About

Details

Hedgehog Food Original was initially developed for rescue centres and wildlife hospitals but we`re delighted to also make it available for feeding wild hedgehogs in the garden. Hedgehog Food Original is a complete, nutritionally balanced, 100% natural Hedgehog Food which actively promotes animal health and vitality.

The natural ingredients are boosted with the addition of essential vitamins and minerals and it is completely free from artificial colourings, flavourings and preservatives. The size and shape of the crunchy biscuit is designed to assist with dental hygiene, whilst still being highly palatable to hedgehogs of all ages.

Young or infirm hedgehogs may benefit by soaking the Hedgehog Food in warm water for a few minutes before serving. Approximately a handful of food per visiting hedgehog per night will be sufficient.

Hedgehogs are regular foragers, they tend to come and feed for 5-10 minutes, then wander off, possibly visiting the feeding station 2-3 times a night. Their ‘little and often’ approach means that if one source of food dries up, they will already be aware of several sites to visit.

In recent years more incidences of Metabolic Bone Disease are being reported. A naturally balanced diet is required to avoid this syndrome and you can read more about the condition and how to prevent it in our blog article MBD. Ark Hedgehog Food Original has been specifically formulated for hedgehogs and will help fight against such conditions and boost their overall health.

Vale Wildlife Hospital the UK`s largest hedgehog rescue centre have written a helpful guide on feeding hedgehogs in the garden.

Q: My hedgehogs prefer wet food?

A: Buying wet food is expensive because you're paying for the water. Our dry formula can be easily rehydrated by adding a little warm water. This will make it easier for young and fussy hedgehogs to consume. Please note, it is still worth tempting them with some biscuits because this is good for their teeth.

Q: How much food should I give my visiting hedgehogs?

A: About a handful of food per hedgehog per night will be fine. Hedgehogs are regular foragers, they tend to come and feed for 5-10 minutes, then wander off, possibly visiting the feeding station 2-3 times a night. Their ‘little and often’ approach means that if one source of food dries up, they will already be aware of several sites to visit.

Q: What else can I feed hedgehogs?

A: You can find a full rundown of what is suitable to feed hedgehogs in our Blog page.
