Vale's™ Hedgehog Food

new product

Used at Vale Wildlife Hospital

Our new food is used daily at Vale Wildlife Hospital, one of the UK’s largest rescues. Each year they care for 2,000 hedgehogs, helping them gain weight and health before releasing them back into the wild.

It’s made with plenty of meat and fibre, and selected vitamins and minerals – just what hedgehogs need.

Hedgehogs are natural scavengers that eat almost everything they find. Unlike many kitten foods and other pet foods, Vale’s Hedgehog Food is made with lower protein and fat and higher fibre content. This makes it closer to the varied diet hedgehogs find in the wild.

These are small biscuits, easy to store, with a crunchy texture that helps reduce tartar build-up often seen in hedgehogs. Offer a small handful in a shallow dish with fresh water alongside.

Enjoy the nightly sight of hedgehogs in your garden while giving them a little help on their way.

The natural diet of a hedgehog is mostly bugs, including earthworms, beetles and caterpillars. This makes them mainly insectivores, but scientists are actually unsure about how to officially class these mammals.

There are also several foods that you must never give to hedgehogs, such as milk or cheese (hedgehogs are lactose intolerant), raw meat or eggs, raisins or grapes (these are poisonous to lots of animals) and chocolate or junk food.
