Feeding Guidelines

Each day offer a handful of Brambles food per hedgehog in a shallow dish. You can supplement your pet hedgehog's diet with insects, boiled eggs, fruit and vegetables. Their favourite insects are mealworms and crickets. They can also eat beetles, waxworms, millipedes, grasshoppers, hornworms and maggots.

Mealworms and crickets have an extremely poor calcium/phosphorous ratio which can cause life threatening problems such as Metabolic Bone Disease if eaten as staple diet. It is recommended to dust mealworms and other feeder insects with calcium and vitamin D3 powder before giving them to your hedgehog. Remember that insects are hedgies' junk food, so they good as treats, but should'nt make most of their diet in captivity and should'nt compromise their staple diet.

Always ensure there is a supply of fresh water, particularly when feeding dry food and during warm weather. It may take a little while for the hedgehogs to get used to a different food but do persevere as this is normal with all animals.

Also suitable for badgers and foxes.

Bunzies love it

Got this as it seemed like a high quality pellet food for my 2 bunz. I at first mixed a small amount in with their old pellet food. I was really saddened to see they would eat the old pellets and totally ignore these until later when they would go back. Now the mixture is 50/50 and they totally ignore the old pellets. They even run excitedly to their food bowl in anticipation of it. These pellets also look more like nuggets with a variety of other veg things in there. I often hated the look of the typical pellets. Really happy with this product and will continue to buy this until they are older to switch to the adult version.

Great harness but sizing issue

Well made harness but small was too small for my dog but medium was way too large.

Bark control unit

It does nothing to stop the barking. The dogs bark next to the device.

Dogma Slow feeder bowl

We love these bowls! The quality, design and size (and colours!) are the best I've found. The only issue I've had is that the white base comes loose after a while
