Home Forums Carers / rescuing a hedgehog this is what mealworms does to a hedgehog Reply To: this is what mealworms does to a hedgehog


I have been feeding a hedgehog mainly cat food but with mealworms as a tasty supplement, together with odd pieces of digestive biscuits. He doesn’t like cat biscuits! Should I stop feeding him mealworms? This hog has grown in weight since October from 240gms to 1000gms. I only want to do the best for him.

Also noticed today that a small area of his skin is a little white. All of his spines are intact and there is no flakiness.

Thank you for his advise.
