Hi The Gallaghers

I’m not familiar with dried dog food, other than a sort of cereal based one (from years ago), which I can’t imagine hogs liking. We more often seem to hear about dried cat/kitten food on the Forum. Make sure that any food has good nutritional value, plenty of protein and not more phosphorous than calcium.

But feeding is supposed to only be supplementary to the wild food hogs can find for themselves, so you could theoretically leave out smaller amounts. Sometimes quality makes up for quantity.

I sometimes think we concentrate too much on the Forum about feeding hogs and not enough on creating better habitat for them, so they can find wild food. So you might like to think about improving habitat as well. I’m sure most of us could make improvements in that respect – I certainly could!
