Thanks for the advice.

I compared wet Whiskas and Pedigree Chum:

Pedigree Chum – protein 7%, fat 3.8%, calories 79/100g
Whiskas 1+ – protein 8%, fat 4.7%, calories ?
Whiskas Kitten – protein 13%, fat 3%, calories 72/85g

Based on the above the kitten food looks the most nutritious. I couldn’t get nutritional percentages for Spikes hedgehog food so can’t really compare it and I couldn’t get any figures for salt, phosphorus or calcium content on any of them.

I bought some Spikes Semi Moist when I was last shopping and thought it was very expensive at £4.99 for 550g compared to £4 for 2400g (6 tins) of Pedigree Chum which I have been buying so far. I noticed Spikes recommends a 20g portion which seems very small compared to the around 80-100g of dog food I normally put out, do people only use this much Spikes generally?
