Thank you all so much for responding. Yes, it may be that the wildlife rescue misunderstood and was talking about sick hedgies …. The phosphorus contents of beef certainly is interesting information.
It seems the best decision to continue feeding the semi-moist Spike they like (I hear a faint ‘yippee’ coming from the garden…) and I’ll try a good brand puppy food too. We do have a few youngsters around who might like a nibble of that.
Sometimes I guess it’s a case of ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. They are eating well, love the pond with the beach, and seem very healthy.
