Home Forums Champions’ chat wet food versus dry food Reply To: wet food versus dry food


I have tried, but now never use wet food, for the following reasons:-
1) Attracts other animals more than the dry.
2) Goes off in warmer weather.
3) Expensive option.
I generally buy Hedgehog nibbles at 20kg a time which can last through the season (outside of hybernation period).
Another observation is that hedgehogs can be creatures of habit when it comes to food. I once bought a well known make of nibbles and the hogs would not touch them. Also, recently my current supplier seems to have changed the source (or recipe ) and for a few days the nibbles were barely touched.
Having just bought 20kg of these I persevered with these and now things are back to normal and all 7 bowls are consumed each night.
