Our hogs aren’t interested in the wet pet food either (only the dam cats!). The only time they will eat it is running up towards hibernation. It’s good to know that the fish flavours or oils are not a problem; I’ve spent ages studying the ingredients in supermarkets trying to find biscuits without them in. Hedgehogs are good swimmers, so I suppose if you think about it, they would be more likely to come across a fish for supper rather than a chicken or a cow!

With regard to the Ark Wildlife hedgehog biscuits, if anyone was thinking of ordering any, I would try a small amount first just to make sure that they like it. I ordered a whopping great bag last year because it was so highly recommended and they wouldn’t touch it, I ended up giving it away to someone with some more grateful and less contrary hedgehogs! Their favourite at the moment is Purina One and Go Cat kitten biscuits mixed together, I’ve tried to sneak some Spikes into the mix that a friend gave me, but they just pick everything else out around it and leave it for the birds! 🙂
