Hi Annig

Don’t be too hard on yourself. Of course we all want to do our best for the hogs and we can’t know something until we find out! It is only fairly recently that the problem with the calcium/phosphorous levels has been more widely known.

I recall recently someone having a similar problem with mealworms and they switched to ‘I Love Hedgehogs’ food, which looks to be very similar to the Ark Wildlife Hedgehog Mix which some of the hog rescues apparently use. I think both of these have a very few mealworms in the mixture. As I recall they were able to cut out the extra mealworms comparatively easily and the hogs liked the new food. Hope you manage to find something the hogs there like. Will be interested to hear how you get on.
