Hi Shelagh

It’s good to hear you have a hog back. Sorry to hear to hear one of the hoglets was killed on the road.

My advice would be to give the sultanas, sunflower hearts and mealworms a miss and just offer hog food. Sultanas are bad for their teeth (sugary and sticky) , sunflower hearts are also implicated in Metabolic Bone Disease – possibly slightly less than mealworms. These things are ok in a properly balanced hedgehog food, but to the hogs it is enough of a treat being offered food at all.

Hope you see some more hogs soon, and hopefully hoglets again.
