Spike's Tasty Semi-Moist is a delicious, chicken based food for hedgehogs of all ages. This highly palatable feed can be served on its own or mixed with our other hedgehog foods from the Spike's range. Fed regularly, it will encourage visits to your garden all year round.
Leaving out a suitable food, such as Spike's Dinner or Wildthings Hedgehog
food, will help to encourage them to visit your garden; with their excellent
sense of smell they can detect food at quite long distances. The traditional
bread and milk is not a good idea as, although hedgehogs will tuck in and eat
it, it can cause tummy upsets and diarrhoea. Hedgehogs enjoy peanuts but these
should be fed crushed or as peanut granules (whole peanuts can lodge in the
mouth and cause necrosis) and only in small amounts as large amounts over a
period of time may cause brittle bone disease. Hedgehogs particularly need food
and water in the autumn to build up their weight ready for hibernation and in
the spring when they come out of hibernation and, also, during hot, dry spells
in the summer when their natural prey is in short supply.
Our hedgehog loves it. We have tried dried food from elsewhere but he leaves it. This is well worth the price.
Some of the hedgehog casualties I care for prefer it to the exclusion of cat meat and they gain weight just as well, if not better, than those that eat only meat.
