How Much to Feed Your Hedgehog

How much should I feed my hedgie?

If your hedgehog is young, underweight, thin, or very active, then I recommend free feeding. Put a small dish in his cage with about 3T of food and refill as it gets low.

For older hedgehogs, over weight, or inactive, you want to cut down the amount of food they eat. Usually about 1.5T/ day is sufficient, but it varies by hedgehogs and by size.

If your hedgehog is so big that s/he can't ball, then it is time it limit food and encourage activity. Switching to a mix that contains light food is a good idea.
