Doesn't look like it's found too easily in Canada. Have you thought about getting it shipped from the US? Or trying another brand of food?

Have you thought about using Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul? Pam can ship it to you: http://www.canadianexoticpets.com/hedgehog.html

Royal Canin Slim 38 Cat food has also had very good reviews from canadian hedgehog owners, Innova Lite also has. They are both available in Canada, and you would not have to ship. Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul Lite has also been said to be a very good food, and Pam's shipping costs aren't bad at all. I personally think that these cat foods are a lot better than any hedgehog foods on the market right now, all I've seen or read about have poor quality ingredients, and poor fat-protein ratios.

Here are some links to articles and other hedgehog nutritional information sites (in case you haven't seen them already, there are a lot of different opinions on what is best for hedgehogs, but it's interesting to read some different theories):

http://www.pogstarhedgehogs.com/nutrition/
http://www.mihog.org/diet/insects.phtml
http://www.feline-nutrition.com/locate.html
http://www.angelfire.com/wa2/comemee.../hhcare7A.html
http://www.naturapet.com/display.php...%3D%2773%27%5D

It is basically hit and miss with hedgehogs, and most people reccomend mixing at least 2 different types of food so that your hedgehog gets a good variety. No one food contains everything a hedgehog needs. I currently am feeding Royan Canin Slim 38, which she seems to really enjoy, it has good quality ingredients, and great protein and fat content; I am planning on adding Innova Lite into her diet pretty soon as well. The most important thing for hedgehogs is that they have high protein and low fat. The percentages you should be aiming for are Protein: 38% Fat: 10% Fiber: 16%. The lower the fat the better. Good luck, I hope I didn't give you a bunch of information that you already knew.

They do sell "hedgehog food" here, but really it is just catfood with a hedgehog package and a higher price tag. My hedgehogs have done just fine on premium cat food, and of course lots of treats and buggies.

Thanks redrose, although I am becoming convinced that it really is just cat food w/ a pic of a hegie on it!!! Still I would like to try some for Haley.
