bread and milk



"**Do not give them bread and milk**. They cannot digest the bread and cows milk gives hedgehogs very bad diarrhoea. Many hedgehogs die because of this wrong diet."

Linky

"Tinned Cat, Dog, Puppy or Kitten food. They prefer Chicken flavours best. Do not give Fish flavours
Cat or Kitten Biscuits. Only give meat flavoured biscuits. Do not give Fish flavours. The premium brands like Royal Canin, Burns, Hills, James Wellbeloved, or Iams are much better for them (The "cheaper" common brands contain much more cereal and are not so nutritious)"

My mates dog used to eat hedgehogs, spikes and all
#18
Hedgehogs feed on insects, snails, frogs and toads, snakes, bird eggs, carrion, mushrooms, grass roots, berries, melons, and watermelons

The hedgehog is occasionally spotted after a rainstorm foraging for earthworms.

they will consume tinned cat or dog food (with a preference for chicken flavours, and a dislike of fish)

dont feed them at all. They cope very well themselves being wild animals!

You wont be doing them any favours whatsoever by feeding them.
