Pet Hedgehog Care, Information, Facts & Pictures
Hedgehogs are mammals that have been around for millions of years. A hedgehog’s most distinctive trait are his quills. When threatened, a hedgehog is able to curl up into a ball with its quills extended. Hedgehogs as PetsThe African pygmy hedgehog is the most common type sold as pets. Four to six years is a normal life span, but a pet hedgehog can live up to ten years.
Since hedgehogs are nocturnal, they are best for people who are home in the evenings and at night. A hedgehog may not be a suitable pet for small children. Sometimes kids can be overzealous with their affection causing a hedgehog to become afraid and extend his quills. A hedgehog is fun to watch, quiet, not aggressive, and is fairly easy to care for. A hedgehog can be a wonderful addition for someone who wants a unique and entertaining pet.

Natural Balance Pet Foods
Normally, pets should be able to eat a meal and have regular bowel movements 1-2 times daily without excessive gas. Producing a solid, formed moist stool is also an indication of healthy digestion. Three or more bowel movements daily may point to an underlying medical condition. These conditions could indicate digestive issues, and/or that other medical conditions are present. The right balance of fibers will slow the passage of food through the intestines.
Many Natural Balance® diets, such as Synergy Dry Dog Formula and our Original Ultra® Whole Body Health® Formulas, feature a unique fiber layering system that provides a variety of complex fibers including inulin, oat fiber, pea fiber, and more. After a recent dietary change, allow 1-2 weeks for the intestinal microflora to adjust to the proteins, fats, and fibers reaching the colon. It is also important to ensure that your pet always has access to fresh clean water.
