Hedgehog Food and Nutrition - Spike's Delite - HEDGEHOGS by VickieHedgehogs are in the Insectivore family. In the wild, a hedgehog’s diet consists primarily of insects. In captivity, our pet hedgehogs need a ration that is a little more convenient to feed than live bugs! The two most important components of a proper food for hedgehogs are high protein and a low fat content. Consequently, dry cat foods, with poultry as their main ingredient, have constituted the main staple of many hedgehog diets for years.

In our first decade of keeping hedgehogs, HEDGEHOGS by Vickie, had relied upon several brands of dry formula cat food as the main diet for our hedgehogs. During that time, several companies had endeavored to develop a dry food designed specifically for hedgehogs. Some have come and gone. Some have been marketed regardless of the fact that they contained questionable nutritional value. Others have had great nutritional content and ingredients, however they just didn’t taste good to the hedgies! Either way, commercial hedgehog foods have been somewhat of a disappointment.

Spike's Delite Hedgehog Food - HEDGEHOGS by VickieThat is until we discovered Spike’s Delite Hedgehog Foods! Spike’s Delight is manufactured by Pet-Pro Products of Middletown, Missouri.  Pet-Pro is a manufacturer of quality specialty animal diets.  Their product line caters to all sorts of exotic critters from Sugar Gliders to Wallabies.  At the core of their plethora of patented formulas is Spike’s Delight, the highest and most palatable line of hedgehog foods available!

Initially, we discovered that although Spike’s Delite had a great reputation from breeders to pet owners alike, it was difficult to obtain. A high end, specialty product designed to meet the needs of a niche market, Spike’s Delite isn’t an item that can be easily found at the local Super Pet Store chain. So we set out to figure out a way to obtain this excellent product for both our animals and those of our customers.

With The Following Features:

* PATENTED COOKING PROCESS

Spike’s Delite is manufactured using a unique “dry extrusion” process. The product is cooked using friction and force under pressure, instead of a conventional steam cooking method. This extrusion technique pre-cooks the ingredients, which increases digestibility of protein and energy by a minimum of 10%. It also eliminates molds & aflatoxins from the raw ingredients. This patented process allows for high heat, short cook time, and a higher quality food for your pet!

* HIGHEST QUALITY INGREDIENTS

The number one ingredient in Spike’s Delite is chicken meal. Pet-Pro Products uses only true rendered 60% protein chicken. This chicken is the highest available to the pet food industry, and is only one step below human grade level. They do not use any of the feet, beaks or viscerals found in lower quality products!

The number two ingredient (except in the Pro-Diet) is extruded yellow corn. Corn has had some bad PR as a main ingredient of animal feeds. This is due primarily to some of the risks of stabilization in conventional steam cooking. These concerns are eliminated by Spike’s Delite’s unique extrusion process.  The use of corn in animal diet has also generated criticism due to the intrinsic difficulties of digesting corn. The patented extrusion process used by Pet-Pro Products partially pre-digests the corn. This makes the corn contained in Spike’s Delite to have a higher digestibility than that found in other feeds. You can feed this excellent product with confidence.

Spike’s Delite Hedgehog Foods.

*SPECIAL BLEND OF HERBS AND SUPPLIMENTS

Three of Spike’s Delite Hedgehog Foods contain a special mix of supplemental ingredients. These include “chelated” trace minerals, enzymes, and herbs. This blend provides for better digestibility and makes for better absorption of nutrients.

* EXCELLENT PALATABILITY

Not only is Spike’s Delite nutritionally superior, more easily digested, and made with the highest quality ingredients…but is tastes good too! Our hedgies not only thrive on it nutritionally, they also love the taste. And not only is it appealing to their palate, it has a high crunch factor! This is especially important for long term oral hygiene.

HEDGEHOGS by Vickie believes that SPIKE’S DELITE HEDGEHOG FOODS are the very best on the market. This is why we feed it to our hedgehogs with confidence. All of our baby hedgies are weaned on SPIKE’S DELITE PREMIUM HEDGEHOG FOOD. We recommend that our customers continue to provide it as the main diet to their animals.
