Help a Hedgehog - "Hedgehogs have declined by around a third since the millennium" - The State of Nature report, 2013.
The horizon is uncertain for our friend the Hedgehog. Whilst wildlife charities and conservation experts consider what can be done to help protect what's left of the Hedgehog population, take action in your own garden to feed and protect them. Don't wait! Do something today.
Our Hedgehog Mix provides an energy-boosting, protein-rich addition to a Hedgehog's natural diet. A blend with good levels of carbohydrate-rich grains, which can be fed in small dishes or straight from the ground.
Whatever you do decide to put out for your Hedgehog, do not put out bread and milk! Certainly, Hedgehog's will eat them - but the swelling of bread in their stomach, and the fact that cows milk gives Hedgehogs diarrhoea, means that it is not the best thing to give them by a long stretch.
Instead, put out fresh water, in a shallow dish, to make sure that your spiky friend doesn't suffer from malnutrition.

My Hedgehogs Lilly and Twiggy Do the work for me in the garden, with snails and slugs, so at night they get their treat of Haiths hedgehog food which disappears at night so they must love it and helps them to maintain their weight for winter when in hibernation.
Hello Anthony, it sounds as if Lilly and Twiggy are very deserving of their nightly treat. We're glad that our Hedgehog food goes down well after the main course of slugs and snails.
"Hedgehogs enjoy with something sweet mixed in or well minced beef or dog/cat tinned food."
"This seems to be acceptable for our hedgehogs so i hope that they continue to enjoy it."
