All hedgehogs at Muddy Creek Farms will wean with the addition of chitosan powder to their diet. Chitin is found in the exoskeletons of arthropods, such as insects and crustaceans; a staple in the diet of wild hedgehogs. Preliminary studies have shown the addition of chitin to a cat food diet as a source of fiber may potentially aid in reducing obesity and related comorbidity in pet hedgehogs.
Directions: Sprinkle a pinch of chitosan onto your hedgehogs food at each meal and mix in to coat kibble to increase fiber content.
ALLERGY WARNING: Contains shellfish.
