Exotic Nutrition's Hedgehog Booster ensures that the hedgehog is getting the vitamins and minerals it needs to thrive. Feeding a balanced diet is a priority for good health and wellbeing, and vitamin supplements can help fill any nutritional voids. If at least 75% of your hedgehog's diet is made up of Exotic Nutrition's Hedgehog Complete, supplements are optional, because the pellet diet already contains added vitamins and nutrients.
