    The best 4 American dry kibbles for me to get shipped to the UK?

    Hi,

    I live in the UK, and after spending hours looking through our range of cat foods, I've concluded that there is literally nothing suitable where I don't have to make at least a few compromises.

    I've decided to order some food from America, and get it shipped over here, as in America the quality is much better than the UK. So, I was wondering to save me another few hours looking through the American foods, if anyone would be good enough to share their own research with me by recommending 4 dried mixes?

    Ideally, I'd like to include a venison/pea one. We're quite paranoid about fish content over here, so I've never fed my hogs a food which included fish, and ideally, they should be fairly widely available so I have a change of ordering them from the same website to avoid huge postage costs


    Thanks so much in advance

    Hi Rachael-have you looked into whether any of the breeders in the UK sell some sort of food mix? I know a lot of us in the US do. I know it doesn't answer the question you asked but I think I would look into that first. I would hate to have you relying on food from so far away because I have seen shipments go missing etc

    This dont really answer you question.
    But I know that a lot off danish breeders import "Spikes hedgehog dinner" from England, maby you could try that. I would import it to Denmark myself, but it is to expencive when you only have one hedgehog.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your posts. Spikes dinner is a terrible brand of food, even worse than some of the cat foods.. a UK mix would have UK foods in it, which is the problem really.

    I'm a breeder, and have a food mix with the best kibbles that I can find, however there always seems to be something nasty lurking towards the bottom of the ingredients. For example, a 40% pure chicken kibble that I use is great in that it doesn't have any animal derivatives, or animal meal etc, but it has brewers yeast and maize.

    I posted on hedgehogcentral and got quite a few good suggestions, so I have some things to look in to

    Well good I could not import Spikes then.
    What is it you think is wrong with it (exept for being an UK mix)?
