Hedgehog Food & Drink Containers

When it comes to hedgehog food and drink containers, you should probably look for variety.

One thing that most hedgehog owners do is to have a couple of different containers on hand in order to help keep their food environment clean.

This is something not entirely necessary as I think there is always time to clean all without disrupting the feeding times.


In fact, you only need to provide food a couple of times a day, not having the bowl topped up.


What to Look At

You will need to purchase at least one food and water container to keep in your hedgehog’s cage.

If you do not want to wash containers out daily (why not?), you may want to consider buying a few bowls so that you can swap them out with a clean one each day.


This is more tedious from my perspective, but some people like that.


Here are some of our favorite options for food bowls and water containers.


Food bowls

Your hedgehog’s food bowl should be heavy enough so your hedgie cannot dump it over, but no taller than 3 inches high so that it can reach the food quickly.

For these reasons, ceramic small pet dishes make a great option. Here are a few of our favorite choices:


Water dispensers (bottle type)

Your hedgehog will need a water container that should be refilled daily.

Some owners use a small bowl for water, but I’d suggest a small pet water bottle could work.

Since hedgehogs like to burrow, their shavings tend to land in an open water container and dry it up.

A water dispenser (bottle type) eliminates this problem, as it’s hung from the side of the cage in a closed container.



Wrap Up

The alternatives above are not essentially what you have to follow to have your pet looked after.

The main point here is to make them have what they need for their daily life and also, to have you free of worries in case you are not present.
