When you pick up your puppy from the dog breeder, ask the breeder to advise you about the best diet to feed your Siberian Husky. Initially, follow the diet that he recommends. But as the dog grows into an adult, you will have to change its diet to suit your preferences. Do not make any sudden changes in your dog’s diet, as this can disrupt its digestive system and be the cause of gastric distress. The Siberian Husky is a small eater, so the small amount of food should be nutritious in order to keep the dog healthy.
Siberian Husky nutrition should consist mainly of a protein diet, and meat should be the primary ingredient in the food. Some Siberian Huskies suffer from allergies to wheat and corn, so they should be avoided as much as possible. There are plenty of dog foods available in the market, and Innova EVO is the very popular, but it is expensive. Canidae’s dog food is also good and reasonably priced, and is a high quality dog food.
Of course most dog food manufacturers take care about the nutrients that they add to the food. If you buy dog food that is especially sold for the Siberian Husky, it will take care of your Siberian Husky’s nutrition. Since the Siberian Husky eats very little, the dog food consumed each time is also of a very small quantity. Nevertheless, each dog requires a different quota of nourishment, and you have to decide that for your dog too. You should check whether a mix of canned and dry food is ideal for your dog or only dry food is enough. Consult your vet and the dog breeder if you have any problems or doubts.
A balanced diet is the best diet for your Siberian Husky. The diet should contain a proper balance of protein, carbohydrates, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. The ancestors of the Siberian Husky were used to such nutrient sources, and the same should be provided to your dog. Study and learn about the feeding habits and all about Siberian Husky nutrition before you decide on its best diet.
If you are not satisfied with the dog food available in the market, or if it is too expensive for you, you can cook meals for your pet at home. This is hardly time-consuming, but it goes a long way in improving Siberian Husky nutrition. Fresh food has fresh ingredients and no preservatives, all of which is ideal for good Siberian Husky nutrition. Your pet gets the best diet and you know exactly what it is eating. For Siberian Husky dog food recipes you can consult several books on canine nutrition.
The prime requirement of the Siberian Husky is fatty acids and if you give the dog fish and poultry, they will provide the necessary proteins as well as the fatty acids. Several foods should be avoided as they may cause allergic reaction for some Siberian Huskies. These forbidden foods include beef, soy, yellow corn, avocado, horsemeat and beet pulp. Vitamins and minerals are essential too, but be cautious about choosing the right types, as they vary from one breed to another.
