The question “how to feed a husky puppy” must be solved even before the puppy appears in your house. Proper nutrition is the key to good health for your husky. The food system of dogs is different from that of humans, so feeding your husky with table scraps is not the best choice.
You can choose dry food or natural food for feeding your husky.
The general rules for feeding a husky are the same as for any other dog.
However, there are features specific to this particular breed. They must be taken into account.
Husky puppies 1-month-old are fed 5 – 6 times a day. Gradually, the number of feedings is reduced by increasing the portion. A 7-month-old puppy can be fed twice a day. It is better not to feed the dog at night.
If you choose “natural”, your task is to determine the daily amount of the diet. To do this, you can use the following formula:
Husky weight Daily food requirement Husky’s daily diet
16 Kg 2% of the husky’s weight 320 g
28 kg 2% of the husky’s weight 560 g
However, keep in mind that this is a rough estimate. Consider your husky’s lifestyle, activity level, body condition.
Naturally fed husky meat should make up at least 50% of the diet. Accordingly, if the dog consumes 400 gr. food per day, 200 gr. should be meat.
If you want to treat your husky with something special, choose dry prunes or dried apricots. The bones must first be removed.
You should not feed your husky before traveling and physical activities – so that there is no bloating or vomiting.
Check your pet regularly to make sure it isn’t starving or overeating.
It is advisable to transfer a pregnant husky to food for lactating females (if you are feeding dry food), if you prefer “natural” – reconsider the balance of the diet, in consultation with your veterinarian.
