It begins in a fairly simply way. You pick up your pup from the
breeder, with instructions for Siberian Husky care and current
diet requirements in tow. You follow those instructions as long
as your pet is still considered a puppy, but once adulthood hits
– then what? Diet and nutrition are very important considerations
in your Siberian Husky’s care, since a well fed dog is generally
a healthy and happy dog. You might have already heard that Siberians
require less food than other dogs of comparable size. But what
does that food need to look like? There are some guidelines that
you can use to ensure that your dog is receiving proper diet and
nutrition as part of the overall care of your Siberian Husky.
There are even ideas and recipes that you can use to cook up some
special homemade treats for your special pet! These will be covered
in more detail later in the site. For now, you will receive some
basic information on the proper way to care for your Siberian
Husky during feeding time.
One of the first rules of thumb to keep in mind is that an abrupt
switch in your dog’s diet can be quite hard on his digestive system.
If you decide that a dietary change is necessary for the well
being of your pet, introduce the new food gradually by mixing
it in with the current fare. You can increase the amount of new
food in the mixture until you finally phase out the old diet completely.
This dietary switch can be made to accommodate your personal preference,
your dog’s taste or simply be a matter of convenience.
Many will recommend that you avoid free feeding your Siberian
Husky. Free means filling a dish for your dog and leaving it out
so that your husky can eat at his leisure. If your dog seems to
eat all of the food that you place before him, no matter what
the amount, you will probably need to opt for scheduled feedings
with measured amounts. This will ensure that your dog does not
overeat. Part of responsible Siberian Husky care is making sure
that your dog does not develop a weight problem, as this can lead
to many other health problems over the years. Talk to your veterinarian
about the best amount to feed to your dog, keeping in mind that
caring for a Siberian Husky properly generally means smaller quantities
of food than for other dogs of similar size.
Diet And Exercise
Besides feeding your dog the proper diet in the correct amount,
exercise will help to keep your dog healthy and avoid a weight
problem. Siberian Husky care includes exercising your dog daily
by taking him on a walk or jog, or playing fetch in the backyard.
This regular exercise will maintain your dog’s muscle tone and
keep his digestive system regular. You should select a food for
your dog that will support the amount of activity he engages in
every day. For a working Siberian Husky, care should include a
high performance dog food. For a dog that takes a walk or run
every day, a maintenance type of food should be sufficient in
meeting his dietary needs.
Besides knowing how to feed your dog, Siberian Husky care involves
right diet to feed your Siberian Husky. There are certain
foods that should be included in your dog’s daily diet – and others
that should never be offered under any circumstances.
