Best dog food for husky puppy

Raising a husky in India is no less a herculean task. You have to protect him from high-temperature ranges, unpredictable weather conditions of the Indian subcontinent, etc. But things take a sudden twist when it comes to feeding your husky. India is well known for its spicy cuisine. Meanwhile, Husky pups are known to have a relatively sensitive digestive system. That means your regular homemade meals can cause life-threatening situations for your husky puppies. Luckily, shelves of most Indian supermarkets and e-commerce sites have some of the best meals that can soothe the taste buds of your pet as well as maintain his health. Here are my top 5 picks for the best dog food for husky puppies in India.

1. Orijen’s Puppy Large

With an undoubted reputation of more than a decade, Orijen’s product had always been the first choice among vet nutritionists and experienced pet owners.

Orijen’s Puppy Large food is the best food that is currently available in the market.  They are manufactured such that even the pups with the sensitive digestive system, can have it without any further health issues. This dog food contains a surprisingly healthy list of ingredients such as:

  • Whole salmon 
  • Herring meal 
  • Chicken cartilage 
  • Boneless chicken 
  • Whole herring 
  • Boneless walleye 
  • Boneless turkey 
  • Whole eggs and chicken meat.

Pros:

  • All these ingredients provide a considerable amount of necessary proteins that are crucial for the proper muscle development of your furry friend. 
  • Orijen further offers an unmatched quality of meat that naturally provides what your dog needs, without the inclusion of artificial flavoring, coloring, or added nutrients. 
  • Cartilage and meat have been into a perfect ratio, which mimics the natural diet of your husky. 
  • It contains a limited low-glycemic carbohydrate (roughly limited to 20%), which is an essential move for maintaining the balance of the diet. 
  • It contains a whole prey diet.
  • Infused kibble with an unmatchable, creamy taste.

It could be a staple dog food as it is easily chewable and digestible. If you are an owner that is pledged for giving the best to your dog, then Orijen is the brand you must completely rely upon.

Puppy Food Buying Guide

You don’t have to be an expert and know every right proportion of nutrition. But having a basic knowledge of features to look for in dog food can really help you select the best dog food for your Siberian Husky puppy in India.

Primary Ingredients

Dog food lists their ingredients in the order of their pre-cooked weight. In simple words, 1st listed ingredient has contributed the most, and the last one has the least pre-cooked amount. You can find the list of ingredients either on the food package or on their website.

The first thing to do is to look at the dogfood’s five primary ingredients and see how healthy they are.

Healthy Ingredients

You want healthy and nutritionally rich ingredients in the top 5 of the list. Make sure least 3 of the five ingredients are fresh meat-based.

Ingredients to Avoid

There are a few ingredients to avoid:

Grains: It is advised to prevent grain-based dog foods.

Meat By-products: Meat by-products are controversial ingredients. They are made of remaining parts of animals that are not consumed by humans. These parts usually include kidney, intestine, and sometimes even beak and feet of the animals. It’s better to avoid foods with such by-products.

Filler: Fillers are another thing to look for. They have no nutritional value and just fill up your husky’s stomach. Strictly avoid these.

Artificial color and artificial preservatives: Both of these can be harmful to your pup’s health. They both are found in cheap dog foods.

Final Thoughts

Huskies are beautiful creatures, and to maintain their beauty please feed them high-quality dog foods only.
