Fresh Food for Huskies
Siberian huskies attract fans because of their striking appearance—they’re athletic, with dramatic coloring, thick coats, and ice-blue or mismatched blue and brown eyes. They also charm many humans with their demeanor. Their intelligence and outgoing, active nature can make them great partners for playtime and outdoor adventures.
However, huskies can be challenging for novice dog owners or those who prefer a canine companion with maximum chill. It’s common to hear huskies described as “mischievous” and “always on the go. And it’s important to give all this energy an outlet lest it leads to restlessness or destructive behavior. Give them ample daily exercise, and equally important, mental stimulation to keep them happy and healthy.

Huskies are prone to joint issues, especially hip dysplasia and patellar luxation. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis. Even if kibble contains these healthy fats, it can go rancid sitting on the shelf for long periods. Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact, can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact making it the best dog food for huskies.
Know what’s in the bowl
For huskies with dry and itchy skin, sensitive stomachs, or other signs of food allergies and sensitivities, it’s important to know exactly what you’re feeding—something that can be impossible with kibble, which often contains ingredients not listed on the bag. Allergies and intolerances to food are all too common, and many dog owners notice symptoms clear up when they switch to fresh food.
