Q:

What do huskies eat?

A:

A Husky is a type of dog that is best fed a meat-based diet, just as one might feed any other type of dog. If necessary, the diet should be tailored to fit each individual Husky's age or health issues, which can be done with the help of a veterinarian.

Huskies were bred to be working dogs that travel long distances, carrying loads of various sizes. This breeding and training created a big dog that may not eat as much as other large breeds because his brain is wired to eat sparingly and run often. Just like other healthy dogs, the Husky can eat dry or wet dog food, but the best nutrition for this working dog will come through foods that contain plenty of protein.
