Homemade Dog Food for a Husky
Making your own food for your husky is the only way to ensure that it will get all the necessary nutrients for complete health. Commercial dog foods have many loopholes that allow them to get away with adding fillers, toxic preservatives, and turned or moldy meat and grains. Huskies are large dogs that require a lot of protein, as well as antioxidants and vitamins to be able to work hard like the breed is intended to do. Start with a basic recipe that yields about two meals worth for an average pet husky. Alter it by changing the meats and vegetables to add variety and overall balance of nutrients.
Boil or saute meat. Use more if the meat is very lean. This can be ground meat like beef or turkey, or chicken thighs and giblets. De-bone and chop up small. Set aside.
Boil fresh or frozen vegetables until tender. Do not include corn, soy, or onions, since these are not healthy for your husky. Good choices are carrots, broccoli, spinach, potatoes, yams, and garlic. Try to mix it up and use different colors.
Add the cooked rice or oatmeal to the meat. Then fold in the vegetables and let cool.
Add one sardine per day to a meal. This could be replaced with a fish oil capsule or flax seed if you prefer. Also, add any digestive enzymes or probiotics to the meal and serve.
