20 Best Foods for a Picky Husky

My baby was dumped and left alone for about a week before we caught her and gave her a home. For the first 2 months she would hunt and eat crickets. She has finally realizes that she won’t be hungry again but she will eat almost anything that I eat. Including broccoli.

We use Purina One. She likes beef the most, but eats the other flavors. If she’s being picky, we sprinkle either some shredded cheese or parmesan cheese on the food.

I had the same issue with mine. We tried all brands of dog food and after a few days stopped eating it. So I went to boiled chicken and rice and sometimes put melted butter over it and or chicken or beef both that she ate a lot. Good luck. They can be picky eaters.

Our huskies did this. They get tired of the same food as humans do so you can keep the same food I will normally put chicken broth organic in it or try some eggs. They will also out smart you knowing you will buy a different food and just do it in general. I learned that the hard way

My girls and boys (4) eat the Costco brand the dry food, it comes in 3 different flavors. We tried the wet dog food, they gained weight. We mixed their dry food, or veggies, or chicken broth. I boiled salmon with some celery and carrots and mixed the broth with their food. They like yogurts, fruits, veggies, sweet bread and even the peels of mango and bananas. Take care.
