I have a Siberian Husky that is semi-working and, therefore, needs a higher caloric intake. Of course, he is a finicky eater, and to make matters worse he has a chicken allergy/sensitivity along with a sensitivity to most grains. I’m currently feeding him Taste of the Wild Southwest Canyon. I just have a problem with Diamond’s recall history, and the pup (well he’s 6 years old now) is seeming to get tired of it and not eating as much as he should.
I’m looking for a dry food that is high-calorie, grain-free, and chicken-free. 4.5-5 star rated is preferred. Cost isn’t a factor, but I would prefer it to be easily accessible either in-store or online in the US. If it’s not, make a solid case on why I should buy it. My dogs are my babies and probably eat better than me most times.
Thank you for your time,
My dog (not a worker) has been on Orijen or Acana dry foods. Both are rated high and have many different types from which you can choose
Zignature Zssentials from Chewy.com. My dogs are allergic to everything (I did the allergy panel testing) & we ate through the whole 5 star list before we found it. Great stools, great check ups & people say they’re “beautiful”.crazy4catsMember
Whole Earth Farms Pork, Beef and Lamb is poultry free and grain free. However, I do not consider it high calorie. My dogs do well on it. It is available at Petco and several feed stores. Good luck to you!JennaMember
Increasing fat will give you the highest calories (more than twice as many calories than a protein or carb). you can always add a bit of fat in the form of an Omega 3 like fish oil. This will give you about 40 calories per teaspoon.
