1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: New Siberian Husky puppy and not sure what to feed   Thu Apr 19, 2012 5:59 pm

I have never owned a Husky and we will be getting the new puppy in a few weeks and I am so confused on what to feed. We have Golden Retrievers and they are on Orijen adult now but when they were puppies I was told not to feed Orijen because it was to high in protein since Goldens are a large breed. Would Orijen or Acana be ok for a husky puppy? I don't want to feed any foods associated with Diamond so I know that does limit me. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I think you could feed Orijen puppy no problem. Or Acana since it's all life stages. Siberians are a medium breed dog and generally puppy growth isn't as great of a concern as it is with other breeds.

Personally both of those brands would be what I would recommend Smile

Orijen Puppy Large is what I fed Luna. Switched her to 6-Fish after. She's been on it till now. Starting her transition to Regional Red now. 6-Fish stinks up the entire room when we feed her lol.

Orijen and Acana are great foods. If you want to explore another option, we had wonderful luck with Blue Wilderness puppy. I know you want to stay away from Diamond, but if you ever do wander back that way, Taste of the Wild is excellent and hasn't been affected by the recalls.

I'd stick with the Orijen puppy or Acana as well.

Just to throw out another option, you could check out our raw feeding sub-forum. As someone who is obviously concerned about the quality of food you feed, you might be interested in the value of raw.

Just to be positive I looked up the protein levels on Acana and Fromm. Acana is about 33% and Fromm is 24% Are you guys positive Acana won't be to much? At what age can they switch to Orijen? I believe Orijen's protein is 38%.
