What are the quantities of food to feed your husky puppy?
The amount of food you need depends on several factors such as the size of your dog, its age, and whether it is a male or female. You will have to decide which one is most suitable for you. For example, if you have a small dog with little body weight (under 20 pounds) then it would be better not to overfeed him or her because they may become overweight. On the other hand, if you have a large dog with lots of muscle mass (over 20 pounds), then you might want to give him or her too much food so that he or she doesn’t gain weight.
A Husky Puppy’s Body Weight Chart
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measurement used to determine body fat percentage. A high BMI indicates that the person has a high level of body fat.
A low BMI means that the person has a low level of body fat. Dogs with a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 are considered underweight while those with a BMI greater than 25 are considered obese.
Husky puppies’ weights range from less than 15 ounces (0.4 kg) up to over 40 pounds (18 kilograms).
The average weight of huskies is around 14 pounds (6 kilograms). The feeding requirements of small dogs are different from those of larger dogs.
