dog food

my husky balto is 2 years old and always has been a finicky eater. he is only 42lbs and was started on purina one as a puppy then at 8mos would not eat, after a battery of tests they determined he was finicky. i tried many natural brands and did the food change slowly but he always got sick - the natural stuff was too strong for him. Then we tried Beneful and he loved it. Now 8mos. later he has decided he does not want this. He has not eaten in 2 days and not sure what to do. My vet says i need to switch him to a puppy food because he needs to gain weight and has a high metabolism. We are in Florida so he is active all year long. any thoughts - wellness, solid gold, eukanuba? i have a husky pup we are fostering and she eats anything. she is on royal canin but i have to feed separate all she will eat all the food.

As others have said, you need to feed your husky high quality food. Beneful is one of the worst foods on the market. Check out the WholeDogJournal website for great information on food ingredients and how to tell good from bad.

my husky bono is finicky, he weights 50 lbs compared to my girl who weighs 58 lbs and eats everything. my vet says as long as he goes no longer then 3 days without eating to not worry and that it is somewhat common with this breed to not overeat like some dogs. i feed mine Iams can food and when he gets hungry he will eat. i do add a couple tablespoons of ground beef to their food to help intice him to eat. he has always been kinda on the thin side but healthy, i have also added some of his favoritie treats to get him to eat such as he loves cheese so i will sprinkle some shreded cheese on top of his food and this will get him to eat sometimes. i just watch to make sure he goes no longer then 3 days as vet said and he is fine just on the thin side.
