Alaskan Malamute Diet

What Should I Feed My Alaskan Malamute? 

A little About Alaskan Malamutes
The Alaskan Malamute is a heavy dog bred for power and endurance. They have a double coat. The undercoat has an oily and woolly texture and can be as thick as two inches. The outer guard coat is coarse and stands off the body. The Malamutes' tails aid in keeping them warm when they curl up in the snow. They are often seen wrapping the tail around their nose and face, which presumably helps protect them against harsh weather such as blowing snow.  Malamutes are a quiet breed (seldom barkers) and love people which makes them unreliable watchdogs. They average a 10-12 year lifespan. Female should be: 22–24 inches tall and 71–84 lbs where males are 24–26 inches tall and 79–95 lbs.  Alaskan Malamutes are prone for health issues such as: Uveodermatologic Syndrome, Follicular Dysplasia, Diabetes Mellitus, and Hip Dysplasia

How Much Should I Feed My Alaskan Malamute
Alaskan Malamutes are not enormous eaters like some other breeds their size. On average they will eat between 4 to 5 cups of high quality dry dog food a day which you need to divide that into 2 meals. NEVER feed them just once a day, it's not healthy to eat that much food in one setting and can result in health issues such as bloat (which can kill).

Basic Ingredients to Look for
Real meat should always be the first ingredient. An abundance of whole fruits and vegetables will help his body absorb essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients that he needs to maintain his high energy level. A good source of Glucosamine will help support healthy bone and joint development and Taurine maintains heart health. DHA is important for brain development. Probiotics  are strongly recommend in a food because they allow your pet to absorb more nutrients from their meal as well as reduce gas, lower stool volume and helps keep that "tootsie roll" poop you always want to see in a health dog. Ideally, select a formula that is customized to meet his individual requirements, such as age, activity level, and existing health conditions.

What Brand of Food is the Best 
Diet and nutrition is probably one of the most important decisions you will make for your pet because it affects their long-term health, immune system, vital organs, condition of their teeth, coat and even affects their lifespan so educate yourself and choose the brand of food for your pet wisely.
