Havanese Diet

What Should I Feed My Havanese?

About Havanese
The Havanese dog originated in the 1800s in Cuba as a companion for the aristocracy. His expressive eyes, long, silky hair, and lapdog size make him the ideal family pet. In fact, his nickname is the Velcro dog because he clings to his owner so closely. Havanese dogs are highly energetic and excel in various roles from performing in the circus to assisting the physically challenged.

Feeding Recommendations
We recommend feeding your Havanese a half to one cup of high-quality, premium dry food a day. You can properly maintain your Havanese's weight by measuring his food and dividing the total recommended amount twice a day instead of leaving his food out all day. Your Havanese's daily food requirement and appetite may be much smaller than you realize. If he does not eat his whole portion of food, it may be that he has had enough to eat. Make sure to choose a blend that does not contain wheat, soy, or corn. These allergen-causing grains are fillers with no nutritional value that can lead to other health problems. An all-natural, grain-free formula with no preservatives or artificial colors will help avoid these issues.

 

Nutritional Requirements
Your Havanese has special nutritional requirements. While he is generally a healthy dog, he is prone to hip dysplasia. Premium dog food is a good source of natural Glucosamine to help support his joints and bone health. You can increase his lifespan 10 to 15 percent by feeding him an antioxidant-rich, high-protein formula with real meat as the first ingredient, followed by ample amounts of fruits and vegetables. A blend that contains Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids keep his skin healthy and coat silky. Prebiotics support a healthy digestive tract, and Taurine promotes heart health. Choosing food that is veterinarian developed and made in the U.S.A. is the best way optimize your Havanese's health and longevity.
