It’s Sassy Saturday again! Today we are talking about how we found the right natural dog food for our Husky! If you are not comfortable talking about puppy dog booties, I’m gonna need you to go move along to the next post because this is not for you.

We had quite a food journey with Sassy! When she was about 3-4 months old we started having problems with her anal glands. It was terrible. Her crate was stinky, our couch was stinky, and she was stinky! We had her anal glands emptied and that would solve the problem, but it kept happening. I researched online that some dogs just had this problem but it was getting to the point that we were having to do it every other week, not even making it that long occasionally. That’s when I started researching her food.
She was on Puppy Chow at first and then I switched her to Blue Buffalo Puppy food when I didn’t care for the Puppy Chow ingredient list. I read pumpkin was good for natural anal gland expression and firming things up, so I found some and we tried it out. It did help! We didn’t have to take her as much to get her glands expressed, but my husband was still frustrated by it. We both know her anal gland problems shouldn’t be happening. So as a last ditch effort, I researched “best natural dog food for anal gland problems”. Folks, there is NOT a lot out there about this.
I managed to dig up a list of the natural dog foods that had the most fiber in them. Whole Earth Farms had particularly good food – Whole Earth Salmon & Whitefish. It was between this one and another brand, and since I could get Whole Earth at a store in our town, I chose that one. Guys, it has been a lifesaver!! She has done so well on this food. It has one of the highest amounts of fiber in any dog food. Bonus is that her coat looks even healthier now that she’s been on this food for months!
I know some other Husky parents have had troubles with this too so I hope it helps them. My husband was considering having the surgery done surgery for it and I just did NOT want that for her. There were way too many risks for me! I’m happy we were able to find the answer with a fiber-rich, grain free natural dog food.
