Why Is My Husky Not Eating?
As a husky owner, it’s normal to worry when they don’t seem interested in their food. After all, a healthy appetite is a good sign of a happy and active husky. So, why is your husky not eating? Read on to find out some possible explanations and what you can do to help.
Reasons Why Your Husky Is Not Eating
There are many reasons why your husky might not be interested in their food. It could be that they’re not feeling well, they’re experiencing some stress, or there’s something wrong with their food. If you’ve ruled out the first two options, then it’s likely that the issue is with the food itself.
They Want Different Food
One possibility is that your husky is simply bored of their kibble. Just like us, dogs can get tired of eating the same thing day in and day out. If this is the case, try mixing things up by adding some wet food to their kibble, or giving them freeze-dried treats as a special treat.

Not Enough Exercise
Another possibility is that your husky isn’t getting enough exercise. A dog’s appetite is directly proportional to their activity level; the more active they are, the more they’ll want to eat. Make sure you’re taking your husky on regular walks and runs, and playing with them often. If they’re not getting enough mental stimulation, they may start using meal time as an opportunity to burn off excess energy.

They Eat When They Are Hungry
Sometimes huskies will simply save the food for later. This could be a natural instinct from their wolf ancestors; not knowing when they will find their next meal. All I know is that our huskies tend to eat when they are hungry, not when you give them the food. They tend to eat very small amounts of kibble, multiple times throughout the day.
Why Is Your Husky Not Eating?
If your husky suddenly loses interest in their food, it’s important to take notice. While there are many possible explanations, the most likely one is that something is wrong with their food or they just aren’t hungry yet. To remedy the situation, try mixing up their kibble with wet food or treats, and make sure they’re getting plenty of exercise.
