    Introduction

    Hello,

    I am a new user on this forum. I feel happy to join her.

    Recently I have become an owner of Alaskan Klee Kai puppy. He is really very cute.

    I want to know he is very small right now so which type of food is good for this breed.



    Thank You

    welcome to the forum. A lot of people recommend puppy food for the first year. But I've fed a raw diet to all my dogs starting at 2 months old. Best most natural diet there is. Dogs brought up on a raw diet seldom develop allergies, they grow properly and far less incidents with vets.

    Welcome to the forum!

    To answer your questoin, forget anything people say about food type for the breed. Age, activity level, and physical condition are the factors you need to account for. If you don't feel comfortable with feeding a raw diet - which is completely understandable, although such diets get a bad rap - feed the puppy grain-free canned food labeled for puppies.
    Rescued is my favorite breed. Don't shop, adopt!

    there is a lot of fat in canned dog food, feeding just canned food tends to make them fat

    Hi and welcome! Like others have suggested, I think a high quality canned and dry food should be given daily, I like the idea of both for my cat and dog. Like Linda said, it's important to feed a puppy formula in both canned and dry for a young dog like that.

    and who in their right mind would put a young dog or cat on a weight control food?

    I think it's good to balance canned and dry, I think that all canned every day will put excess weight on the dog eventually.

    Just saying not all canned dog foods are high in fat.
