Feeding your Australian Terrier Revisited and Updated

Posted by Theresa Goiffon on Monday, June 20, 2022 Under: Breed Information
Finding the right dog food for your Australian Terrier can be overwhelming at times. There are many options and opinions on this subject. I too have been at times overwhelmed. After months of research, I will share what we currently feed our dogs. We use to feed Taste of the Wild kibble with some raw but about a year or more ago some of my dogs would either not eat it or it didn’t agree with them. I discovered that the company had changed something. So I went on an extensive search to find something better. 

While I think feeding your dog raw with added supplements is best, it is just not practical for us with so many dogs and not easy access to ingredients where I live. We now feed our adults N & D Farmina. It is a high quality kibble. Our dogs have tried all of their flavors, grain free as well as their ancestral grain options and they love the food and they do very well on it. I still supplement their evening meal with some raw meat as well as fresh pumpkin or yogurt. They eat 1/3 of a cup of dry kibble in the morning and some kibble plus the other items mentioned to equal 1/3 of a cup at dinner time. 

We give them a few dog treats during the day, that are always made in the USA, grain free and natural ingredients. 

If your dog has specific dietary needs I suggest you consult with a veterinary nutritionist.
