A miniature schnauzer’s diet is very important in maintaining their health. Mini schnauzers can have endocrine and skin problems, they gain weight easily, and their bodies sometimes have problems digesting fats and certain grains. Although mini schnauzers love table scraps, these really need to be limited. Good nutrition is key to keeping your miniature schnauzer happy and healthy. Talk to your breeder and vet about Miniature Schnauzer food recommendations.
Here is a list of great, really good, and ok foods for your miniature schnauzer. Also listed are sites that can give you information about raw diets for dogs. I compiled this list based on my own experience, vet suggestions, breeder recommendations, and research online. I’m sure there are more excellent brands out there that I am not familiar with. Choose one that both works for your pet’s health and that they enjoy eating. If you have a brand you love, tell us in the comments and I will add it to the post.
Miniature Schnauzer Food Recommendations
There are lots of brands out there to choose from, this listing just selected a few that seem to work with our particular breed. Be sure to talk to your vet and breeder about choosing a food.
Also, if you are changing your miniature schnauzer’s brand of food, do it in increments by mixing in the new food with the old food and changing the ratio of new food to old food over the course of a few days. If you don’t swap gradually, you may find yourself clean up “schnauzer urk” all day.
