Your Dachshund FAQs, answered

What's the best dog food for Dachshunds with IVDD?

With their short legs and long bodies, it’s no surprise where their ‘sausage dog’ monikers have come from. But their body shape can cause problems: up to one-quarter of Dachshunds suffer from clinical signs relating to Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD).

So, what should sausage dogs with IVDD eat? Lyka meals are rich in anti-inflammatory ingredients like omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil and sardines, to reduce painful inflammation and support your Dachshunds' spinal health.

How much should a Dachshund eat?

Their small stature means it can be quite easy for Dachshunds to gain weight, especially if they’re not on a portion-controlled diet or don’t get enough exercise.

Lyka’s meals take the guesswork out of dinner time: each custom portioned meal provides complete and balanced nutrition without risking excess weight gain. Made with quality proteins and low in complex carbohydrates to maintain steady energy levels and support a healthy weight and body shape. Lyka is the ideal diet for Dachshunds.

What's the best food for my Dachshund with a sensitive stomach?

Lyka has many benefits for dogs with sensitive stomachs. Our meals are gently steamed — this promotes healthy digestion, reduces risk of pathogens, and maximises the amount of gut-friendly phytonutrients for your Dachshund to benefit from.

Our food is formulated with highly digestible ingredients full of fibre, with an emphasis on low-glycaemic index carbohydrates to avoid blood sugar spikes that cause damage to the gut lining.

Lyka’s real food formulation includes prebiotic and probiotic ingredients, and contains the optimal omega 6:3 ratio to encourage gut lining health and repair. A diet rich in omega-3 fats (like Lyka) can help reduce inflammation in the intestines, which could be contributing to digestive issues.

What's the best food to feed a Dachshund puppy?

Puppies need nutrient-dense food to support their growth. Lyka meals are custom portioned to suit your Dachshund puppy’s breed and growth milestones, providing all the macro and micronutrients they need at each stage.
