  1. The way I know to teach him to go outside to wee or poo is to remove the pad from indoors and start taking him outside. It would probably help initially to place the pad outside too, particularly if it's got a wee scent on it. Take him out regularly and particularly after eating, drinking, sleeping, bursts of high energy etc... stay out there with him and if he starts going to the toilet out there then immediately praise him enthusiastically. He basically needs to make the connection between needing the toilet and going outside. The problem with pads is that you end up having to teach two different things.

  2. Did she say why the recommendations were changing? Are the worming products less effective than before such as when frontline flea treatment reduced their active ingredient quantity making it OTC rather than prescription strength. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  3. Has he been trying to dig underneath your house? [emoji33] I remember watching an animal rescue program about an animal trapped underneath a house in Australia I think (RSPCA type programme). I was sitting there wondering why it needed rescuing from a tiny hole and then the camera panned into the recess and showed you pretty much the entire underneath of the house! Basically one huge open space. They ended up sending one guy into the hole to commando crawl over to the injured animal and get them out if I remember rightly. I was shocked as you can probably tell.

  4. I'm popping back again, lol. Another thing that popped in my mind was someone's dog I've heard of has been having problems with a large red patch of scabbed and sore skin spreading across her huskies face. She's tried a lot of different things with varying success. [emoji20] Hopefully the steroids will help you and if they do then that in itself might possibly offer some clues as to what's causing it. However. If you fancy a bit of research, allergies are sometimes looked into with recurrent skin breakouts. I've heard of something called apoquel mentioned to help combat it. Not had personal experience myself though. So can't comment on it. If you end up going down that path with your vet it might be worth asking them. Another treatment that I've heard of for skin wounds is colloidal silver. Might be worth reading up on it and if it's appropriate to this situation asking your vet if it's suitable to try (I don't know if it reacts to other medications or not). Hopefully the answer will be found pretty quickly and you won't need to try a lot of different things. Fingers crossed for you both. Xx Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  5. Ive tried raw chicken wings with mine, mixed success. Ice eventually worked out it was food and ate it. [emoji1360] Bear on the other hand wouldn't eat it. Instead she hoarded it and licked at it occasionally. Didn't fancy a potential fight breaking out or raw chicken being spread around the room so I gave up. She's really not much of a raw food fan. Which is really odd to my mind. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  6. Awwww. I love that happy wide ear splitting grin on the first pic particularly. One happy pup. [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  7. Good to hear from you Amina, although I'm sorry to hear it's under these circumstances. Sorry for your loss. [emoji20] Honestly I don't know how long it will last, I guess it's like with us humans in that it varies a lot. Only things I can think to help are to do lots of the things he would typically enjoy the most. Going for a long walk can help, exercise helps to occupy the mind and the change of scenery might hopefully help for a little while. They recommend joining a walking group for human depression so I guess it can't hurt to try. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  8. Lovely photos. Hello Mr Bear [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  9. Mine eat grass quite often but not in the same way as if they want to throw up. Normally they'll just have a little munch here and there but if they want to be sick then they're constantly eating it, as quick and as much as possible. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  10. Definitely a vets trip is in order. We can give advise, support and suggestions about many things but when it comes to medical issues that need diagnosing and treatment, you can't really do that over the internet. Good luck xx Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  11. If someone is telling you that pure huskies only have blue eyes then seriously don't even waste your time listening to them, they've clearly not got a clue about the breed. [emoji85] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  13. Oh wow, I'm so sorry, that looks very uncomfortable. [emoji20] I was initially going to ask about autoimmune conditions but read you've ruled those out. Only other thing I can think to ask is has she been swabbed to check which strain of bacteria she's suffering from? Some broad spectrum antibiotics won't always work most effectively to clear things up 100%. Sorry I'm not much help, can't really think of much else to suggest right now [emoji20] Edit: not sure how much use this is but I've heard that over in the states you can get a pet care credit card to help pay off the cost of treatments bit by bit with those vets who are registered with the scheme. Also if there are any vet training places in your area sometimes they are cheaper. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  14. Grain free food is usually a good place to start if you can. A very gradual change of food too over a couple of weeks is also a good idea to try to limit any further stress on his stomach. Like the others have said over feeding can cause the runs. A bland diet of chicken and rice can help settle things down. I also used to buy tubes of pro kaolin plus paste like it was going out of fashion for Ice (he had liquid poo regularly for months!) not something you have to get but I found it helped and given that it was an ongoing issue I took all the help I could get, lol. Turned out that the only food he could eat was chappie. He was on it for years before he was able to tolerate anything else. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
