Need Tips And Advice On My 11 Week Old Husky!

32 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Okaay so when i first got my husky i got her from a breeder for my 18th birthday , its a family pet but im the one taking her to training ect. When we first got her i didnt even get told her correct age because when i got home i emailed the person n asked what was there date of birth and it turned out my husky was only 6 weeks :( so anyway i kept her and have been trying to do my best with her with the help of my family , she is a very spoilt dog im not going to lie and she gets so much love and affection its unreal . Although, 2 days ago we had an incident where i had open a cupboard door and myiah had come darting through whilst having one of her mad half hours and had got her tail stuck under the door . Ive never heard a dog cry like she did , i felt so bad , cried all day long and me and my family had taken her to the vets . They gave her pain killers and she came home . Although the day after (yesterday) we got told to bring myiah back so they could check on her and they gave her another lot of painkillers for her tail . U can imagine how bad ect i have felt since that happened , after that second lot of painkillers , we was on the way home and myia just suddenly started like crying and whining constantly assif she was in pain , immediately i thought it was the tail thing and felt even worse as i thought it was me , but then i searched her symptoms on the internet after she had been home for a few hours and not stopped crying , restlessness , licking/biting her sides , sick , runs , it had to be a bad stomach ! So then i started thinking what have they given her at the vet to make her feel like this so i rushed her back up last night at about 11 ( also this has never happened before but the vet told me she was just going to weight myiah when we went for the second needle but then i heard her crying as loud as she did when she was in pain , the vet come in and said shes gave her the needle then without telling me and without doing it infront of me) . The vet last night was vile !! She told me im mommy cuddling her and there isnt nothing wrong with her :( also she said she was doing all of this because she was just spoilt. but i also sin a vet try to take her temperature and grabbed her by the scruff of the neck on separate occasions and myiah screamed like she did when she was in pain! Someone please help me and tell me whats wrong with her :( and if she is just spoilt what do i do ?? If any other information needed please done hesitate to ask me !!

Welcome to the pack . Doesn't sound like she's acting like that due to being spoilt . Can u take her to a different vet n get a second opinion? It could be a side effect from what they've injected her with or could be something else like u said bad stomach, runs n being lethargic isn't good for a young puppy at all , sorry I can't be ov more help but I would really look into a different vet for her

first off I would recommend searching after that "breeder" again. I know the chances are slim, but maybe with some investigation and questioning you'd be able to gather information about Myiah's early life. A breeder that lied about their pup's age are most likely BYBs I'm afraid... and a lot of things can go wrong when you bred a dog without careful planning. If you didn't get any valuable information, get a vet (a different vet) to check in case she has any kind of internal problems that is causing her constant pain. I know it sounds paranoid, but I'm a paranoid so... yeah  :rolleyes: I'm only recommending this because she came from a rather irresponsible breeder. Assuming this is no internal problems:

 

1. Stomach problems, like diarrhea, is very common in husky puppies. But they don't cause abdominal pain. Bloat does... but you'd notice if it's bloat because her tummy would be as big as a balloon. Again I'd say get a different vet to check her, don't go to the internet. Never ever self-diagnose. Lethargy and constant whining indicates a whole lot of things. 

 

2. It might be the medicine. I can't believe the vet wanted to give her an extra dose of pain killers the very next day. How bad was that tail wound anyways? The ones I saw are never so bad they require so many painkillers. But then again this is just a wild guess. Can't say anything else besides "go see a different vet" :( but good luck xxx

 

and you don't need to feel guilty. I'm sure this is an accident. Accidents happen. About the spoiled dog thing? Well, if spoiling a dog is a crime, people would've built prisons instead of shopping malls  :lol:

I'm inclined to agree with what has already been said. One thing that springs to mind though is that Myiah wasn't like this until you took her to the vets. I'm also thinking, unless I've missed something, that they didn't weigh her. Most drugs are dispensed according to the dogs weight. Most certainly get a second opinion. Unless you know the vet and trust them implicitly I would always be wary. I have just had an incident with the stand in vet where I go. My trusted vet is off ill and the stand in doesn't appear to have a clue. After giving one of my dogs a full examination the vet came to the conclusion that she had something stuck up her nose and it should come out on it's own, completely missing the fact that she had kennel cough, so it does happen. You carry on giving you little girl all the love and fuss she can take. She has been taken from her mum prematurely but has gone to someone who obviously cares for her. Spoiling her will do her no harm at all. You will need also to have a lot of patience with a husky pup as they are not the easiest of dogs to train. Good luck and one thing that you need to remember with husky owners is :worthless:

Make sure you stay with your pup at the vets too , n don't worry, when my boy was 8 weeks old him n my staffy were playing n my staffy jumped on him n hurt his leg, n my pup screamed like it had just fell off, he spent the night at the vets , accidents happen , but this doesn't sound like it's down to a hurt tail , hope she's ok

I no i never wanted to leave her in the vets! The women took her into another room n said "lets go and weight you myia" come back and didn't tell me how much she weighed and in the process whilst being away from me was when she screamed in pain !! N i said whats just happened to her n she said i gave her her needle . But she didnt tell me she was going :( ive got a bad feeling about whatever they did to her

Paige, how old is Myiah now? It is common for dogs to run a temperature / be sick / have the runs / stop eating for a short while after an injection, as long as she picks up within 24 hrs. I would definitely search for another reputable vet though, that is not usual practice to treat patients like that. 

 

Most of us spoil our dogs in one way or another, it doesn't make you a bad owner, but it could encourage naughty behaviour that clever huskies will push the boundaries with. As long as you are aware of that & are consistent with any training etc, your "molly coddling" won't harm your puppy  :D

At that age, anything strange will be scary & make her cry, bless her. But definitely look for another vet. Do you have any family nearby that has animals & uses a good vet? Or maybe ask the neighbours? They'll give you an unbiased opinion of their dealings with vets

Puppies taken at 6 weeks tend to lack social and coping skills. Taking her to classes should help. She is probably also in the middle of a fear period and may be a little more easily upset.

LOL yes  :P it's funny now, but back then I was like "eeeek!" 

 

Diamond doesn't make any noises, but one time he poked himself on the ear, screamed and spooked himself  :huh: I don't think anything is wrong with making vocalizations while having the zoomies though... maybe she's just born vocal. Personally, I think vocal huskies are cute. If you train her hard enough, she might be the second Mishka  :lol:

 

but you might want to discourage that jumping on your head thing. It's cute now, but in about 6 months you're gonna have a twenty-five kilograms husky jumping onto your head. Even in the zoomie phase they still listen, and you can always put her back to the ground and say "no".
