  1. You must be slightly relieved, at least you know what it is now. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  2. I'm not qualified to read X-rays, what has the vet advised your best course of treatment will be? Hope she's doing ok. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  3. Fingers crossed everything will be ok. Maybe banks should look at our fur babies having their own accounts! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  4. I used to watch him in the films with Dean Martin when I was younger, the faces he used to pull!!! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  6. Wishing Marley well. It's a terrible worry when our fur babies are sick. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  7. Cai does this when we walk past the pub in town, there's a white female husky there, he tries to drag me there and tries to get out of his harness. I decided to walk him on the next street away from the pub and when we approach the far end of the street the pub is on, but we're crossing over the road to go home he starts again, it's her he wants to get to.

  8. She's gorgeous! Photos can be deceiving, she looks fluffy and chunky rather than overweight. I can't comment on the vets advice but I'd definitely get a second opinion, I hope everything goes well. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  9. Totally agree, it's the only social media app I'm on! (Never off it!) Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  10. It's a worry making sure they're eating enough, it's common around the third week of pregnancy, as long as she's eating something, if she doesn't eat at all for 1-2 days then I'd take her to the vets sooner rather than later. She may just like the puppy food on its own, it's richer in key ingredients and easily digestible, it will also pass on the nutrients to the pups via her milk. Good luck at the vets [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  11. She sounds well loved and cared for. In order for a fractured pelvis to heal without surgery, 6 weeks strict and enforced rest is required, she would have to be carried out to toilet and in a cage where she can move around but no running, the pelvis supports the hind legs. Did the vet recommend this for your fur baby? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  12. Hi, not eating around this time is quite common, your best bet is to visit the vets and they can check willow over and advise you on what to expect and what to feed her in the latter weeks of pregnancy. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  13. It's always difficult to see clearly from photos, a good way of checking her is to feel along her ribs, you shouldn't be able to see them but you should be able to feel them, my vet told me this. From her weight history she's nearly doubled her weight in 2 months, that's quite a big increase in a short time. How much exercise does she have? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  14. It is usually genetic and quite common in working dogs, GSD's and collies, are you able to have her hips checked at the vets to eliminate possible future problems, it isn't always connected but sometimes the ball doesn't sit in the hip joint properly. There are lots of weird and wonderful ideas out there to correct this but none proven. I have to agree with others on how she looks weight wise, if she's too heavy it will put unnecessary strain on her joints. There have been instances of puppy's maturing and growing out of this but not all do. Some dogs who are cow hocked look worse when tired or standing on certain surfaces, it can look less obvious on a softer surface, but I would invest in some rugs just to make it easier for her to walk on. Hydrotherapy can help cow hocks, if you're able to access this for her. Good luck [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  15. I have 2 and they eat in the same room but away from each other, we had a few issues when they were younger but none now as Luka stands up for himself now and he loves his food. Sometimes if Cai doesn't fancy it he'd rather eat it than let Luka have it! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
