  1. Thank you soo much!! Thank you soo much!
  2. Thank you Aris for your kind reply! Are you a breeder by any chance? Yes Josera I believe is only available in Europe. Thank you for informing me that it is a satisfactory dog food. If at all possible, can you please put me in touch with someone in your area who would have more knowledge about this brand and has been using it? Thank you everyone for your gracious responses. May you and your pets stay blessed!
  3. Hi! Hope all of you are well and your dogs are well. Can anyone tell me how good/bad is the "Josera" dog food brand? Also, how does it fair in comparison to Taste of the Wild and Royal Canine? Thank you for taking out the time to go through my post. I hope you have a nice day!
  4. Thank you for your comments. Don't you think the study itself is questionable since it is directed at the breed and moreover I strongly suspect that no effort was made to check the environments that these dogs were raised in or how responsibly they were raised.
  5. Hello everyone! Hope you and your furry friends are well. The following link was shared with me recently and I was told that huskies are one of the most dangerous breeds. http://www.irishexaminer.com/ireland/huskies-among-most-dangerous-dogs-study-shows-191687.html Needless to say, the temperament of mine couldn't be further from the impression being given in this article. Kindly provide your informed opinion on the views expressed in this article. Thank you in advance for your contribution.
  6. Hi everyone! Can anyone please tell me which solution works best for ticks and fleas.... Bravecto, Advantix or Advantage? I have a 7 month female.
  7. Thanks that is very helpful indeed!
  8. Just wondering and hoping... is there anyone else who can ask there vet for Alaska?
  9. Of course not Jo, on the contrary I would actually be very GRATEFUL for the help! Thank you so much for making Alaska your own. Can't express how thankful I am to you. Kindly also ask the vet if Folrex syrup is sufficient since it seems that it is more of a pain reliever and anti-inflammatory. Shouldn't she be getting Vitamin D and calcium as well? Isn't it absolutely necessary to give her that in addition to Folrex? Following is a link with a description of the medicine and photos of the information leaflet: https://m.indiamart.com/proddetail.php?i=9834360248 She has two fractures dear... one in the tibia and one in the pelvis. No never hit by a car, never fell down, no accident ever. She has always gone out with only me, I am the only one she has ever been out with and NEVER without a leash. I have no clue as to what might have caused this. Mother and father have really solid bone, especially the father. Take a look at the following video: 20170301_130027.wmv 20170204_213131.wmv He is the darker one the first one you see in the video. You can see the mother as well... both have absolutely straight legs. Thank you ANGIE, JO and everyone else for your love and concern. All you guys are amazing!

  11. Oh ok... rest and Folrex syrup. Can anyone shed light on how this might have happened? Can anyone kindly show this to their vet and get their opinion? I am very grateful for all the concern and advise. Thank you so much. All you people are great!
  12. Ok... went to the vet today. Luckily the clinic was empty. The day she shooed me off it was horribly crowded. Anyways I got two xrays done. One of the pelvis and one of the right leg. First I am posting pictures of the previous pelvis xray done on 8th August.... As you can clearly see there is a fracture on the right side. Now these are the two xrays I got done today..... The vet''s diagnosis is that the problem is in three places... pelvis (she is saying that it has started to heal), hip joint (she said not enough gap between the bones where the bone attachs to the pelvis it is pressing into the other bone too much), knee joint (the outer front corner part of the upper part of tibia where the bone gets broad just before the knee is also a fracture due to which the ligament is not supporting and so she is twisting her foot outwards when walking). What do you think after looking at the xrays?
  13. Thank you Angie. By the way you talk, tender loving care just drips from your words.... I know you care about her too and want desperately for her to heal and be OK. How could you ever offend anyone with the big beautiful heart you have Yes you are right... she is absolutely gorgeous! She has a dynamite temperament to boot... has never given me any trouble. She is soo eager to please all the time and so intelligent. I just need to repeat an exercise 3 times coupled with a verbal command and that's it... she doesn't need to be showed what she needs to do the 4th time she just does it on command. She understands 'Go' 'Get Busy' 'Go Out' 'Go Inside' 'Pen' 'Water Water Water (drink water)' 'Home' 'Park' 'Sit Down' 'This Side' 'Come'. And I haven't even started training her! Sigh.... she is such a beautiful dog with a dynamite temperament to boot. She is super intelligent and super obedient. She wants everyone to pet her and she loves them back with such enthusiasm they everyone who meets her instantly falls in love with her. They take my number and ask for.her latest pictures and to see her. She lives to give love and be loved. Never have I ever had to bribe her with a treat to do anything... appreciation and love is the only incentive she needs and receives bucket loads from everyone. Sigh... I wish I could say the same for her hind legs. Not fpr any cosmetic or showing sake. Only for her own well being ..............................
  14. I don't know what the vet meant and why she won't do what she said she would after a month i.e. another xray. Alaska (her name) never limps nor has she shown any signs of pain whatsoever yet even after she has been running around full throttle. Vet also said she is not over weight. I guess I will just go to another vet. Good vets are extremely difficult to come by here. Guess will have to ask around more and see what to do. Might just get in touch with some of the most experienced dog keepers here and see what they have to say and if they can refer me to someone. Here are two videos of 25th May. Her birth date is 3rd January. So she was 4 months and 3 weeks/ 19 weeks old when this video was made. Please check and see if you can tell how her legs were at that stage: VID-20170525-WA0008.wmv VID-20170525-WA0009.wmv At this stage I really don't know what's going to happen. I just hope to find a good vet that can hep cure her condition. She has always been running around well. Even in case of a minor hairline does it go like cheese. Could there be a possibility that it was a minor hairline? No... the vet gave no such instructions. She just prescient Ossopan D syrup and said come back after a month.
  15. The vet said the fracture was in the pelvis. Do all puppies have a fracture that heals? If yes then how long does it take to heal?
