  2. See your pics very well so what is the problem...and I am also using an iPad and never have a problem...
  3. I have 3 cats and one 9 month old husky. I had the cats before the dog so when he came (Buddy)he was eight weeks old and he was raised around the cats. The two oldest cats he doesn’t mess with them. One day he got too close and he got scratched ever since then he stays away. The smallest cat plays with him and they chase each other around playfully. All four of my pets get along they can walk right by the dog and he doesn’t do anything at all. I was worried about getting a dog when I had the cats but I think because he was so young when we introduced him to the cats he was more adaptable. So far I can have all of them together and no problems at all. I can even feed them near each other. But of course if the cat don’t finish the food he would. We do have another puppy Nextdoor (my daughters dog) that was the same age different breed though and they play together a lot rougher so maybe that helps with him not wanting to play rough with the cats. Seems to know the difference. So far so good. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners mobile appI sent pictures but this damn website always messes up with pictures. MOs of them I can’t see. Anyone else have the same problems?? Frustrating makes me want to use another Husky forum. Grr Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  4. some addvice find a small room go sit in it take your tablet or a couple books a flask of tea/coffee have a bowl of water in the room and a bag of dog treats just lay back read book use tablet and ignore the dog every 5 mins toss him a dog treat a couple lumps of his food do that for as long as you can 4 5 hours without a break and no one else coming in to see you him etc just ignore him mostly other than a quiet good boy, want a treat but stay on the bed couch what ever with your book
  5. I do cooked. *my personal opinion and how I did it* Mine have severe food intolerance and my boy has GI issues. I fed them 1/2 their kibble portion for breakfast and dinner and cooked for lunch until their stool went normal. Then I fed them full portion breakfast and cooked lunch and dinner until stool went normal. They are about ready for all meals to be cooked. It has been a two week transition. Since it takes different digestive enzymes to digest kibble, cooked, and raw; I suggest not feeding kibble and cooked/ kibble and raw/ or even cooked and raw together. Need to wait 4 to 6 hours to feed at different times. Make sure you have a good quality pro biotic and enzymes. Also a good omega 3 epa and dha I feed mine seasonal, meaning; Winter- fish (farm raised so it lowers the chances for toxins) Spring- Fowl and somedays fish to mix it up Summer- Grassland (venison, elk, bison, rabbit) and some days fowl Fall- a little of everything, heavier on the fish. I also make sure the % are around: Winter- High protein 30% moderate fat no more then 20% and carbs are no more then 30% Summer- High protein 27% moderate fat no more then 15% and carbs are no more then 24% (my pups will be starting to pull this winter so these % are based off their weight and change of activity level.) Today I am crock potting a whole turkey in just water with a little basil. The organs will be divided up and portioned out for three days. Bones boiled until I can very easily mush them with my fingers and will be dissolved into the broth. The rice will then be cooked in that broth along with veggies. Brown rice, pumpkin, summer squash, and kale. With supplements. It is actually very easy and since the family eats like this anyways, it’s just a matter of a few tweaks (like bone in broth) and using a little more for portion.
  6. My pups had that around the same age. Puppy kissing herpes 🤣 @BlingBlazenSkyla is correct. No biggy. I have a Holistic vet- crushing them will make the immune system kick in faster and it is a shorter recovery. Most vets will put them on antibiotics. Unless one is seriously infected or it is down your pups throat (very rare) antibiotics is not needed. But is contagious to other dogs. It’s common in dogs under a year. *it was the first indicator to my pups not having a strong immune system and they are pretty much intolerant to everything and catch everything.* Untreated it can take up to 4 months to go away. After crushing one large one in each pup, it only took a month. I posted pics and out come in the forum last year when I went through it.

  9. The Kennel Club should be able to help? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  10. We lost our Husky of 14 years in October last year. We had him since he was a pup and he had such a great temperament. We’re no longer in touch with the original breeder but he was KC registered. Our dogs kennel club name was Sliding in The Snow, his father was called Dass’s American Yukon and his mother was Refraction of the Sun. We would love to trace any of his family line to see if he has any generations that are still breeding from either bloodline. Can anyone advise how we could go about this please ? many thanks
  11. https://homegrownherbalist.net/products/consultation - this is a good place to start. He has helped me twice with my epi husky - I have seen some of his presentations - its truly amazing what he has been able to do with dogs. He is also very good at answering emails.
  12. There are also several congenital eyelash conditions that could cause such a condition, but I assume your vet has probably checked for those. In regard to the raw diet, there are lots of folks on this forum who feed raw, and could tell you how to do it. Whatever has been causing the issue, I hope you can find a workable solution for your baby!
  13. Thanks for the time spent researching this, it is sincerely appreciated. Between us and our Vet we have Googled all avenues. We had Een on long term antibiotics, with no effect. Right now he is completely off dog food, no gluten. The condition seems to have improved, but it is back. if we put him on Prednisone, the condition heals fast, but he becomes lethargic, drinks a lot of water and cannot control his urine. Those are unfortunately side effects. The raw diet may be an option, I would have to research how to prepare that. Thanks I am in North Carolina. Appreciate it if you could PM me his contact details.
  14. It could be papilloma virus, very common and nothing to worry about , they are just like mini warts , it is contagious between dogs

  16. Last week
  17. Hello! Emma has started to lose her baby teeth and she has two bumps on each side of her top goal and what it looks like to be on top of the most recent teeth she’s lost. I’ve read online about cancerous bumps but doesn’t seem like the ones I’ve seen online. I have an appointment for the vet in a couple of days but I’m worried. I was hoping someone can shed some light here. Thank you guys in advance

  19. I wanted to buy the K9 III, It's $420 but after reading the information about the product I found a product that is half a price, more powerful and the most important, with a reliable and well known company. X-POWER I have a friend with an air duct company, and he use Xpower for years and years to to dry houses with water damage. so I had to check about this company. As mention above, I noticed that they have some professional pet blowers with much more air flow then the K9. It's made me realize that most people that but K9 it's because groomers recommended it, but for some reason groomers don't really know about hte XPOWER. and that's not good. I just got the blower a week ago and I'm so happy I didn't spend $420 ! By the way, I'm NOT promoting X-POWER because I'm working for them etc..! I'm a single person that want to get good result for what I paid for without spending too much. now I'm sharing my information with you all. DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU BUY ! https://xpower.com/
  20. Have you tried a holistic vet? One that is allopathic and herbally/homeopathy trained? Dont know where you are based - but if in the USA then I would contact Doc Jones - I believe he lives in Idaho - he has helped me on several occasions even though I am in the UK. He both a qualified vet and qualified herbalist.

  22. I don't have any experience with this, so I didn't want to speak out of turn, but when I googled the symptom, I also looked at the websites the pictures were connected to. The two suggestions that came up were periocular dermatitis and canine eyelid disease, also called Blepharitis. Periocular dermatitis is typically caused by either a parasite or a food allergy. A lot of huskies do have multiple food allergies, so if you haven't already, maybe try switching to gluten-free or a raw diet. Also have the vet check for a parasitic cause. Blepharitis is caused by a staph or strep infection, and can easily be treated with at least a three week course of antibiotics (Cephelaxan). I hope these suggestions help get your sweet boy some relief!
  23. My beautiful boy Oscar , a husky/kelpie had never been around sheep my partner got 5 after I told him not to get sheep as Oscar would chase them , he had trouble with him wanting to chase them , well one day when we was at work Oscar got into the sheep and maulded one ! Oscar was such a wonderful gentle dog and was the best dog I had ever had , loved people so much , well poor Oscar got shot because of the sheep , so sad his prey instinct kicked in and he could run and fast , so distraught , so never get sheep with a husky it’s a accident waiting to happen and disaster at the end .😢I loved Oscar so much .
  24. Marley has 9 different food allergies so I cannot feed a commercially prepared raw food, I have to feed from scratch. You do not say where you are from, is it the UK? if so then we can recommend some good quality commercial raw food companies until you are ready to make it from scratch (its far cheaper that way). Because of his extreme allergy to soya, he cannot eat any meat that was fed soya when it was alive, so for us that cuts out chicken, duck and turkey - also eggs, commercially raised beef and lamb and especially pork (which was his favourite). He is fed beef and lamb from my butcher - they have their own guaranteed grass-fed and Barley finished beef herds, and totally grass fed lamb flocks. He cannot have any commercially raised (farmed) fish as they are also fed on soya - so only has wild caught fish. The majority of supermarkets sell only farmed fish (had this confirmed by Morrisons) so I have to buy his fish at Fleetwood docks. However all sardines and herrings are wild caught - and these contain every single vitamin and mineral there is. He also gets venison and wild rabbit. When feeding raw food - do not forget the organ meats (treat heart as muscle meat) - organ meats are a dogs 'multi-vitamin tablet' - liver, spleen, pancreas, brain etc. If you live anywhere near an abattoir (and are not squeamish) then this is the best and cheapest way of getting meat and organs, or go to a raw dog food shop - in the UK there are plenty - if not you can order on-line and have it delivered. Marley usually has two different meats and one fish for his dinner, and has half a tin of sardines in spring water for breakfast - purely so we can get his medication into him. Today it is wild rabbit and minced beef with a whole fresh (frozen) herring. However as long as he gets all the vitamins and minerals in say a week - he will do just fine - no need to worry unduly. Just do not stick to one type of meat. Below will show you just what vitamins and minerals are in some of the different meats that Marley gets - and some he used to. Hope it helps. CHICKEN PORK BEEF LAMB EGG SARDINES HERRINGS SALMON A A A A A A B1 B1 B1 B1 B1 B1 B1 B1 B2 B2 B2 B2 B2 B2 B2 B2 B3 B3 B3 B3 B3 B3 B3 B3 B5 B5 B5 B5 B5 B5 B5 B5 B6 B6 B6 B6 B6 B6 B6 B6 B9 B9 B9 B9 B9 B9 B9 B12 B12 B12 B12 B12 B12 B12 B12 C C C LIVER KIDNEY D D D D E E E K K K CALCIUM CALCIUM CALCIUM CALCIUM CALCIUM CALCIUM CALCIUM CALCIUM COPPER COPPER COPPER COPPER COPPER COPPER COPPER COPPER IODINE IODINE IODINE IODINE IRON IRON IRON IRON IRON IRON IRON IRON MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MANGANESE MANGANESE MANGANESE MANGANESE MANGANESE MANGANESE MANGANESE MANGANESE PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS POTASSIUM POTASSIUM POTASSIUM POTASSIUM POTASSIUM POTASSIUM POTASSIUM POTASSIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM ZINC ZINC ZINC ZINC ZINC ZINC ZINC ZINC One thing to mention about salmon - they are high up on the fish food chain - i.e. they eat fish from lower down the food chain (like sardines and herrings) - therefore they will absorb any toxins that their prey has ingested - and these toxins are concentrated in the skin of the salmon - 95% of salmon that comes from a raw food shop with be mostly skin - not a good idea to feed this to your furbaby on a regular basis.. Give your pup a variety of meats & fish, and you could include a little raw finely chopped broccolli, cauliflower, etc if you wanted to.
  25. He is on zinc supplements, three tablets of Zinpro a day, made no difference. This has been going on for about 6 months now.
