  1. Hi there, I am Samantha, coming from Marrickville, Australia, currently a full time mum to two, a boy and a girl, plus our dog Cooper! I love to discuss health, nutrition, parenting, pet topics and to exchange experiences with others, trying to learn from their "mistakes" as much as from my own

  2. Decided to watch 8 Below last night with the family. That movie always gets to me. I could never imagine having to leave my girls alone in the wilderness not knowing if I would make it back for them. I normally don't feel emotional during movies but there are two that really get to me: 8 Below Hachi Does anyone else have any movies that get to them?

  3. There will be people on here that are experienced with young puppies, I changed Marley over to a raw diet at 12 weeks old - I would not be happy about doing it earlier - but in the wild they go onto raw immediately as they are weaned. I personally have a problem with any sort of kibble because of the amount of starch (and other things) but that is purely a personal opinion, - we are all different and we all do what we think is right for our fur babies. Have you tried a wet-food puppy food (tinned)? - I started by scrambling eggs for Marley with a little raw mince, a week late

  4. Hello Everyone, Would like to say thank you for all the support already and I've only been a member for a few hours and I already have a good feeling about this community, so I thought its time I introduce you to my 8 week old puppy Meet Leo Me and the misses got Leo a few days ago he is an 8 week old puppy full of energy and very mischevious with such an amazing personality, Leo was the runt of the litter was the smallest out of his litter mates, he is a tad under weight but I'm sure we will get him up there; currently weighting at 2.7kg. We loved Leo the se

  5. Hi, did you consult your vet? When I had a weight issue with my pup, it turned out that he lacks vitamins and that's not something you want to hear when you think you are doing it all right My dog wasn't that much skinny, he was more lethargic and when I went for consultations, it turned out that lethargy can be fixed with better nutrition and supplements. I felt relieved when vet told me that it's not so serious and that she has no any illness... But she needed more balanced diet, more protein, more vitamins etc.. I switched to natural Ivorycoat dog food and I am still satisfied with it

  7. I could eat that too! My other half always tells the cashiers in the supermarket when the meat is going thru that the dogs eat better than him! My reply is what’s wrong with a pot noodle! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  9. I have had two ' runts' - both made up all their growing as soon as they did not have to compete with food with their litter mates. Just provide good nutrition and sit back and watch their progress with pride.

  10. complete nutrition is the answer - but my experience is that the 'runt' usually gains ground quite quickly and will not stay that way long once he is on proper food as you intend to do.

  13. Thought I would show you what my boys had to eat today: 1/16 teaspoon organic spirulina, One teaspoon Smart Barf (about 16 different herbs to balance out vitamins & minerals) Organic Coconut oil about half a dessertspoon for healthy fats, - Marley also gets passion flower and Skullcap herbs for his epilepsy . The 'mince-looking green thing in the bowl is actually an offal mix containing liver, spleen, pancreas to which I have added the sprilunina, Smart Barf and Marley's medication - The small pieces of meat is actually lamb chop plus bone

  15. I feed taste of the wild kibble since I switched from royal canin the breeder gave us. I'd like to eventually switch to raw because she goes crazy for any raw meat/bones and I personally know it's more suited to their diet (Harlow is currently 1.5 years old). Highly recommended taste of the wild though highest protein with least amount of fillers Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

  18. Hi, I gave kibble until about 16 weeks and changed to raw. Taste of the wild is a good kibble but you can try Leo on scrambled egg as mentioned, cooked white fish, no bones, it’s best to introduce new food slowly so as not to upset his tummy. Lamb is good for weight gain but a little at a time, cooked chicken until older, I introduced raw lamb knuckle bones and raw beef bones at about 6 months, good for when they chew everything in sight and keeps them occupied. Natural instinct is a ready prepared raw food, just needs defrosting, there are many other brands out there if you shop around. My 2

  20. I watched Hachiko once and once only. lol. People kept telling me to watch it saying things like "aww, it's such a lovely film", but all I could think was how terribly sad that poor dog must have been and that just made me feel sad too, so I refused to watch it again. lol.

  21. I have a great butcher that does great deals for me with lamb, beef, chicken, offal and lamb bones, Morrisons sell beef bones, 3 in a pack for £2 on average and the lamb neck fillets range from £1.50-£3 for a pack of 2. I also feed them Natural Instinct raw ready prepared, I mix it around a little but Salmon is their favourite food.

  27. Hello. I think you will do absolutely great as a first dog owner the tips these people have gave you are spot on. I also have just bought a new pup since my last husky girl died 1 year ago at the age of only 2 due to a cluster of seizures bless her. but now I'm raising a new pup and he is amazing never had a husky male before so I'm kind of in the same boat as you. but your apart of a brilliant community here I've only just became a member but to see how helpful people are on here its really good to see. best of luck with your new pooch there an amazing breed
