    Hi everyone! It’s been a few years since I’ve been on so I’ll reintroduce myself. I’m Jennet, I live in Eau Claire, WI with my husband and our 4 Huskies and 2 Cats. Our pack started with Embry, who now will be 9 in October, Zoey turns 8 in 2 weeks, Ares is 6.5 and baby Murdock is 5.5 months. We recently added Murdock to our pack about a month ago now from a rescue in Minnesota. He is originally from Kentucky but was surrendered to a shelter there because his breeder couldn’t sell him do to a birth defect. Murdock is 100% blind and was born without eyes. He’s still a crazy Husky puppy so don’t feel sorry for him, he doesn’t even know he’s blind! In the last few years we picked up urban mushing and sledding. We just do it for fun though, no competing for us 😂 Hopefully Murdock will be able to participate in wheel in the fall, but we’ll see! Hopefully I’ll be able to have more time now that I am only working one job to be on here more often

    Well I've just received the food from a firm called Bella and Duke, it is the starter /trial pack and I ordered it on Wednesday. Looks much much better and healthier than the raw food I was buying from tesco and the ingredient percentages are again much better. Let's see if sky likes it.

    Aren’t vets odd! When I told my vet I was feeding my dog raw food she shook her head a bit and said it wasn’t wise as it can contain worms. When I told her I didn’t think it would because we bought it all at Waitrose she didn’t know what to say [emoji23] Bets actually don’t cover pet nutrition in their training would you believe. All the food they have on their shelves is stuff pushed on them by reps and they seem to swallow the “it’s excellent food blah blah blah” that they’re fed. You can always tell because it’s almost always Hills Science diet or Royal Canin neither of which I’d ever give my dog or cats. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    How much does it matter? To me a dog is better judged on temperament rather than looks. If you’re planning to breed to make money then I’m not interested in helping you, it’s my opinion that that’s not a good reason for choosing a dog. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think they do, especially Ares. They also put up with his shenanigans more then they would a normal dog lol. He’s constantly grooming Murdock and they sleep together all the time. We are very lucky to have him

    Just wondered whether the others look after Murdock more than they would ordinarily. He’s a lucky boy to have found a loving home, and I’m sure you feel lucky to have him in the pack. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    Maybe some vets just think we’re not intelligent enough to do the research necessary to feed our dogs a healthy raw diet. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    Our vets hate us for feeding raw. We waited until they checked ours over told us she's perfectly healthy and bright then said what we fed her and her face changed. Even when we defended it with, she's healthy, it's high grade stuff, yo uve just admitted she's never looked better, she was still hard against it. Almost called us stupid for doing it but ghost would never eat other kibble or stuff they recommend. So raw it was! Never looked back. Ghost isn't keen on beef actually... she's more chicken, turkey and duck. Loves duck!

    I'm lucky as both the vets at my practice feed raw. My vet once even gave me around 8 kilos of beef heart, lungs, pancreas etc as his dog would not eat it - it does not like beef for some reason - Marley does not like venison, whereas Lunar has the discerning appetite of a hungry Lab.

    My vet wasn't keen on t the idea but sky really enjoys the raw. We've been getting them from tesco just to see if she does like them. I've now ordered some online which should arrive today, these ones have bone in as well and I know she'll love that.

    I’m not keen on giving supplements to dogs unless you know there is a deficiency of something. Good quality food should provide all a puppy needs. Check out Dr. Karen Becker, she’s a vet who really knows about dog nutrition. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
