    We have dog gates and child gates so when we are out they are restricted to one or two rooms - Marley has always had free reign in the house as he can be trusted with our cat - not so with Mikey so unfortunately Marley's movements are restricted to downstairs when we go out. We started with only giving them access to the kitchen and hallway, then added in the lounge when we felt we could trust Mikey with the furniture (new addition about 6 months ago - he is 3.5 years old - about 6 months younger than Marley).

    Same as Janine says, we do give a command “watch the house” and give a small threat and when we come back we say “watched the house for us” and a small treat then. We also leave the tv or radio on softly in the background...

    Hi, she’s very pretty. If she starts to develop separation anxiety I would start by leaving her for 5 minutes, going out thru the front door, returning 5 mins later, no fuss on leaving and none on your return, do this multiple times in the day and gradually building on the time you leave her. Give her a toy to play with when you’re leaving, I would also restrict access to the rooms in your house, safety gates work well. Destructive behaviour is common with separation anxiety and huskies are experts at chewing and digging. Good luck! Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

    Getting Marley to have the fermented cabbage juice is rather a chore - but he will happiy eat raw cabbage (strange tyke). No further vomitting or runs and he seems happy in himself and eating well (loving the cold) so I am happy with continuing to treat him myself ..................... however Marley & Mikey are curious as to why I rush over to Marley's poos to check them before clearing them away 🤣. Getting him to have the manuka honey is no problem whatsoever though - Mikey also wants some - but I use 10+ for Mikey - he does not need the strength - and I dont need the extra cost. Here's hoping for a drama free Christmas.

    One thing I think I forgot to mention that is one of the best things to give for joint problems is bone broth - sorry if I am teaching granny to suck eggs! Bone broth also contains a slew of other joint-healthy ingredients, like glucosamine and chondroitin as well as calcium, magnesium, phosophorus, silicon and sulfur. This article is for humans - but you can pick out the stuff that is good for dogs and ignore things like onions obviously. https://draxe.com/nutrition/foods-for-your-joints/?utm_source=curated&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20200122_curated_freeshippingplug I used to give Lunar bulls trachea to chew - he enjoyed it and it is almost completely made up of glucosamine & chondroitin.

    Yeah, the vets have now moved her off tramadol to tralieve which is still basically tramadol but its pet medication and more effective apparently so hopefully that helps too once it arrives

    I’m of the same opinion, that puppy shots and first booster are necessary after that I feel, in my opinion, that any other booster shots are unnecessary. There are so many articles around telling us we need this and that for our pets, but i think it’s about financial gain for company’s that sell them and the vets. Pet company’s are well aware of what we’re willing to spend on our beloved fur babies but the majority of it is unnecessary, lots of research is needed before we buy into what they tell us is best.

    I long ago decided that repeat vaccination had no purpose except to enhance the coffers of the vets. Down the years I have read quite a bit on vaccination and revaccination, none of it good. Dr. Karen Becker is an holistic vet in the US. She has written that yearly vaccination is worthless and unnecessary and no longer endorses it in her practice. I have also read articles that pointed to vaccination being the cause of such inflammatory disorders as arthritis in later life, especially if repeated annually and also causative of hip dysplasia in pups, saying that you don’t see pups up to the age of 8 weeks with dysplasia only after their first vaccination. It certainly gave me food for thought and my thought was that I couldn’t see the point. I don’t have the flu jab either. So I will continue not to give my pets boosters, as most of them are likely to be rescue or rehomes I won’t be making the decision for any pups or kittens and I can’t turn the clock back for any that I take in. When you consider just how many dogs and cats have arthritis it makes you wonder why doesn’t it! I think poor food choices are as relevant to pets as people but it wouldn't surprise me to find that repeatedly injecting a pet with a foreign substance is likely to cause harm.

    Thanks everyone soooo much. All good suggestions. Being these dogs are known as pack animals I can totally see her thinking we are her pack.

    So far so good. No more vomiting, no more runs. I was reduced to syringing the cabbage juice into Marley - but he was very good about it and took it with good grace ............... but wanted a lamb's rib treat to follow - his equivalent of a sweetie! He appears to be back to normal but am obviously keeping a close eye on him. Usually the first sign is that he goes off his food so whilst he is eating all his meals I think I can relax again. Just as well - the vet did not ring me back - and I rang them twice. Time to look out for another vet I think ............... unfortunately my current vet is widely regarded as the best one in my county.

    normal looking puppies can take months to decide on a true color at the pups age they are still developing so wouldnt worry until about 6 months next time you take pup in for vacinations get vet to have a quick look if you are really worried

    I feed my 6 month old husky Earthborn. Granted it’s not a raw diet, she does get raw bones to chew on in between meals. The Earthborn Puppy Vantage has been good to my girl through. She has a shiny healthy coat and I’m always getting compliments on how great she looks overall. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    my dogs used to be fed on a dry food, they did lots of soft poops that filled two or three bags had stinky gassy butts bad breath and dirty stained teeth I then switched to raw food diet they have great coats do tiny poops that are like stones and do not smell much, i would guess that they digest 80% of what goes into them on the dry food i would guess most of what went in came back out. the farts do not really smell any more, no stinky breath teeth are clean I got a puppy last year and he has been fed raw from birth and is doing great

    Hi, my husky is 10 months old and I have been feeding him large breed puppy Eukanuba. I chose it for the Omega fats it had (for a nice coat) and other ingredients. I found out later that it's the official brand of the Iditerod. It's pricey so I will most likely phase to Blue Diamond as he reaches the year mark. I have been very happy with it so far.

    I was thinking about this thread today and decided to do some research myself. I stumbled upon a product named Buddy Custard, has anyone heard of it or tried it before? It's not a brand of dog food, rather it's something you can add to your dog's current diet. If your husky is really into that puppy chow you wouldn't even have to bother replacing it and you'd get the nutrition benefits from BC. The ingredients they use are all natural and help ensure that your husky thrives. So it would be a win win situation for both you and your puppy. Plus I looked at their website and they even have research papers backing up what they do, I know you mentioned studies in your original post so I thought you'd like to know that. You should definitely take a look at their website and include them in your list of possibilities.

    I think it's great that you really care about your puppy and have done some research to find out what is the best thing for her. There are so many kinds of dog foods and supplements out there and you're right, a lot of them can be horrible for a dog's health. In fact, there are even lawsuits against some dog food companies because dogs have become sick and even died after eating these chemical laden foods. Not only is it important to consider the ingredients and health benefits of the food, but of course you also have to consider what the puppy likes as far as smell and taste. Have you decided on which foods to try besides the Purina Puppy Chow? Maybe you can stick with that for a little bit longer before you find other options. Or you could try a variety of foods and give her the Puppy Chow occasionally without necessarily removing it entirely. After all I don't think it is bad and if she is happy with it...but if you really want to eliminate it from her diet, we should find a good replacement.

    Updating , she went to the vets yesterday, our vet is VERY happy with how she's walking and picking up her legs , however my animals don't like to make things easy and has a lump on her leg right between her Achilles tendon and her bone, the vet aspirated it with a needle and I got the results back today , luckily it's just a fatty lump but if it gets bigger it might need removing , fingers crossed it doesn't grow Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
