  1. I have no idea sorry - they change so much .................... but he sure is cute !
  2. Welcome to the forum - sorry cannot help with breeders - most of us on here rescue - there are so many needing rehoming because people get a cute puppy without realizingthe challenges of the breed.
  3. Welcome to the forum - how about some pictures of your pups ................ we LOVE pictures!
  4. IT from beginners to advanced
  5. https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/wouldnt-give-dog-new-allergy-drug/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/wouldnt-give-dog-new-allergy-drug/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/allergy-relief-for-dogs-top-ten-remedies/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/atopic-dermatitis-in-dogs-a-holistic-approach/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/natural-solutions-environmental-allergies-in-dogs/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/dog-allergies-quick-fix/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/allergy-relief-for-dogs-top-ten-remedies/ Hope something above will help. My boy just has food allergies so is easier to cope with.
  6. One of my huskies kept vomiting - being extremely fussy with food - would only eat if hand fed bits and pieces. Turned out he had salmonella poisoning, around 100 bleeding stomach ulcers - brought on by food allergies - soya, oats, wheat, rice, carrots, peas, sugar beet, corn & potatoes. He was raw fed - but had commercial treats. I would get an allergy test done (blood test) - but defo a trip to the vet.
  7. Some people have well behaved huskies - I have a lunatic and one that is a little 'reserved'. The lunatic loves everone and everything - including cats, is a nightmare on lead, pulling, jumping up, chasing leaf litter, etc - 4 years old and behaves like a 9 month old, yet he is the most gentle and loving dog I have ever had - the other one is fine on lead, but not to be trusted with small furries, even small fluffy dogs. He is the only dog my cat is terrified of, and my cat has lived with 5 dogs. I can leave food on the coffee table with the lunatic - but nothing is safe with the more reserved one - he is lighting fast - a born thief, great climber, always looking for a weak spot he can take advantage of. You can actually see his thought process, working out what he can do to get what he is after. Living with our huskies is 'interesting' - but never boring - they can make us cross, exasperated, frustrated - make us feel inadequate, they challenge us in every way you can imagine, - they also make us laugh each and every day, and each and every day I thank heaven I was lucky enough to rescue them both. Forget everything you know about other dogs - you are now owned by a husky.
  8. Its gone down to -2C here a few times - and both mine are happy to lay outside on the concrete no matter how many times I try and entice them inside. Once indoors however Mikey stays laying across the back door and Marley goes and lays across the front door ...................... I have living draft excluders 🤣
  9. Yep ......................... you definitely got a husky 🤣
  10. I am female so connot comment directly - however my next door neighbour had bladder cancer 4 years ago - from diagnosis to operation took 3/4 weeks - he was in hopital 5 days - back daily for radiotherapy - weekends off - (refused chemo). Within 3 months he was gardening again. As an ex-nurse I know it all depends on the severity, how early caught, - and how you cope with the radiotherapy - or whatever you choose to have. Personal opinion is that chemo is far more toxic than radiotherapy. No doctor I know would have chemo themselves. I hope all goes well with you and that whatever it is you got it early.
  11. So sorry - Say hello to Lunar for me on the other side.
  12. https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/raw-feeding-primer/?utm_campaign=Content%3A Raw Feeding - Non Buyers - Nov. 1st (M98RKq)&utm_medium=email&variation=A&utm_source=klaviyo&_ke=eyJrbF9lbWFpbCI6ICJjaHJpc3NpZTEyM0BidGludGVybmV0LmNvbSIsICJrbF9jb21wYW55X2lkIjogIkM0WXlWOSJ9 Came across this article today - thought it might be of interest.
  13. Welcome to the forum. Below is a list of the vitamin and mineral content of some raw meats to start you off. 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 Fresh (frozen) sardines and herrings both contain every vitamin & mineral there is - if you also add about 1/16 teaspoon of spirulina or chlorella powder to the daily meal they will also be getting 99% of the trace minerals as well as more vitamins & minerals. This link will give you a list of all the meats containing each vitamin and mineral : http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/raw-diets-for-dogs-getting-enough-vitamins-and-minerals/ This is the second part of the above: Part II Vegetable Sources of Vitamins And Minerals There can be many health benefits to giving your dog vegetables and fruits. Plants contain not just vitamins, but phytonutrients as well. While a dog wouldn’t survive without vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients play a role in helping to prevent or treat disease. So let’s go over phytonutrients first. Phytonutrients Phyto is Greek for plant, and phytonutrients are only in plants, not other foods. Phytonutrients help protect plants from damage, and when our dog eats these plants, he’ll also get protective benefits. Phytonutrients help protect against inflammation and can help prevent a wide range of diseases like cancer, pulmonary and cardiovascular disease and diabetes. There are tens of thousands of phytonutrients in plants, all playing various roles, but here are some of the most important ones … and their vegetable or fruit sources. Carotenoids There are more than 600 carotenoids that all act as antioxidants in the body. This means they fight against free radical damage in the cells and the body. Carotenoids are found in yellow, orange and red colored fruits and vegetables like squash, carrots, papaya, canteloupe. Lycopene This is another powerful antioxidant that can play a role in preventing and slowing cancer. Lycopene gives many vegetables their red color and it’s found in tomatoes, carrots, red cabbage, water melon. Lutein This is another carotenoid and antioxidant that’s known to protect the eyes skin and heart. It’s found in dark leafy greens and in yellow plants, including kale, broccoli, oranges and papaya. Flavonoids Flavonoids or bioflavonoids can regulate cell signaling in the body and they have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. In general, the more colorful the plant food, the higher it is in bioflavonoids. Quercetin and resveratrol are two popular flavonoids found in many fruits and vegetables. Good sources of flavonoids are tree fruits like plums, apples, pears and peaches, and most vegetables, especially red and green ones. Fiber Fruits and vegetables also contain fiber, which serves two purposes. Insoluble fiber bulks up the food and helps it to pass through the colon. And soluble fiber can be a prebiotic, which means it feeds the beneficial bacteria in the gut. If you’re giving probiotics without prebiotics, you may be wasting your money. Legumes like peas and beans are high in fiber but again, they are also high in starch so are best avoided for your dog. Choose veggies like dandelion greens, collard greens, Brussels sprouts, kale, broccoli and cabbage as good fiber sources. Related: How To Waste Money On Your Dog So let’s take a look at the best plant sources of vitamins and minerals. Again, I haven’t included legumes, because they tend to be high in starches, which your dog doesn’t need. Vitamin A Carrots, squash, pumpkin, dandelion greens, kale, spinach, broccoli. Yellow fruits like apricots and peaches. Vitamin B2 Broccoli, spinach, other green leafy vegetables. Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid) Green leafy vegetables, broccoli. Vitamin B9 (Folate) Green leafy vegetables like broccoli, spinach. Vitamin C Cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, kale. Fruits like citrus, berries, currants. Vitamin K Dark leafy greens like cabbage, kale, spinach, broccoli. Calcium Green leafy vegetables. How To Feed Vegetables Dogs’ digestive systems can’t break down the cellulose contained in the cell walls of vegetables very well. You can help him digest his veggies by ether steaming them lightly (which means you’ll lose some nutrients by cooking), or even better, finely chop or puree the raw vegetables for him. Feed organic veggies if you can, to avoid harmful pesticide residues; organic produce also has been found to contain higher levels of antioxidants and is almost 50% lower in toxic heavy metals. When you have digested (no pun intended) the above I can give you more information on balancing the fats in your pup's diet, then give you information on feeding organs - raw feeding is not hard, but you do need to balance out the nutrients. However one thing to bear in mind - the worst raw fed dog is still a hundred times better off than the best fed kibble dog (personal opinion here - others will argue with me). My old dog had the runs for the first three years of his life until I finally managed to get him on a raw diet - one of my current dogs has severe food allergies and would have died if he had been kibble fed (almost did anyway). It is so much easier to cope with dietary issues when you know exactly what is in your dog's food. If you message me with your email address I can send the other information off to you directly. Lovely looking dog by the way
