  1. A week is a long time to wait when he’s so up and down, thank goodness he’s eaten, I really hope he’s turning a corner. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  2. It’s heartbreaking reading this, so lord knows how you’re coping, you must be exhausted. I hope the vet can give you some answers and quickly, take care x Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  3. What a handsome trio! Apart from the cost of an extra one, I can’t see how it’d make a difference really, as long as they’ll all get along. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  4. Awww, lovely pics, he looks so chilled, hope his recovery goes well. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  5. If he has no patches, sores etc and he’s normal in himself then don’t give extra zinc as too much causes an imbalance with other nutrients and an adverse reaction. The tell tale signs of ZRD are pink patches, crusty patches, lethargy, loss of appetite and if left unchecked leads to immune related disorders but always check with a vet.

  6. Nutrazinc is a good supplement, some mushers use this for zinc deficiency. It takes a couple of weeks before you see a difference, it works, a friend of mine took her dog to the vets as he developed sores and was lethargic, had diarrhoea, the vet prescribed a cream for the sores and antibiotics etc, it had no effect so the vet prescribed another antibiotic, again no effect. She was really worried about him as he’d lost weight and his skin was a mess and he just wanted to sleep, she bought some Nutrazinc and within a month he was back to normal.

  7. I can’t advise on kibble as I’m a raw feeder, I buy human grade beef, lamb, chicken, fish, offal etc. IMO dogs thrive on raw, I fed kibble until they were 4 months old and then changed to raw, whatever you decide to feed make the change over slowly, add a little of the new into the food you’re feeding now.

  8. The more deficient of zinc a dog is the more health conditions they will experience and one of those is immune system related conditions. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  9. I’d apply some Nutrazinc to the sores, it might help. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  10. [emoji23][emoji23] it’s the same with kids, you prepare and cook a healthy meal and all they want is McDonald’s! You might have to resort to making some cat food burgers and putting his tablet in it. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  11. I’m glad he’s improving, baby steps! Have you tried the fish cooked and wrapping it around his tablets, I had to do it with Luka blue, it was the only thing that worked. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners mobile app
  12. Could the underlying cause be due to zinc deficiency? The more zinc deficient the more problematic the health issues will be. Vets for some reason don’t know enough about ZRD and people have spent hundreds of pounds on test after test to be no wiser as to the cause of their dogs illness. ZRD can cause skin conditions, immune system related illnesses, lesions, digestive problems etc, it has been called The Silent Killer. I hope you find out what’s causing this.

  14. Huskies are classed as medium size, large breeds would be Great Danes etc. When choosing a food look for a grain free, I know the top 3 for husky’s are Orijen, taste of the wild and wellness core, I can’t advise as I’m a raw feeder but I know a few on here feed taste of the wild, it’s a personal choice what you decide to feed.

  15. That’s great, walking her and playing with her will build up trust between you and she’ll start to engage with you. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
