  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Awww, lovely pics, he looks so chilled, hope his recovery goes well. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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
  8. I’d apply some Nutrazinc to the sores, it might help. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  9. [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
  10. 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
  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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
  15. Hi, it could be anxiety or a UTI, vet check for that. I’d keep her off the bed for a week or so, if she does it around the same time I’d take her out to pee, if she can smell it on the bed she’s more likely to do it again. I’d start potty training throughout the day as a reminder as to where she’s supposed to pee, with a reward when she does it. If she has a UTI she will pee when she’s relaxed without her control. Females usually are the boss with other males. Hope you sort it out. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  16. What a beauty, he’s still growing and needs the higher calorie value of puppy food for his development, roughly around 12 months for adult formula. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  17. He always does! Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  18. Huskies are sociable and don’t like to be on their own, it’s part of their make up to work along side us humans, they can rely on our body language to give them guidance, my 2 watched me like a hawk when they were pups and sometimes I don’t have to say anything and they know what to do. Mine come upstairs at night and they both start off on the bed and then one goes down to lie by the front door and the other sleeps at the side of the bed. I was always one of those that said ‘no dogs in the bedrooms’ but soon changed my mind when I realised they just want to be near us and they’re much more se
  19. She will need her ‘safe space’ and as above speak calmly and I wouldn’t push with the affection as this is a trust issue, if she’s looking away she prob doesn’t want it yet, once you’ve built up your relationship with her and she trusts you she will come to you, it just takes time. Have you managed to take her out on walks and how is she when she’s outside? She’s very pretty [emoji1] Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  20. Cai and Luka blue paying tug of war Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners mobile app
  21. Stick to one is best as she’s still young, she should have puppy food as it’s higher in calories for growth and development and then change to adult food at around 12 months of age, some do it earlier but they still need the high calorific value as they’re still growing. I wouldn’t mix the wet and dry as they digest at different rates and it could cause diarrhoea, she should be having about 3-4 meals spread throughout the day and if you’re feeding kibble she’ll need plenty of water. I’ve recently read about what we feed our dogs and how it can affect their behaviour, if dogs are fed on foods
  22. Awww, those cones [emoji33] Have you tried a paw balm? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  24. Sounds as tho it went to plan, bet you can’t wait to have him home. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  25. I’m working on playing in the garden with him, he loves to play, the fireworks are still going off at night, he’s coming to the back door and looking out, he’s only managed to come outside once but it’s a start. Good advice not to instill the fear by comforting, thanks Emma. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
