  1. Thank you. I might try that. It seems like I should work towards one meal a day and see how that works for them. I guess I always feel bad that they might only get to eat once.
  2. The reason I still feed them twice a day as adults is that when I don't they throw up otherwise. For some reason, if I feed them "too late" they will consistently throw up before I have a chance to feed them. I have also skipped the meal before when they won't eat, but then one of them inevitably still throws up. It happens more with Tala and Kaia tends to be ok with it. I currently feed them Taste of the Wild Bison mix. I tried I think two other kinds of dry kibble and their poop was always soft. The Taste of the Wild seems to be better for them. When you say a different breakfast what are you thinking of? Just another flavor of kibble or an entirely different type of meal?
  3. My two female huskies are refusing to eat their breakfast in the morning. Their routine hasn't changed and their environment hasn't changed. This started on Saturday after their annual vet visit on Friday. They both get fed in their own bowls inside of their own separate crates. It helps prevent them from eating each other's food. Tala has to eat with her door closed while Kaia does not. I discovered last year that Kaia was creeping into her sister's crate eating her food. While you would think that means I should shut Kaia's door she just would flat out never eat her food while Tala doesn't care one way or the other. Come to present day and they won't eat breakfast. They have no loss of energy, regular poops, and aren't throwing up. I do eventually get them to eat their breakfast and when it's time to feed them at night they eat normally with no issues. I've tried just leaving them to their own devices for awhile, but they just lay down and won't eat when I do that. Has anyone experienced this?
  4. What’s that one on the far left that looks like an orange? Do you have a brand or name for what it’s called?
  5. I have two five-year-old female huskies that are sisters from the same litter. With the current situation they're with me all day, but they seem to be getting into mischief more than usual. Aside from going for walks they're indoors with me all day and they're being destructive even with me right in the next room. I'm searching for anything I can buy online (my state isn't currently open to purchase much in store) that would be an indestructible toy or something that would really engage their brains. They are big chewers so I haven't found that rubber toys work well for more than a couple of days at best as they just enjoy chewing them. I currently have Benebones which they love and occasionally the deer antlers. However, I find they "argue" over the antlers even when they're identical so I limit those for them. I also steer clear of treats like peanut butter because I found that it really upsets their tummies so they do not get people food of any kind. Pet stores I have near me are Pet Supplies Plus, Petsmart, and Petco. I'd appreciate any help you guys can offer (New Englander here so don't be offended by my use of the term "you guys" as it encompasses all the people ).

  6. I'm not sure either actually. I know of people who feed theirs dogs once a day with no issues so I can't figure out what about my situation is so different. What does their raw food diet consist of if I may ask?
  7. Yeah, I was considering hypoallergenic food too. I really am glad to hear that switching the food to something more sensitive seemed to work right away. I don't want my dogs to be uncomfortable so this should really help.
  8. Good point! I'll keep that in mind as well.
  9. Yes, they are up to date on their worming although that did cross my mind. Part of the reason the vet suggested feeding three times a day is because of the length of time between meals. However, with the brand of food it's possible that it just doesn't have nutritional substance keeping them full either. I definitely think a switch to something grain free is needed. I'm glad to know I'm not the only husky owner that faces some of these problems! I think I'm going to try Taste of the Wild to see if there is any marked difference.
  10. Oh, that's awesome. Thanks for answering so quickly! I'll check it out and hopefully see improvements.
  11. I'm really glad to hear that while it is more expensive you are using less of it. I never really wanted to use the Purina to begin with, but the cost has been my whole concern. Have you found that your dog's stools have been consistent on the food you currently use? I want to slowly switch over to the new food and hopefully see a positive change for both of my girls.
  12. ProI have two female huskies that are two years old. They're sisters from the same litter and I feed them Purina Beyond Naturals dry dog food (chicken and rice formula). They are fed 1 3/4 cup of food twice a day. One of them throws up on a regular basis and when I asked the vet about it she said to feed them three times a day. Unfortunately, both myself and husband work during the day so that's not entirely possible to do that. I'm sure I'm not the only husky owner that faces this issue of working and not being able to do something like this, but I need a solution. She has plenty of energy, lots of water, and exercise. Issue number two is that no matter what, both dogs have soft stools. They frequently get diarrhea and we do NOT feed them anything but their dog food. They don't even get dog treats. Their tummies seem to be the most sensitive of any dog I've ever had. They only "treats" they have are benebones, but they've had those since they were little puppies. Does anyone else face this problem? I've been wanting to switch to a higher brand dog food, but they go through it so quickly it can get expensive.
