New to the site so have probably broken/misplaced 100 rules within this first sentence but hey thats what newbies do!
We have got one female Siberian Husky called Kim, and one male half Siberian Husky half every male dog in our village because our first decided to go for a wander one day!
Both dogs have differing issues which is stumping vets. The female (Kim) has a bad hind right leg. She can not put it to the ground unless she has 'warmed it up' then she will walk on it fine. The vet took one xray and said there was nothing, took another a view days later and said there was a very small amount of arthritis, however this dog is only 2 years old! Arthritis seems very harsh for a dog this age.
The son (Simba), 6 months old. Is a delight....when he is asleep! Otherwise he chews/eats everything he finds... and I mean everything! He barks throughout the night at specific times, midnight, 3/4am and 7am. Seemingly without explanation because as I go and spy on them the mother is asleep and the Son is barking randomly into the air. I assume boredom for such a young dog. For my wifes benefit because dog loving standards are somewhat different here in Sicily they do sleep outside away from us in a pen. It is a fair size for two dogs but the Houdinis do love an escape attempt!
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Is hind leg problems common in Huskys?
