  1. LOL O ya.... My girl is intolerant to grass and some foods. My boy has intolerance to a lot of foods and has seasonal allergies. If everything came out fine, bloodwork etc... bite the bullet and pay for the allergy test. It is the easiest and fastest way. My boy coughs, hacks, and gags a lot. It is from chewing on himself. Bites his hair and it gets caught in his throat. We ended up with a partial blockage because of it. So keep an eye on the chewing if you notice it. Lots of brushing, keep a close eye on food and treats, witch hazel works great to wipe legs, paws, and under belly off after walks and playing on grass. We had to get an air purifier and humidifier. Depending on what is causing it will be what needs to be done. Try holistic/ natural ways to deal with it first. The meds that the vets push have side effects. Mine did not do well with any of them.
  2. He would be a lucky pup to have you.... We have vets here that will do a collection found can for people doing rescues. There is a couple of privately owned pet stores where I have seen donation cans. open an account at a bank for people to do donations. How about local radio stations.
  3. My male is 57lbs and is 15 months. It doesn’t look like he has a waist line in the top pic and he looks good to me in the second. Hard to tell though.... I give mine ice cubes after their meals because they act still hungry. *be careful if you have carpet. Their hair gets on the cubes and ingested. Hairballs can cause blockages. 🤣🤦🏽‍♀️
  4. My pups have had a couple of procedures done. They are fine during surgery, however they do not come out of it well at all. This last one was just a shot (did not tube) and it was a very long and worrying night. I don’t necessarily believe neutering is going to “change” their personality. However, my male was having serious behavioral issues and I pushed to get him done earlier then the vet recommended. After the testosterone levels lowered, all the concerning behaviors went away. He remained very active and still has his boyish personality. I do feel nurturing is a lot healthier for them instead of keeping them intact.
  5. I do cooked. *my personal opinion and how I did it* Mine have severe food intolerance and my boy has GI issues. I fed them 1/2 their kibble portion for breakfast and dinner and cooked for lunch until their stool went normal. Then I fed them full portion breakfast and cooked lunch and dinner until stool went normal. They are about ready for all meals to be cooked. It has been a two week transition. Since it takes different digestive enzymes to digest kibble, cooked, and raw; I suggest not feeding kibble and cooked/ kibble and raw/ or even cooked and raw together. Need to wait 4 to 6 hours to feed at different times. Make sure you have a good quality pro biotic and enzymes. Also a good omega 3 epa and dha I feed mine seasonal, meaning; Winter- fish (farm raised so it lowers the chances for toxins) Spring- Fowl and somedays fish to mix it up Summer- Grassland (venison, elk, bison, rabbit) and some days fowl Fall- a little of everything, heavier on the fish. I also make sure the % are around: Winter- High protein 30% moderate fat no more then 20% and carbs are no more then 30% Summer- High protein 27% moderate fat no more then 15% and carbs are no more then 24% (my pups will be starting to pull this winter so these % are based off their weight and change of activity level.) Today I am crock potting a whole turkey in just water with a little basil. The organs will be divided up and portioned out for three days. Bones boiled until I can very easily mush them with my fingers and will be dissolved into the broth. The rice will then be cooked in that broth along with veggies. Brown rice, pumpkin, summer squash, and kale. With supplements. It is actually very easy and since the family eats like this anyways, it’s just a matter of a few tweaks (like bone in broth) and using a little more for portion.
  6. My pups had that around the same age. Puppy kissing herpes 🤣 @BlingBlazenSkyla is correct. No biggy. I have a Holistic vet- crushing them will make the immune system kick in faster and it is a shorter recovery. Most vets will put them on antibiotics. Unless one is seriously infected or it is down your pups throat (very rare) antibiotics is not needed. But is contagious to other dogs. It’s common in dogs under a year. *it was the first indicator to my pups not having a strong immune system and they are pretty much intolerant to everything and catch everything.* Untreated it can take up to 4 months to go away. After crushing one large one in each pup, it only took a month. I posted pics and out come in the forum last year when I went through it.
  7. Have her Zinc checked. Google Zinc deficiency and see if the systems match. It is common in Huskies from what I understand.
  8. I got my girl at 7 weeks. (With her brother) They are now 15 months. My girl has been stand offish with everyone since the beginning. Her brother is a love bug. It’s just her personality. I have noticed thou, since I have been the one training her she has really started coming out of her shell: with me at least. She started slowly coming up on the couch and setting closer and closer to me. I ignored her so that she wouldn’t get scared off. Then she started sleeping next to me. As long as she thought I didn’t see her. But going slow around her, ignoring her when she was close, and doing training with her has totally worked. Now she demands attention from me and I am the only one she will listen to. LOL It just takes time.
  9. He is very pretty. That is about what I feed mine at that age. 1 cup 3x a day. But my girl got chunky. Hehhee My male is at perfect weight. So I cut her back 3/4 cup and upped her exercise. Hard to tell in the picture if he is over a little. Best way to tell is standing over them while they are standing up. Does he have a waistline? If I feed mine too much they would have lose stool. I would cut them back a little and they would solid back up. Not going up the stairs the same could be for a couple of different reasons.
  10. Think of them like babies. They get overly stimulated and then they can’t settle down. I have two that are 15 months now. I believe they went into their teenage stage starting around 9 months and I was about to lose my mind. (It’s fun LOL) I feel teaching him how to self sooth would be best. It will take a lot of patience at first. I put mine on a strict schedule. They go Daycare three X a week (spread out) On none daycare days they are working obedience (heel, crate, place, leave it, and recall.) We just started duration training now that they are older and added multiple place spots. (Staying in place either setting or lying down for long periods of time). *this is the one that teaches them self soothing* Keep in mind these guys are runners/pullers for long distance. At least what I have found with mine: Play time and running them do not tire them out. I have to be working them mentally. Just even training them to heel with stopping every few feet making the set automatically (on their own and make eye contact with me) for 15 minutes 3x a day makes mine sleep for a few hours. Then adding all the other commands, makes them really wiped out. There are some great YouTube training videos. I personally like Jeff out of Maine SolidK9training. There are a few others I like too. Just make sure you customize it to your dogs personality. Mentally challenging your pup will go a lot further then just play time. Hope this helps, good luck.
  11. I cannot believe they made it to their first Birthday after everything we have been through. Even now they are on poop watch for eating rocks. LOL Wish I had pics of all the outdoors stuff we do but I always have my hands full with the two of them and unable to hold a phone. Hehhee My babies 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰
  12. I make candles, soaps, and work with essential oils. No video games
  13. Please do not shave. It is horrible for them. I would get a new vet. The vet obviously does not know Huskies. Mine have a kiddy pool. I fell it half water half ice. I put it in a shady spot. They love it and are entertained for a long while.
