  1. The silver was a God send. If it wasn’t for that he would have bald spots everywhere. LOL I figured if it was safe to put on his anus, then we have a winner. It obviously works great on wet leaky areas. 🤢 How my boy chewed a hole in his butt I have no idea but it only took three days to get it to stop leaking and itching him with that stuff. No antibiotics pills or anything used. I leashed him to me at night and slept on the couch. Used a choker so every time he moved I would hear the collar. I am a super light sleeper. Maybe put bells on his collar.?. His sister is the one that normally chews HIS stitches and staples though 🤦🏽‍♀️. I also sprayed his shirt or wounds with Bitter Apple. That seemed to work great. He does seem to leave the wounds I leave open alone much better then the ones with all the bandages. Maybe he has an intolerance to the adhesive. Or it is pulling his hair. Last night was the last of all the meds. Now we wait 5 to 7 days to in sure there is no infection in the gut or intestines. I am going to start with the Detox one, then Anti Vaccine, then the gut stuff. 🤞 this helps because these flare ups suck and he (like Marley) is a big baby. 🥰 So heartbreaking when they don’t feel well. and it stresses sissy out too. I really hope he feels better soon.
  2. Man I feel you on this one. My boy had a total GI blow out 10 days ago. I feel your pain.... Have you heard this AdoredBeast.com Unfortunately, you have to wait a week after the last antibiotics before starting this. *I already started my girl and it is amazing * This is what he will be on: I know you are in England and this only ships to US and Canada but, see if your vet (or you) can find something similar. As far as giving the meds. Pill sticks work great. It does. However, not for what Marley has. Neosporin is good for small surface wounds that can stay dry. Only once the wound has closed and there is no leakage (stays dry) can it be put on. This stuff however, is the best I have found for the open nasty one...
  3. This is something that is starting to happen on a regular basis lately for some reason. On this mornings walk we were charged at. (Third time in two weeks-deferent dogs) My girl did exactly what she was supposed to do. Moved behind me and kept up with the foot work. LOL My boy on the other hand went into protective mood and was full on “bring it”. I kept my boy loose so he could block the dog from us (his sister) while we slowly danced to his house. I wasn’t 100% sure we would be able to make it to his house without someone getting bit. Two unsure males sizing each other up was heart stopping.
  4. @wolfpupmy heart goes out to you. I hope the worst is over and he has a smoother recovery. @BingBlaze n Skylathat is the coolest idea ever! I am sure I will be having a need for that sometime in my future.
  5. He is doing great now. Trying to eat his sister’s face at the moment. LOL
  6. ****Gross Pics**** LOL I woke up one morning to my boy eating his chest. I shaved the area, cleaned it, kept it dry, and made him wear a T-shirt. Sissy got to wear one too. Didn’t want her feeling left out. LOL His new nickname is Iron Man. 🥴 Then He was laying on the couch and I got up to get my drink. When I came back 30 seconds later, he chewed a hole in his butt. This one was a vet visit because he needed to be sedated to see how much damage was done. (Be careful of sedating a Husky! There is a certain brand of sedation that has to be used - my boy did not pull out of this well at all)
  7. I think that is perfect. Only because I do the exact same thing. If mine are left in any room alone, they would find something to get into. When no one is home all doors are shut and the kiddy gates block them from the kitchen and living room. It is the piece of mind of them potentially not eating something that could seriously hurt them that out weights everything else. Plus they have more room in the hallway then if they were in their crates and they don’t seem to mind.
  8. Welcome. The itching and stuff could very well be food or environmental intolerances. Don’t put her in a position to allow others to approach her. She is telling you she doesn’t like it. She may never like being around other people or other dogs. If she is being aggressive towards the boyfriend, dump him. LOL dogs know when someone is good or not. My male is protective of me. My girl could care less. I listen and watch his body language. If he is uncomfortable, everyone and everything stays at a distant. However, when mine are acting like butts to just be a butt, I used Pet Corrector. I think I have only had to 3x. Now I just carry it to keep loose dogs from approaching.
  9. Amazing! Thank you for sharing that.
  10. She is so cute. I thought mine would be fluffy and the girl would be a red. LOL They were out digging for frogs in this pic. 🤣
  11. Welcome. OMG adorably! I have know idea about the eyes though.
  12. I read somewhere along time ago that when the whites of the eyes turn different colors, there is meaning (health reason). My pups whites turn red when their allergies are really bad. Usually followed by a couple of days of itching and diarrhea. I would get a second opinion. Maybe it is a side effect from the drops?
  13. I truly don’t believe spaying has anything to do with why she isn’t using the pads now. There is something in the carpet that is causing her to pick it. I used White Vinegar on accident spots. They never did it again. It maybe anxiety then.... 🤔 There are some great YouTube videos on how to help with that. I would put on my shoes and grab my purse then sat on the couch. Walked around with my keys. Pretend to walk out of the house but only for a minute but worked up to driving around the block and then short trips. Never saying anything to them before I left or when I come back in. Every dog is different and has different triggers. Can you pretend to leave but be able to watch what she does? Do you have tile somewhere you can confine her to? Not a bathroom LOL.
  14. My girl had a hard time after spaying too. Plus she has a small bladder. Doing pee pads and house breaking is too confusing. Don’t do both. Put her on a schedule and keep to it for (at least) 3 weeks, no matter how well it is working. Start from the beginning. Walk her out on a leash every hour for 5 minutes. If she potties, high reward and praise and (if it is a fenced yard) let her off leash to play for a few. If you do not have a fenced yard, have her on a long line and play fitch or something fun for a few minutes. If she does not potty, take her back inside ( no reward or praise) and wait 5 minutes then take her back out and try again. Extend the time from every hour to every other hour and so on until you are about every 5 hours. It should take 2 or three days of no accidents before extending the time. I believe females are harder to house break.
  15. I basket muzzled trained my two. ER vet recommended it after our third ER visit for eating stuff. Works great. Now I just carry it and they know. I would recommend a car crate if one fits in your car though. This is how I trained them: Put something yummy smeared on the end, let him lick it without clasping it a few times. Once he is comfortable with it, then clasp it for just a few at a time. Then I picked a command (sound) that was only used for no chew, showed the muzzle, if they continued then I would muzzle. Only keeping it on until they stopped showing interest in the object. I think they were 6 months here. Had to muzzle on walks because they scooped everything up; glass, plastic, batteries, you name it they ate it. 🤣
  16. It can take up to 3 weeks for a dog to adjust to new smells and sounds. If it was a stressful move and the new routine was not introduced correctly this is going to be hard on everyone. Huskies do not do well with change. Leash walking them in their yard until they settle down works for some. Put a garden fence about two feet away from the normal fence to keep them off it. Take them for lots and lots of walks around the neighborhood to get them used to the smells. I have the opposite issue. I share a fence line with 4 yards that all have dogs. Mine do not react to the neighbor dogs, but they try to get through the fence at mine. 😖 But mine love to do zoomies and sing at 4 AM. LOL Most of my neighbors work graves. So no one cares at that time. Yelling or punishing them will make it worse. Do you leave them out while at work or is it just whenever they are out? Do they do it inside the house? And I would not add anything new to this situation, it could make the stress worse. Plus, most of the stuff on the market don’t work
  17. Welcome. Very Cute. I wish I would have started the crate training, leash training, and started a raw diet from the start. Leash training can be done in the house until they are fully vaccinated. Lot and lots of praise, love, and attention.
  18. I use essential oil spray and herbal collar for dogs for fly and tick when camping or hiking. Seems to work great.
  19. O how fun for them. I miss mine being that age and playing. Less damage. LOL Now at 63 lbs and 58 lbs, when they jump on the couch at the same time they flip the couch. 😂🤣
  20. Welcome. First dog ever and it’s a Sibe... You are in for a lot of laughs. Please be sure to read the post under Behavior/Training. She is cute. Take lots of pictures. They grow up fast and change a lot.
  21. He is gorgeous 🤗🥰❣️ Mine find frogs very tasty. 🤢 The vet said a no frog diet for awhile. LOL 🤣 They ate a lot of them and got sick. Had to have been about 20 and got Giardia from it.
