  1. Thanks for the time spent researching this, it is sincerely appreciated. Between us and our Vet we have Googled all avenues. We had Een on long term antibiotics, with no effect. Right now he is completely off dog food, no gluten. The condition seems to have improved, but it is back. if we put him on Prednisone, the condition heals fast, but he becomes lethargic, drinks a lot of water and cannot control his urine. Those are unfortunately side effects. The raw diet may be an option, I would have to research how to prepare that. Thanks I am in North Carolina. Appreciate it if you could PM me his contact details.
  2. He is on zinc supplements, three tablets of Zinpro a day, made no difference. This has been going on for about 6 months now.
  3. No similar experience anyone? No replies, does that mean I am the only one with a Husky getting raw skin above and on the sides of his eyes? Picture attached below shows the problem is back, so I will have to put him back on the steroid resulting in urine problems and a loss of energy.
  4. Thanks for replying. If you Google “Husky eye problems” the pictures show exactly what my boy has. I unfortunately don’t have pictures as we had him healed with the steroid, but took him off due to the side effects. It seems to be coming back, just starting, so a picture now won’t show the problem. We have tried all the remedies related to Zinc shortage researched by both us and the Vet with no success. This started while we were renting a house, while building new. During the year it took he only went out with me to walk and potty, so he could not have gotten into something. We thought it was due to all the time he spent inside the house and it would clear up once we were on our new acreage where he could roam free. Unfortunately this is not the case, it looks like it is just starting again. His “sister” a white Lab 11 years is healthy and full of life, same diet, same home.
  5. My Sib is 8 years old and he has developed problems with skin above the eyes getting infected. We have tried everything, kibble, cooked chicken and rice with veggies, sometimes fish and medication. Also Zinpro zinc supplements. He roams free on two acres and can come and go into the house as he wishes through a doggie door. The only thing which helps is the steroid Prednisone, which has side effects. He has been in and out of the Vet several times, with no other solution so far. Any experience or help will be appreciated.
  6. I let Een off leash when we walk in the woods, but he is always with his step-sis, who has excellent recall and she is a Lab-mix. He comes running back as fast as he can though when I call, but I guess only because he knows there is a little snack as a reward each time. I use to train my dogs extremely well, almost as in the video below, but that was a long time ago. Don't have the time now and also became soft. My experience with Een though is that he is very trainable, should I invest in the time and effort to do it. sfLu5TGPvOc
