    Hello and welcome to the forum!
  8. OK, so I have done tons of research and I have decided to switch to Purina Pro Plan Focus. The vet recommended it and I had my doubts but it has excellent reviews and they have been around forever.
  9. The thing so far that I have learned is that grain free for most dogs is unnecessary. Very few dogs have an allergy to grains, it is most likely from chicken. So, for me feeding them grain free doesn't have any benefits. Now the choice I have is to wait until more information is known between grain free foods and heart disease, or switch to a food with grains. I have went through countless reviews and Purina Pro Plan seems to be the most reputable dog food companies out there. I am still going to think about it and decide what I am going to do.
  10. I’ve been a husky owner for about 7 years and I’ve never been more confused. The more research I do, I go back and forth. I’ve found multiple sources saying grain free is unnecessary for dogs. The vet agreed and recommended Purina Pro Plan. But then others say vets push that brand because of kick backs they get from Purina. Then others trust taste of the wild and they really don’t know for sure if the food is the cause of the issues. I just want to make sure I’m doing the right thing.
  11. You could go quite a few different ways. What I did is googles Husky Names https://www.mydogsname.com/husky-dog-names/ I just picked Nikko out of the blue, but Yukon and Kodiak I picked after places near Alaska.
  12. I would agree on getting them all fixed soon. My first two were 1 1/2 years old and 9 months old when I got Kodiak who was about 3. Kodiak quickly asserted his dominance and I had some issues there, but I took away all the toys and kept Kodiak on a leash indoors in case of any fights.
  13. Welcome! What a handsome pup!

    Help!

    I would agree to get a second opinion. My vets have always told me what any issue was, or could be.
  15. Oh just wait! This year has been the worst for shedding. All 3 of mine are just a fur explosion!
  16. Welcome to the forum! I was a first time husky puppy owner, so any questions feel free to ask! The hardest thing for me was potty training and getting the food right. They have such sensitive stomachs! Can't wait to see pics!
  17. I am going to check with the vet before just switching them without further research. From what I gathered, its the grain free foods that have peas, lentils, etc as one of the top ingredients. The formula I have mine on have mostly chicken. But I will for sure be doing more research.
  18. A lot of huskies have a very high prey drive, and that small puppy might have seemed to be prey. I am always careful of small dogs around one of mine, Kodiak because I am afraid something like that could happen. I know that had to be very traumatic for all involved, but that little pup should not have been unleashed. I think training would be a good idea, not only for this situation but in general. It will help you know what to do as well in different situations.
  19. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/dog-food-causing-heart-disease-fda-suspects-citing-16-dog-food-brands-under-investigation/ has anyone else read about this? I just learned it and I feed mine taste of the wild which has the 3rd highest number of reported cases. It kinda concerns me to the point where I’m thinking of switching. Anyone have any suggestions to what food to switch to from taste of the wild?
  20. I think it all depends on the dog's activity level, if you are doing it solo, financial, work, space, etc. Personally I have 1 other person to help and I am comfortable with 3 huskies, with one of them low energy. I only have a townhome so I don't have room for a 4th and I can imagine walking being difficult.
