  1. It's all a matter of trial and error and what is right for your husky. People scoff and say "you shouldn't feed that to your husky" or "you should feed them this". I say you should feed them whatever they are happy eating. My pack are so fussy it's unreal and it's taken me forever to work out what they are totally happy with. I even went through a period when all they would touch was Wagg and that stuff is terrible but cheap. They now have, Natures Menu free flow Chicken, one 2k bag does 2 days, mixed with a double kibble from completely different ends of the spectrum. One bag is Acana Prairie Poultry, £48, and the other is Wagg chicken, £10, and we mix them both together in a separate sealed tub. Combined chicken and kibble weight is around 300g per dog per day. Costs me around £140 per month for the whole pack. My guys also race at weekends throughout the winter which builds their muscle density. Keep experimenting and you'll find what's right for Kai.
  2. Thanks Rob. I'm a little bit loathe to do that at the moment as it will just cause more friction. Going down the "nice" route at the moment. I f that fails then I'll be killing it all. had thought about a flame thrower though! WHAT DO YOU THINK??? 😂
  3. Ok guys, the verdict is that it's something she's eaten. Namely the ivy that keeps growing through the fence from next door. Had all this last year and it nearly came to blows with her son. They were told by the housing association to get it cleaned up but they seem to think that what they cleaned up last year will also do for this year. They've told the housing association that they have no qualms with me ripping it out and throwing it back over but I don't see why the hell I should clean up their mess. Anyway, Gwynne is on antibiotics and Pro Kolin. Total rest and boiled chicken and rice so good news that it's not to bad but annoying that if others had kept their house in order it wouldn't have happened in the first place. 🤬
  4. Thanks Rob. Don’t normally get to concerned with my lot but I am this time.☹️
  5. Currently awaiting vet appointment for Gwynne. Yesterday she refused her Dentastick in the morning, unknown. Since then she has rapidly deteriorated. She has severe diahhrea, is very lethargic which, most of you will know, is certainly not Gwynne. This morning she still has the diahhrea and has started to lose the use of her legs. We originally thought it might have been sunstroke but she hasn't really been in the sun. We have segregated her from the rest of the pack to try to help keep her comfortable. Vet appointment is for 12 noon. 🤞
  6. An update for you all. This little girl had gone downhill again. She hadn't really eaten a great amount since the last post. Nibbles here and there. Back to the vet again. The vet said she had a kidney disease and needed building up and advised a specialist food, Royal Canin Renal, so we got her some high protein food and I ordered the specialist food that was recommended on line. She wolfed the food down but once again it was short lived. The specialist food turned up the following day and she ate again but struggled as it was getting stuck to her mouth. She went through a couple of days and then went downhill again. Back to the vets. This time managed to get to see my vet. Unfortunately the news is not good. Nishka has a rare form of bowel cancer which started in the anal glands and has been given 3 months to live. We are devastated as you could well imagine. She is back home and being treated like a queen. Anything she wants she gets. She has been given painkillers to make her more comfortable and now we just wait for her to let us know it's her time.

  8. It's now official. Lynne and I won't be coming to camp.😞 Can't tell you how gutted we are but I hope you'll all have a fantastic time as normal. Dan has taken the caravan and will be attending his first ever husky camp with his husky, Mowgli. I'm sure you'll all make him feel welcome. Keep the photos coming please, I'll be keeping a close eye on the forum 😂.
  9. I would advise you get as much information on the ownership of a husky as quickly as possible as the rescue are likely to, and should, ask you questions on how you would treat your husky. They are completely different to any other creature you may have owned but are far more rewarding. Good luck and if you need any advice just ask. Welcome to the forum.
  10. Hi Dan, caravan is available if you want it mate.
  11. Anybody have any ideas as to why this might be please?
  12. Absolutely spot on although I would point out they are not totally hopeless. Get an escape proof harness hook up to a mountain bike and enjoy the fun. One thing about huskies............they love to run. I bikejor with mine and love every minute of it as do the dogs.
  13. Hi guys, due to forces beyond our control we are no longer able to go to husky camp. Our caravan cost us £350 and we can't get a refund so, therefore, we have a caravan going begging for the measly sum of £150. I would rather lose some money and give someone a chance of a cheap week at husky camp than give the camp site the benefit of making double the amount. Come on guys there must be someone who wants to go.
  14. I do Bikejoring with my dogs. 😉
  15. Husky Owners now has 74 votes towards this years awards and 28177 as the total number of votes for all time Please come back to www.1award.co.uk and vote again tomorrow.
  16. Have to agree with the others. Show that vet the door asap. Comments like that should not be coming from any vet worth their salt. You have a dire need to socialise her. Ease her in gently though and be aware of her reaction when meeting others. Some pups like to "mouth" as well so something else to be aware of. This action would need to be stopped as well but treated slightly differently. Wonderful choice of dog and enjoy her. If you need anymore help just ask there is a wealth of information on here.
  17. Thankyou for voting. Husky Owners now has 72 votes towards this years awards and 28175 as the total number of votes for all time Please come back to www.1award.co.uk and vote again tomorrow.

    I'll come with you Rob. Wanted to go last year but it didn't happen. 😒
  19. Hi and welcome to HUSKY OWNERS. So sorry to hear about Brewski. It's never easy losing a family member and especially one so young. Thoughts are with you at this difficult time. 😢
  20. A quick update for you all, SHE HAS EATEN. Almost 3 weeks with no food at all 7 weeks with very little. Thanks Mazz think you got it. Pining. One of the pack had been moved out and we think, although you wouldn't believe it if you saw them together, that she was missing her. Brought her back for a visit and little Nishka has eaten. Now we know what the problem is we can fix it. Thanks to everyone for your input.
  21. Hmmmm. Not thought about cat food. What sort Rob?
  22. Both tried Rob. Mush the food and mix it with the kefir she just walks away and the same with wet food. No interest at all.
  23. All been tried. The owner has had huskies for a number of years, as have I, we have never ever come across anything like this before. Absolutely nothing works. She'll take Kefir, which is a probiotic and suggested by me. Owner checked with the vet and vet agreed. Problem is the dog will lick the Kefir away from everything else. Thanks for the input though.
  24. I know what you will all think, from the title, straight away. All huskies go through periods of not eating but they'll not starve themselves. Unfortunately this one seems to be doing just that. All the other dogs are eating and are all fit and healthy. This one will not eat. The owner has tried all types of different foods to try and coax her to eat and she just turns her nose up. She has, very begrudgingly, taken little tiny bits every now and then but nowhere near enough to keep her healthy. She has been checked by the vets and they have said that there is nothing wrong with her, as in blockages or anything that would prevent her getting food down, and she is just being stubborn. I have never in my life seen anything like this. She is almost skin and bone but is full of life. Can anyone please suggest anything that the owner can try to get this little girl to eat before it's to late.
