  1. Hi Everyone, Thanks for all the help with the hand biting. Loki is now 9 months old, he has been eating TLC puppy food since we got him. He does well on that, good large stools although a bit loose and he goes usually twice in the morning, once at lunch and once after dinner. I was thinking about keeping him on the TLC dog food but it is expensive (not that that is an issue). I was wondering what everyone thought as to a good dry food to give him, we are not a big fan of the wet food. Thank You in Advance Tom S
  2. Hi all, I am new to this forum but was looking for some advice for my 6-month old husky! He is very playful, enjoys walks and is very strong! However, since he was around 5 months of age, he started to show an arched back. This was accompanied with pretty severe muscle tremors (severity: 9/10). We took him to the vet and, after examinations and blood tests, we were told that his new food may not be suitable for him (we had weaned him onto his new kibble completely the before these symptoms occurred). So we were told to put pup onto a gluten-free diet, which we did and the tremors have reduced drastically but haven’t gone away completely (they’re around a 2/10 now). Our pup’s arched back is still present and I’m not sure what this could be. I’ve been scouring the internet constantly for over a month and I’m still not sure what it could be. The veterinary surgeon thoroughly examined his back numerous times and she could not feel any signs of trauma and/or abnormalities. Our pup isn’t that keen to sit anymore, and it can take him a bit longer to do so, so I’m concerned about what this could be. We have used a harness on him since he was very young to avoid straining his neck. But Reading up about IVDD makes me wonder if this is what it is because the usual age of onset is 3 years. Does anybody have any ideas? I have attached some pictures of what this back arch looks like. Your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you
  3. Hello all! So it’s a long story but I need to change my 8 week old pups diet abruptly. Unfortunately I can’t do it gradually like I wanted. I know abrupt change causes diarrhea. What can I do to help minimize the diarrhea? I’ve heard probiotics help but was wondering if there was anything else I can do. Thanks!
  4. I have a 7 year old male, who i've had for about 4 years. He came from a stressful, lonely living situation and adjust well to living with me and my other dog (he never tears things apart or chews them like he did with his prior owner). However, since I got him, he seems to get tired of dry dog food every couple months. I change it and he is fine for a while. Now, since around Christmas, I struggle to get him to eat every single meal. I've changed his food, Ive put freezedried raw toppings on it, dog gravy, etc. He is excited and eats it right up for a couple of days, then looses interest. Sometimes, he wont even come in the room when i put the food down. Sometimes he will just lay down next to the bowl. He almost always tips the bowl over. When he does eat, he usually doesnt finish the bowl unless i put more topping on it. Ive had it to the vet and there is nothing physically wrong. He gets a good amount of exercise, I play with him a couple times a day and he plays with my other dog everyday too. Ive contacted a trainer, Neither of them have any input on how to resolve this. Any idea would be greatly appreciated. This is very frustrating. Thank you.
  5. hi What is your opinion about this diet? Thanks all for helping❤️
  6. She is a 6 month husky weighing around 34 but sometimes I feel like she looks too thin. What do you guys think?
  7. Hello everyone, I’m new to this forum and would like y’all to meet my husky I adopted. He’s 9 weeks and his name is Wolfie. Very active and sweet boy. (Not at times when he bites though lol) we recently got him check at the vet for his 2nd vaccine. He has some hookworms but I’ve been giving him his 3 day period medicine. Anyway on the the diet part. My vet said that he is underweight. He is 12.5 pounds and needs to gain bit more then that. Please if anyone has any suggestion how to fatten him up. I haven’t tried this but I was thinking to mix his Core wellness puppy formula with a Hard Boild Egg. Please let me know thanks.
  8. We adopted our adorable but super overweight, 7-year-old Mayo 3.5 months ago. She was at a staggering 35 kg (77 lb) at the time, and we were told that wasn't even her heaviest -- the adoption agency saw a 42.8 kg (94 lb) in an old vet record! We put her on a sensible diet (grain-free; treats are rationed and zero table scraps) after and walked her daily. She was eating less but her energy level went up; her weight steadily dropped. Even people at the dog park were commenting on her obvious weight loss. We went back to the vet last week and the vet thinks she's finally reached her healthy size, at 28 kg (61.6 lb)! She'll always have the loose skin around her neck and chest area from being so fat for so long, but we're very proud of what we've all achieved. This was Mayo at 35 kg (77 lb) on her first day home 3.5 months ago: This is Mayo at ~28 kg (61.6 lb) today, at the beach! Here's to a happy and long life, healthy-weight Mayo!
  9. I recently adopted my husky Manuka. Hes currently 10 weeks old and weighs 7kg. His diet at the moment consists of three meals a day. Breakfast- Two Tbsp of farax (rice cereal) with around 1/4 a cup of puppy milk formula and 1/4 of a Weetbix. Lunch- 50g of boiled chicken thigh fillet, 100g of cooked beef mince with grated carrot, turmeric and cinnamon, 50g of cooked brown rice, 1/2 a sardine, and a sprinkle of cheese Dinner- 150g of cooled beef mince with grated carrot, turmeric and cinnamon, 50g of cooked brown rice, 1/2 a sardine, a sprinkle of cheese, and one egg yolk. I’m just wondering if this sounds appropriate for his feedings at this age or if there’s anything you would change? thanks
  10. Hello all. I am a first time dog mom and I recently got a husky puppy. Today he is 7 weeks old. I got him when he was 6 weeks old. I understand that puppies sleep a lot but I feel like he's sleeping too much.. if that is a real thing? Also, I've been having a hard time getting him to eat the food the breeder gave me that he has been eating. I soaked it it water and he still wouldn't eat it. Today, I got some wet food and mixed it in and he ate it! Which was good. He drinks tons of water. He has also been to the vet and had his first sets of shots and been dewormed. I feel like he should be more playful. He will play for a little bit then go into what seems like a very deep sleep. I'm just concerned. Thanks for your help!
  11. Hi, I'm getting really worried i have a female husky who is 13 months old and will hardly eat? I think it's down to me spoiling her and giving her to much choice! I have tried the she will eat when she's hungry for 3 days and she literally ate no more than a handful. She loves her veg like carrots and sweet peppers Brussel sprouts etc! But again keeps only when she feels like eating them. (I had a male husky for 10 years and had no problems with him) she's on barking heads biscuits but again will only eat a little. She isn't ill as she will happily eat a dog chews/bones. I think I'm giving her to much choice and she's become spoilt. I try her with chicken, boiled mince,lambs liver etc and she will eat tiny bits of them she now hates wet dog food! As i said she will happily eat dog chews/bones and is healthy. Sometimes i hear her wake up about 4am and eat all her food in the bowl but then that's very rare she does that. I heard that huskies will only eat as much as they burn off the calories which i don't know if it's true as my last husky i had no eating problems with. Sorry for the long message I'm just getting worried. She's not really thin but she's slim and needs to put some weight on. Thank you for reading this.
  12. ProI have two female huskies that are two years old. They're sisters from the same litter and I feed them Purina Beyond Naturals dry dog food (chicken and rice formula). They are fed 1 3/4 cup of food twice a day. One of them throws up on a regular basis and when I asked the vet about it she said to feed them three times a day. Unfortunately, both myself and husband work during the day so that's not entirely possible to do that. I'm sure I'm not the only husky owner that faces this issue of working and not being able to do something like this, but I need a solution. She has plenty of energy, lots of water, and exercise. Issue number two is that no matter what, both dogs have soft stools. They frequently get diarrhea and we do NOT feed them anything but their dog food. They don't even get dog treats. Their tummies seem to be the most sensitive of any dog I've ever had. They only "treats" they have are benebones, but they've had those since they were little puppies. Does anyone else face this problem? I've been wanting to switch to a higher brand dog food, but they go through it so quickly it can get expensive.
