Hello everyone. This is Maya, and she is 1 year and 10 months old. We had planned on using Maya as a breeding female for our small scale kennel we have, but after considering her size and her aversion to the only available stud we currently have we decided to get her spayed. She underwent the operation last Thursday and she has been a nightmare since then. She’s aggressive towards the rest of our dogs, and sits on the sofa screaming every time one of them moves or snaps at them when they walk past her. She has never been afraid of the rest of the pack before, and now acts timid and pees when they come near her, and often times won’t come out of her crate. She got in a fight with our neutered male, and lost. I am afraid of what may happen going forward as we are due to have our first baby in 4 weeks, and she is the smallest husky In our house. The others have been mostly understanding and left her alone, but the tension is beginning to run high among my pack. I’m wondering if anyone else has ever experienced this after a spay, as I certainly never have. I even considered the possibility that she had been in an altercation with another dog during her stay at the vet, but of course they denied that happened. Maya lives with three other husky siblings, who before her spay she got along with very well. Now she cannot he left alone with them. I’m hoping someone has an answer. I do not want to have to rehome her, but I cannot house an aggressive dog. Any answers would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
I adopted a Pure Bread Siberian Husky female puppy. (Miley). She was about 2 months old when i adopted her and now she is almost 1. I am a college student so i'm busy often with school and work, etc. but i for the most part do most of what i need to do from my apartment because when Miley is put into her cage she disturbs my other two roommates. She was never really bad at first when put in her cage, she would howl really loud for a couple minutes then she would stop. About a month ago she started going through heat and every since about a week into heat when put into her cage she howls uncontrollably for hours without stopping. I have finals coming up so i need to be in the library at night but i literally feel chained to my apartment all day every because of the way she recently started acting. I originally didn't want to get her fixed because me and my family wanted to breed her, which is why she isn't currently fixed. But now that i'm in college, the behavior is hard to deal with when i have small errands to run but i literally can't leave. I have heard stories about people getting their dogs fixed and them being an entirely new dog after, behavior wise. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Have any recommendations?
Hey, New to this forum. We are the proud owners of an almost 4 month old sweetheart named Sadie. Long story short she was a cast-off from a backyard breeder and through a long route ended up in our family. We know now that she has an Ectopic Ureter and that this is probably the reason the breeder did not want her. She has been evaluated by a vet and we have a referral to UGA for the surgery. I am fairly certain that her level of issue could be addressed with the laser ablation method. We are currently trying to fundraise for the surgery only, we are paying for everything else out of pocket right now (diapers, UTI test sticks, antibiotics, special food). The surgery will be roughly $3000. I have put her on Wellness puppy food. We give her 1.5 cups twice a day with 1/3 of the turkey/duck Wellness soft food. I chose these two foods because they contain cranberries in them, they are a little lower in protein (so hopefully less stress on the Ureter and kidney affected), although she is not a huge fan of the dry food alone. My other two dogs eat TOTW and Sadie wants that food. She is currently diapered anytime she is inside, when she is outside she is diaper free. We use an all natural shampoo soap bar on her and try to only wash her once a week. We wipe her off many times daily but with plain water or just dry papertowels. We are working on potty training and she seems to be getting it. She asks to go out and will squat and pee, she just also will have had a wet diaper from the pee she cannot help. She is also going poop outside most of the time. She seems to want to keep herself clean and will lick herself when outside and diaper free. We neither discourage or encourage this behavior. Since we are not sure how long it is going to take to raise the money we are just taking things day by day. This is the sweetest puppy, nothing like what I have read about Huskies. She is calm, laid back, loving, very snuggly, and docile. She plays with her toys and chews nothing else. A neighbor of mine adopted/bought her sister from the breeder and they are nothing alike. Sadie weighs 23 pounds to her 30 pounds. These puppies were kept in a fenced yard from which they constantly escaped. I believe Sadie was neglected due to her problem. That will never happen again. Anyone on here ever have experience with ectopic Ureter and laser ablation surgery? Has anyone knoe whether it is successful for females? Is there anything else I can do to help with her Urinary Tract health? Does anyone know of any grant, fundraising, or donations that we can locate to help her get the surgery sooner? Appreciate you all reading my book!!
