My Husky is having a hard time standing and sitting, but once up he walks fine. Going to the vet for his shot once a month, was cured for an infection of sorts but just noticed after a lot of shedding his front side looks very reddish now. 2nd picture is a nose cut he just got...again. If anyone sees something please let me know thanks.

Has he had any blood work done? I don't know what to suggest but I would want at least a full blood work test done on him

If he's stiff also , is he on any medication/pain relief for arthritis? What is his shot for ?

You're right, I did one last year and a urinal test this year, everything was fine so I will go do one ASAP.

Given his age I would definitely get another one done , things at this age can crop up so suddenly , hope he's ok

Hi, we did a blood test and snap dx test all looks Very well. Prescribed him Teva-Fluconazole 200mg for 2-3 weeks for his Mushroom infection. Thanks again!

Yea I'm sure it will. He actualy had this once around 10 years ago. The camera flash is really making it look nice and bright lol.

He used to average his weight around 72lbs. Once he had reached 82lbs. For the last year he's averaged 52lbs. He can eat a pound or 2 of minced meat or chicken in one sitting. It's like he waits for them instead of eating his food..Orijen adult...

Should I increase his intake? This is gonna cost a pound n a leg lol, but worth it.
