Hi all.

I'm Jon, I just adopted a 9 month old Husky just over a week and half ago.

She is a beautiful girl, and full of energy...sometimes.

I have an issue in that today she developed diarrhoea, and is not really eating her dry food.working dog from pets at home.

 

We have been giving her a third of a tin of pedigree chum mixed in to make her new food more tasty, but she only eats the tinned food, and leave her dry biscuits.

 

If anyone can help I'd love to hear from you.

 

She is going to become my assistance dog, so she is very important to me and the family. We love her loads and She gives great cuddles, so I'm sad when she is feeling like this.

She could have had something wrong to eat...could also be over feeding...could be a lot of things really ... try her on boiled chicken and rice see if that firms her up...

Would you give your children dried food for most of their meals and expect them to eat it? If you’ve just adopted her she will take time to settle in and you may unwittingly have changed her diet which can upset the gut. Could you not feed at least some raw to encourage her gut bacteria? Kibble varies hugely and most is cheap rubbish full of cereal and not enough protein, a good quality dog food, not Pedigree anything tbh, Aatu, Barking Heads and similar tray or tinned foods would be infinitely better for her.

If you are positive she doesn’t have a blockage. 

Cut back the feeding amount. Treats count in this. If feed too much it will cause diarrhea. 

I just skip dinner and then feed 1/2 amount for breakfast and slowly increase. If stools get loose again then you know how much is too much.

*I never found Chicken and rice to work for mine* Well, Turkey and rice. LOL mine are intolerant to chicken.

Get a good quality Prebiotic/Probiotics/Enzymes. Really helps with sensitive bellies. 

Stress, too much food, bad food, table scraps, and food allergies/intolerance will cause diarrhea.

I've just spent over half an hour replying to your post   -  then lost it just as I was going to post.    If you want to know the best type of food for your furbaby,  and the ones to avoid like the plague you only have to ask   -  its too late to try and recreate it.

hello, i'm a new member and i've owned my siberian husky for 8 months, brought him home as a newborn puppy at 8 weeks old.  about 4 months ago, my husky had diarrhoea and i wasn't sure what caused it.  i figured it could've been caused by potentially by several things but not sure which one.  

until recently, my husky used to put almost anything in his mouth off the ground to eat when we go walking.  he's almost grown completely out of that now, but that could've been one of the causes 4 months ago.  also, it could've been some of the treats i gave him.  either something was wrong with the quality of the treats or else i just gave him too many.

nonetheless, i did some research on the internet on how to treat diarrhoea and believe it or not, the suggestion that worked the best to cure my husky was raw "pumpkin".  yes, raw pumpkin did the trick!  i sliced it up and put in his bowl and he ate it.  a day or two later, he was back to normal and his poop was very solid again.  of course i had to "gradually" return him to his normal dry food mixed with a small amount of wet food by mixing the pumpkin in with his normal food but thank goodness it work!

so i'd suggest that you do a little research on the internet regarding home treatments for puppy diarrhoea, several recommended treatments including pumpkin, boiled rice, chicken broth, et cetera.  pumpkin worked best for my husky, though i also tried a little boiled rice which also helped.  but every dog is different, yours may like the pumpkin or some other recommended treatment.

good luck!

Hi there try a bland diet for a while maybe white rice and boiled chicken , if it goes on longer than a few days i would contact the vet , Huskys are known to be fussy eater , mine is the same would eat anything until 10 months now its just a guessing game ,
