Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So my husky Luna escaped the house and she was gone for eight days. We found her and she was really skinny. She is recovering from that and I just weighed her and she weighed 48 lbs. At what weight is she "back to normal"?

according to AKC standards, females are 35-50 pounds. So sounds like she is normal right now.

I think it's better to go by look than by weight. Same way with people. If she looks happy and healthy then she is where she needs to be. Luna maybe above standard for a husky and need to weigh more in order to be healthy. There was a link in a thread a little while ago that had a chart and a lot of great ways to check if your dog is at a healthy weight. http://www.itsahuskything.com/t10648-overweight?highlight=overweight The chart is in the second post. Check out some of the tips others gave and use them on Luna to determine if she LOOKS healthy.
