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.

This disease is most common in Sibes than any other breed and is fairly rare. It took a skin biopsy to confirm. I use Zinpro and NutraZinc to manage it but it still waxes and wanes with the shedding cycle. Thought I would post here in case someone came across an unknown skin condition in their husky. It can also appear on the hocks and legs.

It's not painful except to look at, it doesn't even cause much itching. Just wanted to share since most vets don't know about it. I had to find it on the internet before my vet would biopsy.

Aww... poor guy. I'm glad it doesn't cause him much pain though. I've heard of that before, but I can't remember where. Thanks for posting and I hope that this might help others as well!

My pup Kodabear was just diagnosed with ZRD, also. I am going to start him on Nutrazinc and he eats TOTW salmon, hopefully I will have good results.

Lordbroll, how is your pup doing, if you still are here on the sight. I noticed this post is from 2010?
