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.

Its been a month now after we got Kobe neutered and recovered from his kennel cough.

Now there's another issue.

His stool is light brown and is a bit watery, is having hotspots, and is shedding a lot.

WE've been feeding him 2 things:

Blue Wilderness High Protein Grain Free
Pedigree Ground meet(Beef/Chicken)

We stopped giving him the Pedigree to pin point his problem, so right now the Blue Wilderness is still giving him wet stool.

Any suggestions is appreciated.

Which meat base is the Blue, he could have an intolerance to a specific meat. Whatever you do, please don't go back to the Pedigree, I don't remember where you live but they had a recent recall on their kibble, and regardless of the recall, Pedigree is not a high standard kibble to feed.

How much are you feeding him? Try cutting back by a third for a day or 2 and see if stool consistency improves. I always get "pudding poop" when I over feed. With a high protein, high fat food, easy to overfeed.

That is a good question. maybe 3-4 cups of dry food daily spread out in small increments through out the day. He does have pudding poop. When he poops on grass, it sticks.

Amy makes a good point, cut down on his food some and give it a few days, it always takes a few days to see any changes. Chicken tends to be pretty tolerable to most dogs. So try Amy's suggestion first.

I do want to add, could you finish your profile, it's easier to know who we are speaking to, your dogs name, but more importantly we like to know where you are located, if we make a recommendation, we will know if it's suitable for your area.

I have read that some huskies do not do well on blue, because it's too rich, however, following Amy's suggestion first and then see how it goes before switching to yet another food is smart. If he's a low active adult I would not feed more than 3 cups a day, possibly less, all depends on activity level, age, what type of food and current weight.

If Kobe is 60 pounds or less and you are in warmish temps (60 plus F), I would start with 2 cups per day. Monitor his body condition (ie how much rib, tuck-up and waist).

I agree, cut his food to 1 cup morning, 1 cup at night, if not a puppy/ under a yr.

Yes dogs have issues with blue.

Or try a limited ingredient diet, look at natural balance LID
