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.

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.

PostSubject: 12 WEEK OLD PUPPY WITH LOOSE STOOLS   Sun Apr 19, 2015 10:00 pm

My little husky "Charlie" is SO amazing Smile
We got him from a breeder about a week ago. When we got him his coat was not "soft" he has had SMELLY farts and SMELLY poop since we brought him home, now today he has VERY loose stools, and AWFUL farts. He has been on Royal Canin at the breeder, I bought a bag of this not knowing that it was not a great feed for him. I want the best for him and feeding RAW is out of the question for me. Occasionally I will do raw, i have been giving him a raw egg in the morning and his coat has gotten incredibly better, however now its just these awful POOPS AND FARTS!!!! Shocked lol! So question is, I am thinking I need to switch but am having problems choosing the best food for him.. i was thinking about wellness core? OR TOTW ? Any input is GREATLY appreciated i am a TOTAL newbie!!

Scramble the egg - raw egg white interferes with the absorption of...one of the vitamins, just can't remember what at the moment.  (Old Lady Brain Syndrome lol! )

I feed TOTW - am happy with it.  Make sure you are not feeding too much - I did that when we first got him, misunderstanding the feeding guidelines from the shelter and had pudding poop (also, the corn in what the shelter recommended did not sit well with him.)

And I like Fromm which I can get delivered - makes it handy!

As Amy said, the biggest problem that new people have is feeding too much; "But I'm feeding what the bag/vet/neighbor recommends." The bag is almost always too much for a husky, they tend to "self regulate" and feeding two cups (normally the recommendation) is almost always too much! Vets, unless they work with the northern breeds generally follow the bags recommendations - which we've already said are too much. Neighbors, unless they actually own a Husky are worthless - being polite, they generally don't have any idea what they're talking about.

Curmudgeon hat on - and everyone knows what's coming - would you please go fill out a bit more of your profile. It's probably going to start with "Kaitlan" owned by "Charlie" (unless you're one of those real new people who think they own the dog!) Also, your location - if nothing more than a generality (state / province / ???) can be a real help when we're trying to answer a question that might be "area" related.
