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.

Hi guys! I am a fist time pet owner, and have a siberian husky pup who is almost 3 months of age... I am feeding him Purina Pro Plan optistart (medium) for two months now... He hasnt stopped shedding and recently (past 7 days) i have noticed that he is hungry all the time and cries when sees something edible in my hands... Secondly i doubt that he has lost weight too as i can feel his ribs easily now... What should i do?

The fact i think he needs de-worming is because he eats everything thats on the floor... Tissue, cardboard papers, even dead flies...

How many calories is he getting?
I found the feeding guide for Optistart but it seems to be metric and I am defunked in metric.
I an not figure out how many kg he should be having.

The standard steps used by veterinarians to determine a dog’s caloric needs (otherwise known as their maintenance energy requirements) are as follows:

   Divide a dog’s body weight in pounds by 2.2 to convert to kilograms (kg)
   Resting Energy Requirement (RER) = 70 (body weight in kg)^0.75
   Maintenance Energy Requirement (MER) = appropriate multiplier x RER

Your MER would be 3 for growth at less than 4 months.


Also at 3 months has he had all of his shots and vet check ups? Mine was not done until 4 mos so he had dewormers while younger and then several fecal checks until he was 4 mo.

At your puppy's age, his vet should give him a dewormer (they come in tablet form). As for him always being hungry, he's a puppy! He's going through a growth spurt now, so his appetite is going to increase. My husky was always starving until 6 months.. although at 8.5 months he can still eat a tons, he gets fed twice a day, 1 cup AM, 1 cup PM... but until the age of 7 months, I was feeding him 3 times a day...

We call Mako (our puppy) the Roomba because he eats everything in sight. I think that's just normal puppy behavior. Also, he eats every meal like its his last. I think Enzo is just being a normal puppy. I would get him dewormed though just in case... they can pick up some weird things from rummaging around.
