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 all. I have a husky age 4month. He has had an upset stomach since we got him at 8weeks old. We have tried different foods and have also been to the vet, but it has not helped. Does anyone else have this problem? Is this common with huskies?

Hi Tony and welcome to our forum.  I'm making the assumption that when you say he has an upset tummy that you're determining that by loose or sloppy stools?

The sad truth of the matter is that while some Huskies seem to have cast iron stomachs, others tend to be allergic to even just the slightest amount of some things. Grains, in particular, often seem to be a culprit and most dog foods are grain based.  Can you comment on what types of food you've tried?  Many vets in the US stock Science Diet and while I personally don't care for it (or the cost), it is a good way to start to get a handle on what your pups allergic to - if it's an allergy to something in his diet. (definition of 'good way' - generally smaller quantities and specific types of food) 

I will note that if you've tried several(my italics) different foods, that might be part of the problem.  Some dogs seem to resent change and switching out dog food too often can cause them to be 'loose'.  It's best to switch slowly - mix a little new into his old food and gradually increase the amount of new food.

If you've tried all of the above, then putting him on a simple rice and chicken diet (use the google function of search here and it will turn up plenty of ideas).  Also, many have found that adding a spoonful of pumpkin (not the pie filling, canned raw pumpkin) to each meal will help relieve an upset tummy and solidify his "output".

Some information I'd want to know is what food was he on prior to you bringing him home, what foods have you tried, how long have you allowed to transition onto these foods, what quantity of food are you feeding and how often.
