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.

Thank you Al and Renee for your explanations. It is all helpful to know even if, in Miya's case, it turns out it's actually not ZRD. Like Jane, I always appreciate how everyone takes the time to research and post when one of our huskies isn't well.

Jane, please let us know how it goes at the vet. Smile

Jane, I feel your pain too much. lol. Sofie has the same issue with her mouth, although I have maintained it's a lack of grease for her. I don't feed as much fat to Sofie as i do Miya. Miya can handle fats far better, Sofie gets loose stools with too much fat, but her mouth gets crusty like Memphis. I suppose it is still an allergy, I just have shrugged it off thinking if I added salmon or fish oil she would be better. For me, I probably need to go to Acana as well, what has put me off is the high fiber in Acana, and well, like I said she doesn't do well with fats, ugh........I have spoken to TOTW, they have reassured me all is good. I do know that TOTW can stain a little in the mouth area, Miya has the stain, but looking at your Miya it looks more red than stain. Having ZRD isn't the end of the world, and I am unsure, but I don't think there is a specific test that you can do prior to the symptoms showing. Please let us know how the vet visit goes.

@Renee these darn shepherds haha it is a pain when they have allergies and especially you dont know the cause!
Hmm that's too bad she doesn't handle fats well, I think the fish formula has 5 fiber instead of six but compared to totw at 3 that is a lot higher fiber. You could always try Acana out..

-UPDATE-

I just got back from the vet, nice place. Anyways, the vet said that he does think it's some sort of infection going on and wants to try putting miya on antibiotics to see if it goes away It does look better since I took the pic. He doesn't think it's zrd but he said if it comes back, they'll do more invasive testing like a scraping to get to the bottom of it. So hopfully it goes away in the anti biotics. Smile Shes up to date on her vaccines now, so thats a good thing also.
I mentioned if it might be the food, and he said not likely but I can try changing it to see, I told him I changed to Acana and he said its one if the best foods out there so that was nice to hear.

Sounds good, J! I think it's better than having to deal with ZRD anyways. Vet didn't have any clue what may have instigated the infection?

Thanks Smile me too, I hope this just clears up in the next week. Noo he didn't really say, all he mentioned was how it can be tricky to pin point a skin infection like this, like how or why it started type of thing.. but in his words lol you get what I'm saying. Without going further with testing, there's not much I can do. Just hope it doesn't come back.

Her mouth seems to be 90% healed and the fur has grown back. Not sure what was causing it still ..but I'm glad that she is healthy and her mouth isn't bothering her anymore Smile
