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.

What are some good/fairly cheap options to use as treats, but offer health benefits? Anything specific to huskies is good, so my two year old male husky has tummy issues and every once in a while will get a couple days worth of diarrhea or a day of two of vomiting for no apparent reason. We have taken him to the vet when this was happening twice and they have found no issues.

We recently started giving him pumpkin a couple times a week as well.

Hey Loki14!

Here's are some options I rotate through:

  • freeze dried liver - great for training and causal treat giving, easy to break apart
  • Dehydrated beef lung - fun alternative to liver
  • Frozen raw lake smelt - Doesn't have a strong fishy smell and is rich in Omega 3s
  • Raw bones (i.e. frozen skinless duck necks) - excellent for dental hygiene if given 2-3 times a week as a meal replacement
  • Biscuits - I only give one after each walk - I use a brand called "Slobbers" made out of Organic Buckwheat Flour, Organic Apples, Organic Carrots, Organic Peanut Butter, Organic Coconut Flour, Organic Blueberries, Baking Soda (Aluminum-Free), Mixed Tocopherols (Natural Preservative)

My husky has a super sensitive stomach too and these have always passed the test.  Everything in moderation of course.  No more than 2 or 3 pieces daily.

Good luck!

Try freezing plain no additive Greek yogurt in ice cube trays or kifer. Does well for dogs with questionable stomacks. Blueberries do well too. Both very healthy.
