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.

Hello everybody, first time posting and a new owner of a husky pup. The pup is always teary eyed and I noticed hair growing right near his eye and he paws at his eyes often , has anybody experienced this with their pup and is it a common thing ? I’d really appreciate some information about this , thanks ????????

I believe it is called Distichiasis. Need to get to vet to verify. It can cause eye infections and other issues depending on how badly they are brushing the eye. Vet should try to redirect the hairs if possible. Or may try to remove them altogether. Could be a bit costly if they do the full hair removal but so will constant eye infections and eventual blindness if it gets too scratched up. I would have it looked at sooner rather than later. As a pup it hasn't had a huge amount of time just yet to cause a ton of damage. It is not something I would say is hugely common. I've not run into it personally before, but I believe there are several differing degrees of it as well. More common in Spaniels than huskies.
