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.

One of my husky groups had an unexplained, unexpected abrupt death in an apparently healthy 5 1/2 yr old dog. First vet thought probably a heart attack. After the owner had a long discussion with vet, noting some signs of perhaps air hunger a day or two before, hey very thinks very likely spontaneous pneumothorax. Which, apparently it's more common in Huskies.

Oy, expensive. Which reminds me it's time to get Kye in and have his lungs checked out. If ever there was a dog to have something like this happen to I could imagine it being him with being on the Pred all the time.

Wow. Another husky, h2m2, with pneumothorax. Appears one sided, pictures with shaved chest and chest tube. So far, here's alive. I also remember a while back, another one, survived, had pneumothorax. Did not know this was a thing in Huskies.

It will be interesting to see how this progresses and if they can ever get enough research together to assist in preventing it. Or at least putting together one more test that reputable breeders should do for their dogs.
