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 everyone,

So I've been testing different "sample" sizes of food to find out what kind of food Hannah likes. She seems to prefer chicken flavored type of food.

My question is, according to the vet, she's about 8-10 months old. For a husky she looks rather scrawny. She wasn't skin and bone when I found her, but she definitely still has some growing to do.

I know brand wise people have their opinions, but should I keep her on puppy food for now till a year? Or should I just switch over to adult food. I've been looking at the BBW stuff because it's readily available here at our Petsmart.


Thanks!

I would keep her on puppy food or all stages food until she's a year at least. Puppy food will probably help her gain weight quicker.

I really like the BB Wilderness. I use the Salmon, but the puppy one is chicken (there is an adult chicken as well I think) Balon loves it and its the only food I found that keeps his stools firm.

Thanks for the tips! I'll pick up a 15lb bag probably this weekend to test her out on it.
