|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

Our 7 month old boy went from inhaling food to having no interest. On Friday he was normal for breakfast and lunch then showed less interest at dinner, but eventually ate everything.
He stayed at the in-laws Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon while we were at a wedding and apparently ate all of his food, but did not gobble it at once.
Sunday night same story where he eventually ate. Monday I was on furlough and he didn't eat anything until around 4:30 where he ate everything in his bowl. We tried again when he was sniffing around at 8:30 and he ate.
Now Tuesday I'm home sick and he still hasn't eaten. He is drinking fine and acting normal. He happily eats treats and is currently working on a peanut butter filled kong.
We're probably 1/4 the way through a bag of Taste of the Wild Puppy Pacific which has not changed recently.
How concerned should I be and at what point should I take him to the vet?

Sarah, Am I remembering correctly you asked when you can go from 3 times a day to feeding twice? It may be time then to feed twice a day and he may not need quite as much food as you were feeding. Let us know how many times a day and how much you are feeding, just sounds like between his change in routine and just becoming closer to an adult happened at the same time.

He was still gobbling up his food until Friday so we were keeping up with the feeding 1 cup 3x per day. Today we eventually got him to eat by hand feeding then putting the rest in a different plastic bowl. He's been eating since we got him out of a stainless steel bowl.
He's drinking and his poops are normal in consistency, but not in volume.

May be time to cut back on food. I believe most adult huskies here who eat totw ate getting 2 cups a day, max.

Hello, I adopted my 3 year old girl Lucy about 4 months ago from the shelter, and she’s so amazing! Recently, she’s been disinterested in the food we give her. We mix some Kirkland lamb kibble with some half cooked beef (her fav) twice a day and usually she gobbles it up. At first we though she was being picky about the kibble, so we just gave her beef to see if she would eat that but she’s not even eating that now. When dinner comes around she does eventually eat, but only if we hand feed her. We live in NorCal and there has been a crazy temperature spike here, it’s 80s at the lowest - 104 at its worst, and some research I’ve done suggests maybe she’s trying to regulate her metabolism, but we are sure to walk her early on the morning and in the evenings when it’s not crazy hot out, so it’s not from her being inactive. I know that was a lot of text, please help we’re first time husky parents and want to make sure our girl will be okay! Also, any tips on how to get her to eat? She still goes crazy for treats so I’m not sure what’s up.

Hot weather will put them off their food. You feed half cooked beef so, freeze that then, wiz it up in a food processor or blender to make a meat snow cone for her - she may like the ice cold food better. Mine eat raw regularly and, in the hot summer, they often get meat snow cones or, frozen chunks of meat because they eat that better than anything else when it's over 90 outside.
