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.

I was just talking with my Bishop and he mentioned that huskies are not supposed to be shaved down to the skin. When we adopted Baby, I didn't even think about that. She was shaved down to the skin for her operation... Is this normal with huskies? Is it true that she could get an infection from being shaved down to the skin?

Shaving the belly for a spay is not an issue. The issue with shaving comes when someone completely shaves a husky. Different parts of the body grow different types of hair and in different densities. A complete shave to the skin on the whole body can cause ingrown hairs that will be problematic. That aside, shaving a husky completely, doesn't have to go all the way to the skin, can make it difficult for huskies to regulate their body temperature. Their fur serves to both protect them from cold as much as from heat and they can potentially die of heat stroke if shaved in summer.
