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.

HELP PLEASE!!!! Slipped Disc / Crate Rest Empty
PostSubject: HELP PLEASE!!!! Slipped Disc / Crate Rest   HELP PLEASE!!!! Slipped Disc / Crate Rest EmptyMon May 11, 2020 8:39 am

Hello All,

I am new to the team however have had husky's as part of my life for ever. I am in need of assistance regarding our 11-13 year old husky named Misty. She is currently at the Vet awaiting an MRI for potential IDD (intervertebral disc disease) or slipped disc in her back / neck area.
My question to the team is regarding crate rest.

1. Any suggestion on best crate size? How to help her ease into crate rest when she has never been crated? Suggestions on treatment for IDD / slipped disc? Any suggestion or help is greatly welcomed and appreciated.

Thanks to everyone for support.

I have an XL crate for mine. Since you have passed the potty training stage the crate sizing is less important. Making sure that there's no "extra" room is more important when potty training and trying to discourage going in the crate. I would get a roomy crate and set it up in the house now and just start feeding meals in it without closing it. Get her used to standing in it and get used to it being there. I'm not sure if this will be a surgery type situation or just a treat with anti-inflammatory meds and rest. You may also be able to just get away with a fence or pen depending on your dog. I haven't dealt with back issues but have dogs with hip problems and I avoid stairs if we have one with pain issues when going out to potty and they go on leash. Lots of mental stimulation. If your dog is food motivated you may look into puzzle treat toys that she can work on for a bit. The himalayan chews keep my dogs occupied for a while.

Hi Twister II,

Thanks for the information and advise.  We will be looking for the cage today as well as toys so that she has them when she comes home from the vet.  It looks like we are going to try to treat with medication and lots of rest.  We called this morning and for her morning walk she did whimper a little bit in pain.  BTW our husky is white and looks a lot like yours.
Thanks,
Scott

Aw, she does look like my white boy a bit. My white is the one that has the hip issues that sometimes I have to adjust life for a bit. I hope she gets to feeling better soon.

I just started shadow on dasuquin a few days ago for suspected hip issues. So far it seems like its helpful. I have a size large wire crate that the 3 big ones use if needed. Its a little small for shadow but really i got it for squirt.

Hopefully your pup feels better soon. One toy shadow really likes is any type of toy with a knot. He likes to untie them.
