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.

Hello! My new puppy Rocky just arrived 4 days ago to my new home. He was getting fed a local dry kibble by the breeder. When I took Rocky to the vet, she told me that the brand of Kibble he was being fed by the breeder was of poor quality. She recommended me (I bought it from her) Sportsman pride limited ingredient formula. Guys is this a good kibble for husky puppies? There is another formula by sportsman price called chicken formula for puppies, I wondered why the vet recommended me the limited ingredient formula instead of the puppy formula. The limited ingredient says its also allowed for puppies. which one do you guys think is better for a puppy?

So I´ve been feeding Rocky the formula for 4 days now, but he is having diarreah I believe. Is this normal considering he has to get used to the new kibble? I do have to mention that I didnt bought (because i couldnt find it anywhere) the kibble the breeder was feeding Rocky so I had to abruptly change it to the sportsmans pride one. Thanks guys! Ill really appreciate if you can help me with some suggestions on whats the best kibble for husky puppies.

Typically the primary reason for a Husky pup is that the owner is following the guidelines on the package and generally that's too much for a Husky.  

The best reference for dog food is Dog Food Advisor which gives the Large Breed Puppy a rating of 4 however it gives Premium Puppy Food with Chicken a rating of 5

The vet likely steered you toward limited ingredient because huskies sometimes can have intolerances to some ingredients. Chicken is often one of those ingredients, though I wouldn't worry about cutting chicken out of a dog's diet until you know it has an issue with it. Sportsman is a good food. As Al said, too much food can cause the runs. Back off on how much you feed or feed smaller portions more often depending on your current feeding schedule. It will take a couple weeks for things to settle at least. Rocky is dealing with a lot. New home, new food, new everything. It could be that the food isn't the cause also, it could just be nerves from so much change. So give some time and monitor as you play around with feeding amounts.
