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.

Hey everyone!

My male intact husky just turned 4 and he has not put on any size, he currently weighs around 45-47 lbs. He eats orijen dry kibble, 2 cups per day. He looks skinny and gets confused for a puppy many times.


Whenever I try to put only a few pounds on him but increasing his food intake, he will just have constant diarrhea for about a week.

I wanted to know how I can add a few pounds on him without causing him to have diarrhea... could I possibly add some olive oil on top of his kibble or some yogurt. And advice is appreciated thanks!


P.S.- I know huskies are not a large breed and that trying to pack on weight for a dog is unhealthy, but I only want him to gain 2-3 lbs.

I have an Alaskan, mostly Husky but who knows what else, I haven't DNA'd him. probably should just for curiosity sake.  He weighed in at 50 pounds when I got him from the shelter and I did everything under the sun to add another 5 pounds to him ... didn't work.  Like you, if I overfed him he left me soupy messes.  He's been right around 50 pounds at every vet visit, he's healthy and the most stupid happy dog I've had.

Save yourself a lot of grief, just accept him as he is.

Oh, I tried high protein food, nope; canned dog food, nope; various "toppers", nope.  All had the same results and after a while, enough was too much!

Thanks for this post! I think it's time I accept my husky will remain this size and try not to get him to get "bigger".

I always wanted a big dog and always admired big dogs my neighbors had like akitas, GSD, etc. I was hoping he would get bigger as the years went by but instead, he stayed the same size since age 2.

But you're right, the only thing that happens when I try to get him to put on some pounds is a week of shitting inside the house. Need some tips...male husky is too thin.  1625187496
