    Unhealthy Dog Signs

    When your husky is cheerful, playful, maintaining a healthy diet as well as plenty of exercise, it’s not very likely that your husky is unhealthy.

    There are, however, very simple things you can notice about your husky to spot any type of illness symptoms your husky may have.

    Husky’s Coat – The first thing you need to take into consideration is the outer appearance of the coat. The coat is supposed to maintain a soft touch, appear glossy and shiny to the eye.

    Husky Dandruff – If your dog sheds white flakes from its coat, that’s a sign of unhealthy skin.

    Bald Spots – Another sign of unhealthy skin or hair comes from any bald spots you may find. Do a thorough check to make sure your husky doesn’t have any.

    Fleas, Parasites, Ticks & Skin Irritation – Your husky may be unhealthy if it shows any signs of excessive biting, scratching, and irritation of the skin and coat. Check with your veterinarian to obtain skin irritation shampoos and/or flea/parasites treatment products.

    Healthy Eyes – Check your husky’s eyes to make sure they’re in a healthy condition. Paleness and discharge may show signs of unhealthiness.

    Healthy Ears – Check your husky’s ears to ensure the inside skin is pink, clean, and doesn’t contain ticks. Signs of unhealthy ears come from excessive scratching, redness, swelling, excessive brownish or yellowish wax, and bad smell.

    Husky Feces/Extracts – Do an occasional check on your husky’s feces. It should be firm brown colored. The feces shouldn’t contain any black color, runny/watery substance, blood, or rice-like shapes inside the feces.

    Heart Rate – Should be anywhere between 50 to 120, depending on the size. Larger huskies should have slower heart rate.

    Husky Nose – Any unusual thick, bubbly yellow or greenish nasal discharge can be signs of an unhealthy condition.

    Husky Gums – Check your husky’s gums to ensure there are no inflammatory signs. If you spot any red inflamed gums that could be signs of problems which may lead to gingivitis.

    Husky Teeth – Your husky puppy should have 23 teeth (grown huskies 40 teeth) clean, plaque and tarter free.

    Husky Muscles – Make sure your husky doesn’t show any signs of lumps or weird indentations on the muscles.

    Husky Skin – Check the skin to ensure it doesn’t contain lice, ticks, fleas, scabs, white flakes, or red areas.

    Husky Temperature – Should be between 101 and 102.5 degrees Fahrenheit.

      Hi, I’m thinking about getting a Husky. The only problem is that I live in georgia and in the summer it can get quite hot here. Do you think the husky will be happy here?
