For issues concerning your pet's health, your first line of defense is your own common sense. As a responsible pet owner, you need to educate yourself in all aspects of your pet's well-being, from diet and nutrition to crate training. Follow your vet's advice concerning innoculations religiously. Be equally diligent with a heartworm preventative and a flea and tick repellant. Lyme disease and heartworm are not things to fool around with.

Since most pets are not considerate enough to get into a box of chocolates or have a seizure during regular office hours, you should also - on the first day you bring your Husky home - POST TWO EMERGENCY NUMBERS BY YOUR PHONE: ONE FOR VET CARE, THE OTHER FOR POISON CONTROL. Then, get acquainted with other help sources. Buy a copy of a wonderful book written by Betsy Brevitz called "Hound Health Handbook." Ms. Brevitz starts with advice for choosing a healthy dog or puppy and goes all the way to issues involving pet health insurance and euthanasia. You - and your pup - will sleep better at night.

In your search for a suitable pet, please, please do not overlook Huskies with special needs. Dogs that are blind or deaf or missing a limb need a little extra help. They don't see themselves as disabled or disadvantaged, and their hearts are just as big as other dogs. They offer a chance for you to do something very special in your life.

Sadly, most of the information on the Internet is put there by someone trying to sell something. Your best source of information on nutrition is always your own common sense.
