Vet Care

How often do you go each year to the doctor, eye doctor or dentist for a check-up? Once, twice, none? For your husky, you want one or two visits each year for that normal check-up.

 

When you first adopt a Husky, take him for his first visit within 30 days. This will provide you with a good baseline to measure your future visits against.  Your vet should do the basic physical exam but also put your dog on a heartworm preventative. What is Heartworm? Heartworms are actual worms that live in the blood of a dog and look like spaghetti in the heart. Not a good sign and definitely a death sentence for your Husky if you leave it untreated for a few years.

Required by law in each State, you must have the following annual vaccinations for your Husky:

Each year you should have the following done at your vet's office to ensure your Husky remains in good health

  • Heartworm Test
  • Heartworm Preventative (a must to do)
  • Worming Test for Tape, Wip and Hook worms
  • Lyme's Disease
    • Because of the abundance/over-population of deer, deer ticks seem to be more common as carriers of Lyme's disease. Having this done doesn't hurt your Husky, but can further prevent unexpected health problems.
