Unhappy Husky Sudden Agression

Hi, I own a 2.5 year old Siberian Husky (from a breeder) and a 7 year old Torkie. They have been together since the Husky was brought here as a puppy. All of a sudden, the Husky has become extremely aggressive towards the Torkie, biting him to the point of puncture wound that required a vet visit. She has always playfully chased him, but lately has taken to deliberately blocking his way through rooms and hallways.

I have always fed them separately (the Torkie used to just eat dry food whenever all day long, but I knew not to do that with the Husky) but now the Husky picks up her bowl and carries it or lies down and wraps herself around it, so my first assumption was food issues, even though the Torkie has never, ever eaten her food.

As of today, I took her food away from breakfast (uneaten, guarded) and will offer it to her again later. If she eats it, great, if not, I will take it away again.

Also, she has been a VERY mellow Husky and this behavior has started on the heels of yet another intestinal illness. She was given incorrect meds during the spay process and has suffered intestinal issues ever since, requiring expensive and gross dog food. At first I thought she was just hungry, but she often leaves her food for a full day before she will eat.

The Torkie is now in total fear mode and just hides all day.
