Default Does this sound normal to you?

Ok i know Huskies are vocal and i know Chinooks can be too but I have never heard one of my dogs ever make this noise before. I was ok in the barn during evening feed and i heard this weird gurgly/howly/yelp kinda noise coming from Stinker. I automatically thought the worst and fetl around on him and looked down his throat the best i can and in his mouth but i saw nothing wrong and he was looking at me like are you crazy mum? We did'nt run our normal two hour runs today do to Babes Vet check so im not sure whats going on. He seems fine now acting completely normal eating and drinking fine. I called my dad about it since he like me grew up around huskies and then brought about his out training ranch as well and has heard plenty of strange Husky vocalizations. He said he could'nt tell me unless he heard it himself but thinks im just being paranoid and if he's fine to hold off calling the vet until tomarow morning. Im thinking he's probley fine it was just weird but of course Stinker has given me plenty of bizzar firsts which i have ran him to the vet for and leacing with them saying he's fine so who knows. If you have any idea let me know.

I don't know what to think about that. I've heard dogs make all kinds of weird noises. Maybe she was trying to get your attention. I know that maverick makes the funniest whooping noise when he snores but that's normal for him. I guess you should just keep an eye on him. He's probably alright.

I had a Doberman named Joe who would make this "Errrrr...OW!" noise when he thought he was doing something especially clever. It had nothing to do with me or anyone else, it was more of a "Eureka!" sort of exclamation. Point being, your pooch may just have been talking to himself. You might try writing to a breed club and ask around there. I'd go to the vet tomorrow anyway, but I'm a worry-wart.

thanks both of you from what you say creatureteacher about the soudn your dog used to make sounds pretty similar to what Stinker was doing lol. I don't know he's a mighty weird dog lol. I've got a payment plan set up with my vet so if i do have to bring him to the vet tomarow I will and not have to worry to much about it as much as i used to which would be nice.

You must have a great vet then! My vet has a giant sign that says everything must be paid in full at the end of the visit and they aren't accepting cheques anymore.

Of course, this town is going broke so there are probably a lot more dishonest folks about (or just people who can't pay). Either way it's great that you have that kind of relationship with your vet.

What a wonderful relationship to have with your vet like that. I think that is great!

I just had to switch vets. Get this; my cat had bladder crystals and a urethra blockage. He spent 5 days in emergency care. Of course, by the end of it I was a total wreck worrying about him. I went and visited him twice a day, which I hope made him feel better, but I felt even worse seeing him all shaved and drugged and full of tubes. Then, when he was finally ready to go home, the vet told me, "Okay, that's $750." I told him I could pay him $400 now, but he'd have to wait until next month to get the rest. He told me to use a credit card (which now that I'm thinking about it, was a very rude answer) and I told him I don't have a credit card, and he was just going to have to wait. He threw this huge fit and started talking about calling his lawyer and garnishing my wages. And I thought, well come on, who does have $750 in pocket change? I finally had to call my grandmother and borrow $300, because he wasn't going to give my cat back!!

So now I drive 3 hours for non-emergency vet treatment. When you find a vet who's knowledgable and hasn't completely lost all sense of human decency, you have to stick with him!

Wow, Emma. That's horrible. I can't believe he wouldn't give your cat back. I also live in an area with few vets. Two in this town. I've only been to one so far and I think I'm going to try the second one next time I go. I hope your new vet is better!

Ok I called my vets office to ask him if this all sounded seriouse enough to bring Stinker in. And since Stinker hasent made that sound since yesterday evening he told me it was probley just Stinker being vocal but if it seemed to irritate him or seem painful to him then bring him in. and as long as he's eating and drinking it should'nt be a problem. So that kind of saved me a vet trip and stopped me from being paranoid.
