Creepy Photo of Shaved Husky Causes Controversy

posted by Claire Scattergood - 

Most vets will tell you that Husky's shouldn't be shaved, unless there's a medical reason.

So this viral photo is definitely concerning for people. We don't know the backstory, but we hope the decision to shave this husky was made my a vet, and for good reason.

In an interview with HuffPost, one veterinarian said a well-groomed husky’s double-layer coat “is like a Thermos in the heat.”

“It will protect them from the heat and sunburn, and in the cold it protects from the cold weather,” Emmy-winning vet Dr. Jeff Werber said  in an email. “However if the coat is unhealthy and is matted or has  some type of skin disease and for medical reasons we need to shave, then it would be advisable.”
