Binti is now coming to the 5 month old mark and I am wondering if you have any suggestions as to the best time to spay her. Are Basenji's different from other breeds in this regard and are they sensitive to any of the anesthesia (sp?) vets use? Also, she has a herniated belly button. The vet checked it when I was in getting shots and said there are no intestines going in or out of it. Apparently it is a safe hernia!:p Do you recommend getting this fixed when she is spayed?
I have sent away for the Fanconi test and am waiting for it's arrival. Should I wait to get the results before I have her spayed? If she has Fanconi, would the vet treat the spay any differently?
Also, just an aside, do any of you who breed know if her length/height ratio will remain the same as she grows older–---she is 13&1/2 inches tall and 14&1/2 inches long now. Just curious. I read she is supposed to be square, and it looks as if she's heading into a rectangle!
All this aside, our family has fallen in love with her. She is tons of fun. I will post more photos soon. Thanks.
