@antigone said in Self-imposed diet - a large safety pin !:
Dr. Ann Marini who is a Neurologist has a detailed study of the use of medications in Horse Meat
I had read about the tape, but not much proof.. a tape won't do it. But all that isn't basenji related. Horse meat has had issues and research on problems for a good 40 years. I don't know of any animal that people eat or feed to our pets that hasn't had some issues. Horse organs collect wastes humans can't handle. Though you might look up studies. Shutting down horse slaughter seems to have resulted in far more suffering than it helped. But that also isn't basenji related.
As for "records"... other dog breeds (like Pharoah and Ibitzen hounds) claimed their dogs were the egyptian dogs. DNA, not reports, proved those were relatively new breeds. There is no record, however, showing Basenjis are the oldest breed. Right NOW they think the oldest came out of Asia. ("The finding may back up claims by some experts that dogs originated in Asia and migrated with nomadic humans both south to Africa and north to the Arctic") but the experts said they are barely half way through the research. IOW, wait til next year, and then the next it may change again. I'm so old I was around with the "Dogs are wolves" was believed. Now we know that both dogs AND wolves came from ancient wolves that are extinct. The only way i can possibly make this thread-related is to wonder how an affinity for eating things that will kill them is helpful to their survival.
oldest found dog.. so far
As for the dog I listed.. I knew that wasn't your dog. I apologize for not being clear. I was just showing you that your breeder and Damara Bolt are connected and Damara might know how to contact her, or if there are lines related. Of course, if you find your info, things get easier as we have Sally!
Sally I hope you are healing.
Don't push it.
