He is getting enough to eat that he hasn’t lost weight
That in itself is very good news. It can be very difficult to keep weight on a picky, elderly Basenji. Once they really start to lose it, often there is no putting weight back on.
Good luck !
Seeing the post above gave me some comfort, but our red/white female 1yr-8mo has been getting a lot of spots. Is this a cause for concern? Do these look like freckles?
@coloradocolby - No concerns, many Basenjis have these... some more than others and many become more noticable with age
@coloradocolby My girl has freckles... I do, too! No worries. Freckles have rounded borders and are visible, but appear to be "under" the skin.
Not-a-freckle has jagged edges, is usually raised above the skin, feels kind of bumpy (like a scab). When it's "not-a-freckle", get a Vet's opinion.
As Tanza says, definitely not a cause for concern. And what a nice pink tummy!
@elbrant - These are totally normal for Basenjis
If ever my girl has to be shaved, she'd be like a pink spotted lil' piggie !!!
