• Has anyone experienced there basenji getting something on its neck that looks like a goiter, Izzy skin on his neck under his chin all of a sudden started hanging like an inch down, didn't feel hard or anything just felt like hanging skin. Vets office said if it doesn't get better bring him in. After about two days it is back to normal. I had never seen anything like it on any dog that I have had. Does anyone have any idea what this could have been. And no I wasn't high on anything , I don't do that stuff. But it is absolutely true. I even took a pic of it.


  • @isabob Would you mind sharing the pic? It could certainly help us to evaluate possible causes.


  • I don't know. Totally off the wall speculation would be an insect bite which swelled quickly, stretching the skin, and it it took a couple of days for the skin to return to its normal state.


  • You were pretty much right DonC, I showed the vets office the picture I had taken and they believed it could very well been a bug bite that had caused the baggy skin. Sorry I haven't downloaded the pic I have really been under the weather. Maybe I will upload the picture sometime in the future.
