I am curious to see how many other Basenji owners out there have this particular problem with their dogs.
Every winter we have dealt with dry skin and our B- (we're nordic so everyone in the household deals with dry skin during the winter months!). The problem was always compounded by the fact that Rocky would suck up all the hot air from the heat vents by laying directly in front of them as soon as he heard the furnace kick on.
This year, Rocky started flaking and turning red beginning in early September. It has since morphed into a viral infection of the skin (per our vet who we just saw today) in which his skin gets all red, itchy, flakey, etc.
Throughout his life, we have been dealing with skin issues, be it yeast infections on his thighs, dried out skin on his belly from heat vent toasting in winter, and now this. Does anyone else seem to have issues with their dogs and itchy skin? Or is Rocky just a walking disaster who loves to have me fork over enough money for a car payment each month to the vet?
