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 !
There is an excellent article in the August 2008 issue of _The Whole Dog Journal _entitled Vaccinations 101 by Lisa Rodier. It is about Dr. Ronald Schultz and his studies on canine vaccines, including his current 5 & 7 year challenge studies on the rabies vaccine being financed by The Rabies Challenge Fund.
I just read this article the other day and it is really well done. I love seeing articles like this and I only wish more of the public would read these and take them to heart.
I cant wait until veterinarians stop pushing yearly or even every three year vaccinations when study after study is showing they last so much longer and how much damage they can actually do. I look forward to the day that conservative vaccine protocols are the norm and people arent pressured into giving vaccinations that arent needed.
