Wow, what a coincidence that I find this post. I guess I'm gonna flip the coin here and go opposite. I took my pup for his 2nd booster shot like 3 days ago, I wasn't very pleased with the vet. First, I asked him if he knew about basenjis and if he had treated some before, he said yes but didn't even look me in the eyes. Then I asked him how often to female B's go in heat (as if I didn't know) he told me all dogs go in heat every 6 months and that some might go once a year but that depends on how close to the poles you are and how the weather behaves… so far I have not found anything to support this idea. And what's worse, I asked him if he knew about fanconi and again he kinda looked away and said yes, I can read people and this guy has heard of fanconi maybe but at the moment couldn't recall if it something a dog or a bird could get.
I also can't understand how you can monitor a dogs heartbeat and breathing after you put a thermometer up his back door and have him standing on a cold table with strangers trying to hold him, he said there was some sort of weird sound on one of his sides, but then he was like "well it might be because he's so nervous". Oh, and he also seems really convinced that even though my dog will be 3 months old tomorrow his other testicle will never descend.
I might take him there again for the second booster, but I'm gonna look for a vet that knows about basenjis and that isn't so reluctant to answer my questions and what not, someone who still loves their job.
