@Rebel - Full blood workup including full Thyroid panel (full panel no just what the normal vet workup that is not a full thyroid panel)... as they say make sure that he is in good health. Also what are you feeding him? How much total are you feeding a day? Also with reducing food, add veggies to his food to fill his belly... green beans are good to use... I use Cauliflower and Broccoli... Note also that low normal is typically too low for Basenjis.
Very Excited Aussie !!!
Couldnt decide whether to put this in this thread, or the other one…
I took Saba and Ochre into the Vet yesterday to collect swabs for Haemolytic Anaemia, and I just sent them off today :D. Now begins the LOOOONG agonising wait for the results to come back, and patience is definately not my strongest point ;).
Then next, I had the forms that I had downloaded, from the OFA site, (thanks Tanza...), to have them both assessed for basic cardiac status and their patella status, and Im pleased to say they both have EXCELLENT patella's and EXCELLENT cardiac assessment. So I have sent my hubby off to the bank to get our Aussie dollars changed over to American Dollars, and then to post them off to the OFA site... Yaaaaaaaaaaaay :D:D.
Then last Friday, I sent off the info I needed to the OFA site, so they will send out the swab so I can get Ochre tested for Fanconi :). Saba is already done... Probably Clear/Normal...
Also I just want to double check this... I can take Ochre's swab myself, cant I ??? I dont need to take her to the Vet, and have them do it ??? i just want to double check this...
Once again a huge Thank You to Kylie from Wazazi Kennels, for breeding these lovely sound hounds !!! Im one proud mumma at the moment :D.
Yes, you can do the swabs yourself, you do not need to take her to the Vet…
And great news on your tests so far.
That is great! Fingers crossed for even more good news to come.
