Yesterday, I stepped out of the truck and left a happy, healthy Basenji sitting on the bed minding his own business. Five minutes later, I returned to a dog who was frantically howling to get out of the truck. So out we went. As soon as his feet hit the dirt, he squatted and began spraying the most watery diarrhea I've ever seen and when he finished straining, there was blood dripping down his backside.
Needless to say, I was extremely alarmed. He needed to get out about three more times within a 30-minute period, each episode followed by blood dripping out his behind. I found out where the nearest vet was and gave them a call. Meanwhile, my poor boy was laying in the back with his ears back panting kind of hard. Vet said cool him down and watch him for about an hour.
So, I cranked up the A/C and watched him. He crashed out after about 15 minutes. Vet said leave him alone and let him rest. Four hours later, my AJ woke up acting like nothing had ever happened. Stools were a little soft, but this morning, normal consistency. Huge sigh of relief. All is well now.
