I'm looking for help from my fellow basenji lovers!
My dog is 4 yrs old. I noticed blood on his stool and actual drip by his rectum. I brought him to vet and he diagnosed Colitis. He said it could have been caused by something he ate, maybe a piece of stick, a piece of bone, etc. We had a course of antibotics and steroids and all was well. I noticed a bit of the same last week, about 2 months after the original episode.
He does seem to be straining sometimes to poop. He will do his business, and then keeps pushing and nothing comes out. He will also drag his bottom on the grass. I have had his anals emptied several times so I don't think that's it. Im wondering if it could be the food I've been feeding him. He's been eating venison and brown rice by Natures Choice.
