Advice please - My husband and I are hoping to work with Kipawa so that he can come with us when we go to my husband's rehab center. So, picture a lot of wheelchairs moving around the hospital and possibly depositing germs in various places. Also, in this rehab hospital people are re-learning to use their bowels and bladders - nuff said there.
What is your take on my Kipawa's health in this situation, be it that basenjis lick themselves to clean themselves (think paws being licked)? Humans can pick up some nasty problems in this kind of environment (e.g. e-coli). In this situation, and others, do dogs process germs the same way we do? Would I be putting Kipawa's health at risk?
