@elbrant Thanks - that may be the way to go.

@senjisilly Good idea! I checked. Didn't find a hound glove, but I did find lots of other intriguing dog stuff to spend money on. 🙂

Right, I'd never heard of one either, but it's the recommended grooming tool in a couple of my old Basenji guide books. It's not a brush - looks more like an oven mitt with chamois leather on one side and velvet on the other...

Ah, they do exist! I figured that people who show Basenjis would be familiar with this item. Thanks so much for the info - I'll keep searching!

Hi. I've searched the internet for a hound glove made of chamois/leather and/or velvet -- anything but plastic and nylon! I haven't had any luck. Do they still exist? Thanks for any guidance you might have.

Thanks. Yes, if an NSAID is still recommended, once her liver has rested, it seems like we should be able to be more creative with the dosing. Again, our vet might not be the creative type - she still doesn't think the NSAID is the cause for elevated ALT enzyme - but I'll continue to "arm" myself with info! And I'll check the Traumeel and Tramadol links you provided. (You're right, a zonked wild child might be a good thing at times.)

Appreciate it!

Hi. She was on Deramaxx. We haven't tried a pain med like Tramadol yet. She gets a daily dose of hypoallergenic Joint Max with glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM. I'll have to check into HA and Ester C. I'll also check into Metacam. Thanks.

Hi. Me again. Apologies. I know this issue has been discussed but my search through old postings wasn't very successful…

Alternative to NSAIDs? We have a 7.5 year old girl who needs to be taking something (broken leg in 2008, limp, inevitable arthritis), but her liver is paying the price. We have a good vet, but she doesn't think outside the box, if you know what I mean. I hear there's a holistic vet in town that may be worth a visit. But I'd like to know what you basenji experts think first!

10 days off the NSAID and, although there's still the daily backyard basenji 500 when the squirrels dare approach, she's starting to favor the leg more...

I see. Hope you find an answer. I think I'd better start a new thread about alternatives to NSAIDS! Chime in if you and Spencer have any advice.

Thanks. Hope Spencer does better, too. Has he been taking an NSAID?
