I've found a relative of Kai's… on this forum!
bellabasenji also has a B from the breeder we are getting Kai from:D
I am sorry to have caught up with this discussion so late. I have not been on the forums for some time. I do think our dogs came from the same "breeder." I love my girl and she was a gift to me from my husband. She was purchased from a pet store. She is a BYB dog, I discovered after some research. I haven't had any trouble with fanconi yet (hopefully not ever). Bella does have a luxating patella, which is nearly always inherited. Good breeders know better than to breed dogs with this defect… I would not purchase a basenji through a pet store or BYB again, knowing what I know now. I would go through a reputable breeder or rescue group. But I still wouldn't trade her for the world!
…A similar situation happened not long ago with the food brand "Canidae" and many, many dogs had digestive issues due to the change in recipe. I urge you to contact them if there are issues...
I'm glad you mentioned this, because Canidae was my other favorite brand…
Well, it is the dry kibble she is eating… we have an awful time with any canned/wet food. Her stomach is quite sensitive... I will try the pumpkin or sweet potatoes. However, I may have to switch back to another of our tolerated foods to keep from having "stinky butt" in the future...:rolleyes:
Has anyone else who feeds Merrick noticed the change? Bella eats Merrick's Grammy's Chicken Pot Pie. There used to be little freeze dried peas, apples, liver, etc… in it. But now they have changed the formula. The peas, apples, and liver must be ground up inside now... and they added "life source bits" (which she doesn't like). Since the fiber is not as "rough" as it used to be, we are having trouble with anal glands! This really upsets me as I had thought I found the perfect food for her... now I guess I will have to change again:mad::mad::mad: Has this affected any of your Bs this way???
