Has anyone on this Basenji forum ever had to have a toe on there Basenji removed? My little guy, now age 12, has a somewhat black toenail on his back paw. I had the vet look at it and he tells me this is sort of like melanoma that humans get, although rare in dogs. He is advising me to have the toe removed rather quickly! Any information is helpful!
Hello all you Basenji owners...a few weeks ago the FDA made a major call out on grain free foods and report that they have found them to cause heart disease! I thought I was correct in thinking these special dogs were not to be fed wheat,corn,soy
am I wrong? Currently using a dry food made by OPEN FARM. It is a humanely & sustainably sourced pasture raised Lamb recipe. Lamb raised on grass fed diet, free from antibiotics & added growth hormones. 100% traceable ingredients.
Ingredients ~ Lamb,Chickpeas,Ocean whitefish, Field peas,Herring meal,coconut oil,red & green lentils, pumpkin,salmon Oil,cranberries,chicory root,apples,choline chloride (?) , salt,mixed tocopherols (preservative) Vit E ,riboflavin,Vit d,vit b12, turmeric.
The report from FDA says ANY grain free is not good! especially those with chick peas, etc.
Please let me know your thoughts on this..my little guy is 12 and slowing down and usually does not eat well..any suggestions are appreciated.
One last thing, has anyone used "Pet-Fresh" dog food?
Wow, my B guy, now almost 12 has always had allergies, but I would welcome ANY info on quarter size cysts that have been appearing all over his little body. My vet says the are nothing to worry about and not needing to remove them if you can wrap your fingers all around them, they are not attached. He did an extraction from one and told me they are just benign.
Has anyone ever seen these on there B's? I think they are environmental...???
Does anyone know of a Holistic method to get rid of these? I have him on a VERY clean diet and he doing great other than this. Thank you!
