Did see an ortho and she didn't think plating would be good for him sense he is diabetic. That it might cause issues. The brake is in his wrist and the bone is broke in couple of spots. is the casting hard on them. he would have to be crated the whole time.
Was wondering if anyone has any information on how a B did with an amputation. Are boy has a very bad broken wrist on his hind leg. Diabetes so that also complicates things also. The vet has given us a few options, one is pinning with a halo devise, casting which he would have to wear for at least 12 wks or more or amputation. The other option would be to plate it, but they don't want to do this one because of the skin being to thin. We have talked about the casting or amputation. Please any advise. Just want to help my boy.
Was wondering if anyone else's basenji has or had this before. My boy has been having some coughing and choking problems. He also wheezes when he runs around allot. Not sure if he has allergy's to something or what. I have had him to the vet, they think he might have a bronchial allergy. They are not sure. They took some x-ray's last year and took some more today to see if anything has changed, Haven't heard anything back yet, the vet said they may have a radiologist look at them. Any suggestions to help him would be appreciated. Thank you.
