I hope there is a Basenji owner out there that can tell me that they have seen this before and what to do.
Kona is my 9 year old Basenji, she is the love of my life !
Kona (for a while now) has had trouble getting out of her soft bed . She does not jumb on the my bed or sofa anymore and has gained quite a few pounds. She was as of 3 weeks ago 29 lbs. she is not on a diet and is 26 lbs. I need her to be 22.
This weight gain was noticed by my friends but i did nothing about it.
Now she walks flat footed. The doctor said "her hocks are down" We tested her for many Autoimune disease and rheumatoid all negative.
Next week i might get her a set of orthotics ( Also was told of surgery by placing a plate and pins in her legs. OUCH! Can't put her through that.
Any thoughts out there?
