Hi y'all I just wanted to give a quick update on my Basenji. During the time I made the original post she had lost her appetite and was losing weight. My family didn't know the severity until we started seeing her bones and she had trouble walking. So we took her to the doctor and she was diagnosed with an infection in her bone marrow. She started taking medicine and receiving fluids twice a week and certain doctors kept saying she may need a blood transfusion others said its 50\50 if she will recover and some were saying it may be best that she be put down. We continued with the medicine and started see improvements in her appetite and ability to walk. Also the bone pain started to subside. She started off taking different medications everyday, but know after checkups twice a month her medicine intake keeps getting reduced. She has gained 20 pounds since the initial appointment. She is not 100% back, but is a far cry from where she was when I originally made this post.

My older girl was around 11 when her tail started getting a bit floppy. She could still curl it but she often had it just hanging down loosely, so I would guess it’s normal. You could certainly have the vet check it on her next checkup.

I have a female Basenji who is 14 years old and 3 months. It is getting extremely rare for her to curl her tail anymore. I just started noticing it recently. Does it have anything to do with age? Or is there any possible health concerns?

Thank You both for your comments! I'll probably take her to the vet for a check up mostly because she hasn't been in a long time.
