They have him right now on Novolin 5ml x twice a day. They don't want me testing him yet. His vet is keeping him overnight next week to monitor glucose & do this every 3 months over the next 9 months. I feed Jaberi Fromm gold right now he's getting a cup with a topper of Turkey,carrots,peas, pumpkin, zucchini,chicken hearts, bone broth, pinto beans &turmeric. He is weighing in at 23lbs he has always weighed 32/33 lbs. All he does is lay around. I tried to take him for a walk only took him couple of blocks. He seemed shaky when we got back. I just hope I can just get him regulated. I'm looking into the cataract surgery but I hear it's quiet expensive..
My 11 yr old basenji Jaberi has been diagnosed with diabetes. I had taken him to a vet in Stockton for health certificate to fly. I thought while I'm here I'll get his senior check up. They drew blood a couple of days later vet calls says everything is fine Cholesterol was slightly elevated. Nothing to worry about that was in May. I moved to Houston in mid June and because of temperatures being above 86 I couldn't fly him. I finally had to have a service that transports animal bring. Long story short it about a month before I got him back. He was so skinny I cried I thought somebody was not feeding him. My son assured me he was well taken care of. So I thought maybe he was stressed out he's never away from me this long. Well took him to a vet out her. She got his records his blood sugar was 400 back in May. I have to give him 2 shots a day and he now getting cataracts.
Does anyone experience this or have any advice? He has never been sick ever in 11 yrs.
I have flown mine 3 times. Once when he was 4
Honolulu to San Francisco 5 hr flight when we moved. Once San Francisco to Houston with stop over Dallas then fly back 2 months later. He hated each time hated it & let you know it. You can’t sedate them or airline will not fly them. Also airline makes you get health check from vet that has been done within 3 days of travel.
Next time I’ll drive
Thank you for all your information I will try some of these parks out. He loves to run & play with other dogs.
Jaberi loves Shiba inu's & french bulldogs…..... But the minute he sees a boxer, bulldogs he is irrated. I have to lead him far away.
Aloha Patty ,
Jaberi means Brave .You do not see many Basenji's in Hawaii & if you do you end up talking forever to the owners cause they are as surprised as you are. But Jaberi so loved the heat/sun, but was not too crazy about the beach. We would have bring him an umbrella & a mat to lay on, and Hawaii Kai dog park in O'ahu is the best.
Yes it was hard to leave but had to put the family first thing. We hope to move back in 2 yrs I hope, even thoguh we are both from the mainland I am from Northern Cali & Sam is from Omaha, Ewa Beach will always be home. But I do love me some Canada, Vancover love it Eh….....
I wish I could find some basenji's around here. I have been looking to know avail, even a decent dog park. The couple I found here in San Jose some very aggressive dog behavior. Also Jaberi does have some issues with bulldogs, pitbulls, boxers I don't know if it is the ALPHA thing going on or what. I am also looking into another B do you know of any good breeders in the area??? I would love a Tri.........
If anyone has info on Dog Parks in the Bay Area, meet ups & also a breeder in the area please let me know.........
Love this website!!!
We have been living in O'ahu for the last 9 yrs. Jaberi was born in Kula, Maui he is 4 yrs old, red/white , he is a total island boy ( loves the heat), his favorite thing was chasing the B52's aka flying roaches, but hates the ocean & water of any kind,. We moved back in Nov & all of us have not gotten used to the "cold" here.
Jaberi's breeder is Nancy Greenwell, his grandfather is Kazor Motumbo has won several Best in Shows in Hawaii.
I love when you meet up with another B owner they just get what you're talking about. Sharing stories is such fun. I have only run into a couple of B's at the dog park we would go to in Hawaii Kai . But its like they part the way to get to each other.
Can anyone give me any names of some dog parks in the Bay Area? I have gone to a few, but so small not much running space.
Suzanne, Sam & Jaberi
